Test

Test (general) is a technical operation that consists of the determination of one or more product, process or service characteristics according to a specified procedure. (ISO/IEC Guide 2, 13.1)

Testability

Degree at which a software component or module enables and facilitates testing criteria to be determined and appropriate tests taken.

Testing

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): VDA volume 13 .

Testing tools

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): VDA volume 13 .

Tier 1, ..., n

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Automotive SPICE.

To calibrate

Calibration: complete set of operations which estimates under specified conditions the calibration function from observations of the response variable, Y, obtained on reference states.

Tolerance

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Standardised complaint process. Tolerance = the difference between the upper and lower values, or the difference between the upper limit value and lower limit value. The tolerance of a characteristic in question is defined as a difference between two defined values and thus predefined values of quantitative characteristics.
