Harmonized Conformance Testing for Product Data Managers
David Flater, KC Morris
The Testability of Interaction-Driven Manufacturing Systems project seeks to enhance the design-for-testability of specifications for manufacturing software interfaces, derive a test method that is usable for interaction-driven manufacturing systems in general, and foster the reuse of testing artifacts. For our first testability study we constructed some prototype conformance and interoperability tests for the Product Data Management Enablers standard from the Object Management Group. We reused test data developed for the Product Data Management Schema, a developing standard based on ISO 10303 (the Standard for Exchange of Product Model Data), and enumerated the lessons learned for testing and testability. We plan to reuse some of our new testing artifacts for testing an ISO 10303 Standard Data Access Interface to data based on the Product Data Management Schema.
