Design for testability sounds wonderful in theory, but if it is not used, or worse used to disadvantage, what good is it? With today's escalating technology and management's fear of commitment to a costly testing program, DFT practices are suffering. the author discusses the prominent barriers to accepting design for test: the impact of more advanced technology, the misunderstood role of testing, the lack of management's global view of sthe testing process, and the lack of integrasted tools. Testability standards are briefly discussed as a possible way to overcome these barriers.
