ANSYS SCADE Test
ANSYS SCADE Test gives you a complete environment for creating and managing test cases, measuring coverage, managing test results, and automating execution of test cases for SCADE applications on host and on target.
Test creation and maintenance, together with test execution and coverage analysis, are very time- consuming activities. Engineers using SCADE Test for Verification and Validation (V&V) activities can now benefit from best-in-class technology in both a model-based approach and a cost-effective testing environment, allowing them to significantly reduce the time and expense of their efforts.

SCADE Test includes modules for:
- Prototyping and Test Creation
- Host Execution and Model Coverage
- Target Execution
- Application Lifecycle Management
SCADE Test Rapid Prototyper enables you to create interactive panels using predefined widgets (buttons, sliders, etc.) to interact with the application under test. It empowers model simulation, including connections with SCADE Suite, SCADE Display, ANSYS Simplorer, and many other tools. Its easy-to-design interactive graphical panels enable early requirements validation capabilities, using these features:
SCADE Test Environment for Host is a module that enables developers of embedded software applications using SCADE Suite to automate creation and management of test cases. SCADE Test Environment for Host also allows you to run on host these test cases created during model-based verification activities. Conformance report generation and model coverage measurements are automated, enabling significant time and cost savings over manual testing.
SCADE Test Model Coverage is a module that extends the SCADE Test environment by providing coverage measurement of models and generated code that relies on a high-level, requirements-based test suite. Once test cases are created and executed on host, Test Environment for Host coupled with SCADE Test Model Coverage can measure the model coverage of test cases.
SCADE Test Target Execution automates the generation of a target test harness for COTS tools (IBM Rational® TestRealTime, LDRA TestBed®, Vector Software VectorCAST™). It includes a Test Harness Generator which is customizable for integration in any in-house or COTS target test infrastructure. Test Harness Generator, which translates model test cases into test harness, is qualified as a verification tool under DO-178B and DO-330 TQL-5 tool under DO-178C. SCADE Test Target Execution supports applications developed in SCADE Suite.
