The testing activity for a complex and sophisticated system having embedded software with an objective of zero default is a major industrial concern.
Testing of systems with inter-operating components presents a basic problem: Indeed, it is not sufficient to test each component solely. It is in fact mandatory to test the dynamic behaviour of the whole system, depending upon the components interoperation. This project will deploy a multi-site tele-testing environment (TOPEN) for systems made up of inter-operating components. Mechatronic systems (provided by Ligeron S.A.) and software for on-line monitoring and control (provided by LABEIN) will be used as test scenarios. The METSES project is to deploy a multi-site tele-testing environment for systems made up of inter-operating components, TOPEN. METSES, based on environment TOPEN, will be used to define tests at user-level, specifically designed to validate the behaviour of components with embedded software. Objectives are: * To deploy TOPEN enabling it to be used in industrial projects; * To develop the methodological baseline for the use of TOPEN to check requirements in a systematic fashion. Its applicability will be mainly at integration and transfer/acceptance phases; * To test complex systems. Mechatronic systems (e.g. provided by Ligeron S.A.) and software for on-line monitoring and control (provided by LABEIN); * To propose TOPEN software to clients/customers for full validation.
