• Quantitative Test Techniques for Advanced Automatic Checkout

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):240 - 250
Cited by:  Papers (3)
| | PDF (2388 KB)

High-speed, digital, internally-programmed, automatic checkout equipment is a powerful test tool whose impact has not yet been felt in testing large complex systems. It has, in certain ways, much higher test capabilities than either a sequentially programmed machine or a human operator. For these capabilities to be harnessed, new test techniques are required to ensure that failures or weaknesses a... View full abstract»

• Operational Criteria for Automatic Missile Readiness Testing

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):251 - 259

| | PDF (1549 KB)

One of the activities in which automatic testing plays a key role is missile readiness testing, which is that set of tests performed regularly for the purpose of detecting failures that have occurred in the missile and launch equipment. This is done in order to maintain a high state of operational readiness, measured in terms of readiness probability. An important adjunct to criteria for physical ... View full abstract»

• An Application of Inverse Probability to Fault Isolation

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):260 - 267
Cited by:  Papers (4)
| | PDF (810 KB)

Inverse probability is applied to the problem of isolating faults in an electrical network by an analysis of failure symptoms. Prior to performing fault isolation, the performance of a network with respect to possible failures is established. Then, identifying each possible failure as a separate event, the procedure for isolating a fault is presented in terms of extracting a signal'' from random... View full abstract»

• Self-Testing and Verification Techniques as Applied to an Airborne Military Guidance Computer

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):268 - 275
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (1507 KB)

A major problem in the field of unattended military airborne guidance equipment is the reliability and verification of proper operation. The testing techniques used to provide the maximum assurance of correct operation are a function of the level of complexity of testing. The levels of testing are: 1) Depot 2) Field Maintenance 3) Preflight 4) Inflight This paper examines the testing requirements ... View full abstract»

• Computer Logic Testing by Simulation

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):275 - 282

| | PDF (1415 KB)

With the advent of high-speed computers having large memory capacities, it has become possible to automate one of the more difficult and time-consuming areas of computer developmental work; namely, that of checking the logical design. This paper describes one such method which utilizes an IBM 704 to simulate the logical equivalent of a specific computer under development by Nortronics Division of ... View full abstract»

• Statistical Considerations in Element Value Solutions

Cited by:  Papers (7)
| | PDF (1088 KB)

This paper presents a method of fault isolation in electrical networks by determination of circuit element values from a sufficient set of measurements at the available or partly available terminals. The method requires that the circuit configuration be known; the measurements taken are voltage and current responses to sinusoidal stimuli of specified frequencies. The method presented is an iterati... View full abstract»

• An Alternative Method for Obtaining Performance Figures

Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):288 - 296
| | PDF (1554 KB)

A performance figure indicates the ability of a system to perform a task. At present, several checkout systems obtain performance figures by employing the prime equipment directly in a mission simulation. The measure-compute approach is proposed as an alternative which might sometimes be applied more advantageously. In the measure-compute approach, the prime equipment is not directly involved in t...

| | PDF (1092 KB)

In the development of computer programs for automatic checkout and the simplification of switching networks, certain simple logical routines occur frequently. Only a few such routines are needed to cover a large number of situations. A concise list or catalog of such routines is given in this paper. The shortest and simplest of these routines are called micro-programs. Somewhat more involved routi... View full abstract»

• Diagnosis in Automatic Checkout

| | PDF (1432 KB)

This paper summarizes several approaches to the problem of isolating faults in a complex system. The formulation of a diagnostic procedure involves 1) logical analysis techniques for the interpretation of results obtained from testing and 2) optimization techniques to insure that procedures employed in performing tests, selecting or sequencing tests, processing data, etc., are as efficient as poss...

| | PDF (1318 KB)

This paper describes how a host of sensors sensitive to X rays, ultraviolet and infrared, and to other electric or magnetic fields are distributed throughout a complex electronic system in such a manner that the system is continuously monitored to determine its condition of operability. The large quantity of data derived from these sensors are scanned by television techniques in order to meet the ... View full abstract»
