|Title:||Testing of Interaction-driven Manufacturing Systems|
|Published:||December 02, 1998|
|Abstract:||As automation of manufacturing processes becomes more widespread, manufacturing systems are becoming more and more software dependent. At the same time, the software used is becoming more and more modularized allowing for the creation of customized systems consisting in large part of pre-existing components. This combination of factors leads to considerable flexibility for manufacturing systems, but not without a cost. The reliability of those systems is uncertain due to the lack of experience in how to test such systems. To address this need the National Institute of Standards and Technology''s Manufacturing Systems Integration Division has undertaken a study of how to test interaction-driven manufacturing systems. This paper contains an analysis of both the problem space and the solution space for testing these systems and is the first outcome of that study.|
