Abstract : This report documents an evaluation of the TestMaster Version 1.6 software commercial product within a pilot program and environment employing the Automated Validation (AutoVal) Version 3.00u toolset of Wright Laboratory, Avionics Directorate, System Concepts and Simulation Division, Software/Hardware Technology Branch (WL/AASH). The TestMaster Pilot Program conducted by SMC assessed the performance and capabilities of the Teradyne TestMaster commercial product for use in testing embedded Operational Flight Program (OFP) software in conjunction with WL/AASH's AutoVal toolset. This document describes the procedures followed and the results achieved during the TestMaster Pilot Program. A brief background survey and examination of the Program goals and approach in Section 3.0 provides a framework for the discussion of test strategies and results analyzed in Section 4.0. In addition, the report addresses applicable metrics and offers recommendations for future action.
