Objectives and Approach

This project continued the work on CNMA testing technologies started during phase 3 of ESPRIT Project 955 (Communication Network for Manufacturing Applications). Through that project European industry achieved a world lead in the provision of testing technologies for CIM communication systems.

Specific objectives of this project were:

Exploitation

The development of test tools is likely to affect those European and world standards where deficiencies or the need for increased clarification has been identified.

Draft specifications resulting from the development of testing methodologies formed the basis of future developments, such as embedded testing, test tool integration, common technology and performance measurement. The prototype test tools are available for further development and commercialisation as stand-alone products and as the basis of formally accredited testing facilities.
