Benefits of modularity and module level tests
2005 (English)In: Emerging solutions for future manufacturing systems, Springer-Verlag New York, 2005, Vol. 159, 379-386 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Many companies implement a modular architecture to support the need to create more variants with less effort. Although the modular architecture has many benefits, the tests to detect any defects become a major challenge. However, a modular architecture with rlefned functional elements seems beneficial to test at module level, so called MPV (Module Property Verification). This paper presents studies from 29 companies with the purpose of showing trends in the occurrence of defects and how these can support the MPV.
