To cope with the need for flexibility of industrial
applications, and other customer related requirements, functional
control behavior is shifted from hardware to software.
This leads to higher software complexity. Therefore, testing of
industrial software is a key technique to ensure overall system
quality. Based on an analysis of testing approaches in software
engineering and requirements in industrial automation system
design with IEC 61499 function blocks a new unit testing process
is proposed. The implementation of a platform independent test
framework for IEC 61499 function blocks shows the applicability
of the proposed testing process with representative examples. The
presented solution is the first test framework based on the test
first development approach to increase the software quality for
industrial automation systems.
