The dependencies in complex software systems are stretching industry software test capabilities such that schedules and budgets are constantly being compromised at the risk of producing software with more defects and reliability issues. Software Test Appliance Techniques (STAT) technologies are being integrating within our production code to facilitate improved testability and reliability. Modeled from techniques utilized in hardware systems commonly titled Built-in Test (BIT), STAT is used to develop applications that support testability without compromising schedule and budget. The authors have found that STAT supports the development and deployment of robust software applications.
