Testbed Development Plan: Validation and Testing System Development

Published

Author(s)

Mary Mitchell

Abstract

This document describes a plan to construct validation software tools which will be used to ensure the quality of STEP. The Validation Testing System is an integral part of an overall project to establish the National PDES Testbed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Testbed was initiated in 1988 under the sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Defense Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) program. A major goal of the Testbed is to provide technical leadership in a national effort to implement a complete and useful specification for the exchange of product data. This specification must be designed to meet the needs of American industry and the CALS program.
