Abstract

A previously known algorithm for justification block decisions only ma decisions starting with logic blocks closest to the output side of the logic circuit and progressing toward the input side. For some faults the remade decision count was exhausted before a test was generated.

Algorithm for Test Generation Justification Block Decisions

A previously known algorithm for justification block decisions only ma decisions starting with logic blocks closest to the output side of the logic circuit and progressing toward the input side. For some faults the remade decision count was exhausted before a test was generated.

The addition of the present algorithm in the previously known computer program increased test coverage and reduced running time for generating tests on logic circuits. After all blocks have been assigned which allow the test value to be propagated to a circuit output, this algorithm makes decisions starting with logic blocks closest to the input side and progresses toward the output side. The flow of this algorithm is shown in the flow chart below. See Original.
