Abstract : Integrated Diagnostics help reduce costs and improve mobility and mission effectiveness. Integrated diagnostics start when a product is first designed and developed, and conclude only when the product is no longer in use. The integrated diagnostic workbench automates how a test program set (TPS) is developed. A TPS is used on an automated test system (ATS) to verify and diagnose circuits, modules, and systems against a set of expected responses induced by a forced stimulus. This set of expected responses and a forced stimulus is referred to as a vector set. The purpose of such an integration effort is to facilitate more efficient and cost effective development and documentation of test programs for electronic systems and equipment. The goal of these efforts is to reduce both the initial and rehost generation time and cost of TPSs, and to allow greater flexibility when workload is determined. The Rome Laboratory Integrated Diagnostic (ID) Workbench is a set of integrated diagnostic tools executed from a common graphical user interface (GUI). The tools that compose the workbench are broken into two main categories, test automation and vector translation.
