Abstract

Testers need the ability to adapt test planning on the order of days and weeks. PATFrame will use its reasoning engine to prescribe the most effective strategies for the situation at hand. Strategies in this context include methods of experimental designs, test schedules and resource allocation. By facilitating rapid planning and re-planning, the PATFrame reasoning engine will enable users to use information learned during the test process to improve the effectiveness of their own testing rather than simply follow a preset schedule. This capability is particularly attractive in the domain of Systems of Systems testing because the complexity of test planning and scheduling make frequent re-planning by hand infeasible.
