Abstract : The objective of this study was to develop an analytical base of methodologies and procedures to be used in the testability area. Testability is a subset of systems maintainability and is defined by the system fault detection and isolation capability. During this effort, a comprehensive survey of the open and closed literature was performed to determine the analytical concepts, models, algorithms and definitions which are presently in use in the testability area. The findings were summarized, analyzed and evaluated. The results contained in the report include a comprehensive listing, definition, and discussion of commonly used testability parameters and their components; discussion of the problems, and critiques, of certain of the commonly used parameters; a summary discussion of all analytical testability models, analyses techniques and algorithms which were found to exist in the literature; an appendix which contains full summaries of all the survey material; recommendation for modifications of existing procedures and for future research are also made.
