Design of a Flexible, Integrated Testing System for STEP and OMG Standards



KC Morris, David Flater


New software standards supporting integration of manufacturing and engineering systems are emerging at a rapid pace. These standards are based on common method s, which can be exploited in developing tests for systems supporting the standards. This paper describes a system which builds on those methods to support the automatic and rapid development of conformance tests for the emerging standards.
