One of the key challenges for large Ada software projects is to define and execute an efficient, cost effective, bounded test program that results in a quality product that meets all customer software requirements. This is particularly challenging in the current climate of Government fixed price contracts. The Command Center Processing and Display System Replacement CCPDS- R project is being developed entirely in Ada by TRW for the U.S. Air Force on a fixed price basis. To mitigate downstream test risks, TRW has defined an incremental test approach that satisfies TRW and Government objectives for informal developmentintegration testing and for formal requirements verification. Features of Ada are employed to create a software architecture that supports an incremental test philosophy and contributes to reduced integration effort and risk. The resulting test approach conforms to DOD-STD-2167A standards.
