Abstract : In order to obtain the enhanced testing capability required to test sophisticated trainer software and to ensure the quality of test documentation, AAI has developed an automated software testing system. Its advantages inlcude: 1. Automatic production of all test documentation. 2. Guaranteed agreement of the values inserted into or read from memory during a test with test documentation. 3. Guaranteed consistency of test documentation with other documents. 4. The ability to compare or insert repetitively large buffers of data; testing is no longer subject to the limitations of hand-insertion of data, or visual comparison of data. 5. Simultaneous updating of both test and test documentation through the editing of test disc files. 6. The ability to save large areas of memory for future comparisons, a feature especially useful for software integration. This paper examines the AAI software package in detail. (Author)
