Experimental and theoretical studies were made for the validation of theoretical automatic checkout techniques. After a discussion of the state of art, detailed validation studies are described for three specific fault isolation techniques the UNIVAC Key Element Search, the RCA-Test Point Algorithm Technique, and the University of Pennsylvania Statistical Estimation Fault Isolation Procedure. The extent to which such techniques can be applied to practical electronic circuits is determined it is indicated that the procedure embodying estimation of component parameter values has most potential value as a general purpose fault isolation technique. Thorough discussions are presented of the experimental equipment designed and assembled, the FORTRAN programs written for the IBM-7094, and the PLACE programs written for the Bendix ANGJQ-9 as required in the detailed validation studies. Additional contributions are presented concerning fault isolation of control systems as well as a variety of electronic systems with suggestions as to future Air Force efforts in the automatic checkout field.
