Best Practices for Architecting an Automated Test System


With defense programs lasting for half a century, test engineers face the unique challenge of designing test systems that will often outlast their careers. In this presentation, we will explain three best practices for designing an ATE system. More specifically, we will explore best practices for architecting hieratical test software, methods to leverage the latest commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology, and tools for obsolescence planning. By attending this presentation, you will be better prepared to design more robust and future-proof automated test systems.
