Abstract

This exercise and monitor test tool is useful during system development and field debugging to enable user-created scenarios representing actual system tasks to be entered as though keyed by operators from multiple terminals, which provides realistic testing of a shared logic system. The tool provides for measurement of system response times and storage of the task scenarios for repeated use and modification. The interface of this test system to the hardware of the shared logic system is at the keyboard connection. User-created scenarios, representing actual productive work, are entered into the display stations as if keyed by a system operator. Entry is on an individual keystroke basis, at user selected keying rates.
