The innovative testing concepts and techniques presented in this book are designed to enable engineers and managers to achieve a high level of success in product design and production. The book describes the testing process that can affect the quality of a product and presents an approach to using key test methods based on Department of Defense templates. The book focuses on the use of testing in support of design and manufacturing efforts rather than merely as a way of testing product quality. The professionals at AT&T provide detailed explanations of the techniques and applications of integrated testing, as well as practical information on failure reporting systems and design limits. They also include extensive coverage of the concept of "test, analyze, and fix", plus accounts of uniform test reports and field feedback.
