Hey, Teststand folks. What's the best way in Teststand 2014 to do this? I'm setting up testing 4 UUTs in parallel using the Batch model. The test sequence has two parts. 2 UUTs at a time can run Part 1. While 2 UUTs are doing the Part 1 test, I want the other 2 UUTs to do the Part 2 test. Then when they're done Part 2, wait for Part 1 slots to become available and then run Part 1. And those UUTs that had run Part 1 first will then run Part 2.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If I understand correctly, an Auto Schedule step at the top level would be perfect for this:
Use Auto Scheduled Resource ("Part 1 - Slot 1", "Part 1 - Slot 2") // these are two different resource alternatives
// steps that do part 1. Use the Acquired Lock output if you need to know which slot
Use Auto Scheduled Resource ("Part 2 - Slot 1", "Part 2 - Slot 2") // these are two different resource alternatives
// steps that do part 2. Use the Acquired Lock output if you need to know which slot

Hi, James. Wow you're right, the Auto Schedule feature fits the bill. I'm looking at the NI example 'Comparing Resource Usage Strategies.seq', subsequence 'Auto Scheduled With Additional DMM'. That is neat - will try it.
