Test Program Set (TPS) Quality Working Group

Last Update: April 14, 2017

Chairman: Ted Patmore, Delta Airlines
APIM 16-101: Supplement 4 to ARINC Report 625: Industry Guide for Component Test Development and Management (19k, pdf)

Goal: Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM)s often deliver a Technical Support and Data Package (TSDP) that contain a cornucopia of documents. The relevant Test Specification data is obscured and difficult to ascertain within the large amount of data that is not relevant to the Test Specification.

The aim of this project is to update the ARINC Report 625-3 in order to emphasize the importance that the OEM provides a Test Specification that is intelligible, unobscured, and complete as possible.

The role of the TSDP is to provide the minimal amount of data required to fully understand and implement the Test Specification. Only data that is pertinent to the Test Specification should be provided. It should be separate and independent of all non-pertinent data.

Issues to be Worked:

To clearly state the Test Specification requirements so that will be delivered on time, in a clear un-obscured format, and banishing the IP concern.
