Abstract:

The purpose of this study report is to establish a viable baseline plan for the design of the U.S. Army proposed ATE Software Development and Support Facilities. These facilities will be utilized to effect controls over the Test Program Set TPS life cycle, provide dramatic cost savings over the TPS life cycle, and significantly increase the effectiveness of deployed Automatic Test Equipment ATE systems. Maintenance requirements are rapidly changing and management must plan to meet these critical needs. Planning efforts must address the total spectrum of needs. Planning to support the ATE Software Development and Support Facilities included the development of several plans. A Concept Plan sets forth the notion of these Facilities and documents the need for their relative functional capabilities. A Functional Requirements Document formally establishes their functions and provides a basis for the mutual understanding between users and designers regarding the definition of this Facility. In addition, a Design Specification defines the required equipment and resources including hardware, and software, and personnel needed to complement the concept. This Implementation Plan provides a generic description of the organization needed to implement the facility that can be tailored to match the Development and Readiness Command DARCOM TPS policy and organization. The report also places the recommended projects into categories of technology and development with a further breakout of short term and long term.
