How to Use Actions in Multi-Station Testing – The Lead – Deputy Model

In his latest TechWell column, Hans Buwalda discusses multi-station testing with actions, in particular using the “lead-deputy model.”  In this model, a lead machine is responsible for most of the UI interaction of a test, but will also assign commands to the one or more “deputy” machines. The “deputy” machines work like normal test machines and are able to interpret and execute actions. They can work in sync with the lead machine, or in parallel.

Read Hans’ full article online at Techwell.com. You will also find an example there of how this can work in a system for bank tellers.
