This paper discusses applications where automatic testing can be a requirement, some of the advantages and disadvantages to both manufacturer and customer, and the demands its use makes upon the aircraft electronic equipment designer. Some of the problems which exist at present are due to the lack of consideration given to the use of automatic testing by the equipment designer. These can be overcome in the future if design, production and test methods are organized to take proper account of them. The constraints that these requirements place on the design processes are discussed.
