ANSYS SCADE Test: An Integrated Solution to Reduce Embedded Code Testing Costs - White Paper

When validating and verifying embedded software, test engineers face a number of difficult challenges. Test creation and maintenance, together with execution and coverage analysis, are time-intensive activities, often involving a great deal of manual work. In addition, software testing efforts performed late in the development stage generate expensive design rework. In some cases, software requirements are inadequate (or even incomplete) to meet user needs.

Software design can be insufficiently documented, and test execution infrastructure must adapt to a variety of hardware targets. But by the end of the process, from a mission-critical standpoint, there should be no software errors in the final product.

This paper presents how an integrated model-based testing solution can help test engineers to reduce testing costs, speed certifications, and bring their products to market faster.
