Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9954698A2] The invention relates to a system and a method for configuring and conducting test processes. The system consists of a hardware catalog (2), in which hardware objects (2a ... 2d) relevant to the system are stored as representation of real hardware components (e.g. calibrators, sensors, signal conditioners, signal detection modules, actuators) in addition to a executable objects (3a ... 3d) (e.g. signal detection and processing, display, filing) for configuring and/or testing a measuring structure formed on the basis of the hardware objects and/or the executable objects. The hardware objects (2a ... 2d) and the executable objects (3a ... 3d) have at least one predetermined interface (17 ... 21) for interconnecting the hardware objects (2a ... 2d) and/or the executable objects (3a ... 3d). By representing the measuring hardware components and control algorithms as software objects, a testing tool is obtained which can be fully and continuously used for configuring. Due to the fact that the configuring data can be immediately used and executed, the hardware objects and the signal processing method can be interconnected or flexibly changed. The otherwise required compilation is no longer necessary thereby enabling easy adaptation of test processes.
