Testing of household appliances in the manufacturing enterprises often suffers from low efficiency. The adoption of the Web services and grid technology can provide the promising future for improving the test and development efficiency of products. This paper describes a complete test platform for household appliances based on Web services, which allows the users to carry out efficient data analysis and assist products design by providing curve modeling, laboratory environment modeling and performance modeling services. The architecture and realization of test platform have been illustrated and the scalable grid service has been described in details. To demonstrate the test platform based on Web services, a prototype application has been constructed. The results show that the test platform is feasible and effective.
