Abstract:

This study summarizes the potential and requirements for automating the Test Requirement Document TRD generation process. TRDs are complex, time consuming and very expensive to prepare. Cost reduction of the TRD generation process is requisite for improving the lifecycle cost of weapon systems. Current state of the art was surveyed to form a basis for identifying generation techniques employed, planned improvements and future improvement objectives. A prominent limitation is that many current Computer aided designComputer aided engineering workstations are incapable of maintaining large data bases efficiently, thus limiting possibilities of combining programs on a common host. This roadblock and other technological and logistic hurdles are identified and investigated. The extent of current automation is discussed. Keywords Data acquisition Automatic test equipment State of the art.
