Abstract : The problem of generating diagnostic test procedures for combinational logic networks is studied and an algorithm developed that generates test procedures in a form ready to use by a test engineer. The method used to select the input vectors of the test sequence is to choose the 'best' inputs that 'partition' the failures of the network into either single member 'distinguishable' failure classes or 'indistinguishable' failure classes that are 'distinguishable' from the rest of the failures of the network. All knowledge about the behavior of the network is derived from the output results of the test procedures. The algorithm 'simulates' the network to derive the procedures on this basis. (Author)
