Paper Abstract

Hughes Aircraft Company builds a variety of Electra-Optical Systems within its Manufacturing Division in El Segundo, California. The magnitude of the testing function within the manufacturing cycle of these systems, whether they are a Laser Fire Control System, a Thermal Imaging System, or some type of dedicated electronics, is almost beyond measure. Whereas testing was once quite simple, today's more complex products demand more complex test strategies. In our typical manufacturing cycle, there are at least nine (9) separate areas in which testing related to the product (end-item) may be performed. In this paper, an overview of these test areas will be discussed along with same of the considerations that are necessary for a logical manufacturing test strategy.
