Automated unit testing for automation
I'm a software developer (not an automation engieer, so please forgive me if my wording is not precise. I'm working with PA Marine, Finland and we're thinking it would be nice to have some platform for automated unit testing of the Control Builder automation projects. First some simple ones, when the user would just specify values of inputs and outputs, and later maybe some more complex ones with some (probably MATLAB) model behind. The tests would be performed with 800xA, with SoftControllers - so we're thinking purely SW testing.
I'm sure that this is not a unique idea and so I was wondering if maybe something like this have already been developed. Any direction or tips would be greatly appreciated.
The 800xA simulator might provide the funtions you need:
