The Custom NI VeriStand steps for NI TestStand are designed to make it easier to set up common NI VeriStand actions in NI TestStand. The steps interface with NI VeriStand through NI VeriStand's API's, and include dialogs with increased functiality to simplify creating and running tests from TestStand.
Streamlined steps such as Initialize VeriStand and RT Sequence Numeric Limit Test let you create test sequences at a higher level than before. Spend less time implementing your test sequence and more time validating your design.
The following diagram represents best practices for those using VeriStand as part of a Hardware In the Loop (HIL) solution:
TestStand is the main engine for test automation, with VeriStand being a key part in the cosimulation and execution of the test. DIAdem is used to help analyze logs when necessary. Then these test results and log files can be linked to design documents using tools such as IBM Rational Quality Manager for increased workflow integration.
See the attached document for a tutorial and example of how to use these steps.
