Open Test Framework

Pro­fes­sio­nal Deve­lop­ment of gene­ric Tes­ter App­li­ca­ti­ons

The Open Test Fra­me­work is a com­ple­te deve­lop­ment envi­ron­ment for desi­gning, main­tai­ning and tes­ting a new gene­ra­tion of pro­cess-safe test app­li­ca­ti­ons that can be run on Win­dows com­pu­ters. The clear and intui­ti­ve user inter­fa­ce hel­ps the Open Test Fra­me­work work­flow aut­hors and pro­ject mana­gers to crea­te and deli­ver fas­ter com­pre­hen­si­ve and con­vin­cing tes­ter solu­ti­ons. All rele­vant stan­dards such as ISO 13209 (OTX), ISO 22900 (MVCI) and ISO 22901 (ODX) are sup­por­ted. For the adap­ta­tion to spe­ci­fic custo­mer requests the Open Test Fra­me­work can be exten­ded relea­se safe­ly to almost any level.

Are­as of app­li­ca­tion

The app­li­ca­tion are­as of open tes­ting fra­me­works ran­ge from the basic wor­king through stan­dar­di­zed test sequences to the crea­tion of fur­ther dis­tri­buta­ble tes­ter app­li­ca­ti­ons. The­re­by are current­ly app­li­ca­ti­ons in the field of off-board vehic­le dia­gno­stics to the fore. Examp­les are a uni­ver­sal and quick­ly adap­ta­ble flash tool, tool for checking the pro­to­col con­for­mi­ty of elec­tro­nic con­trol unit, sim­ple and com­plex deve­lop­ment and pro­duc­tion tes­ter or even a sim­ple scan tool in the envi­ro­ment of the OBD.

Main func­ti­ons


Deve­lop­ment Envi­ron­ment

  • Self defi­na­ble OTX tem­pla­tes (see. offi­ce tem­pla­tes incl. pla­ce­hol­ders) for quick and easy crea­tion of app­li­ca­tion-spe­ci­fic struc­tu­red pro­jects, docu­ments or pro­ce­du­res
  • Com­pre­hen­si­ve pro­ject mana­ge­ment (file repo­si­to­ry)
  • Libra­ry con­cept for the crea­tion and editing of sequences from the tech­ni­cal point of view of a tech­ni­cian
  • Export and import of PTX-pro­jects accor­ding to ISO 22901-1

  • Exten­si­ve opti­ons for sear­ching and repla­cing on object-level
  • Auto­ma­tic refe­rence adjust­ment with pre­view
  • Nati­ve and direct pro­ces­sing of OTX data (no import or export)
  • Indus­try tes­ted (Volks­wa­gen, Por­sche, Audi, etc.)



Crea­te test sequences inde­pen­dent­ly of the under­ly­ing run­ti­me sys­tem.

  • Inde­pen­dent of the exe­cu­tion sys­tem. New run­ti­me imple­men­ta­ti­ons (eg. text block data­ba­se) can be easi­ly added
  • Inde­pen­dent of the dia­gno­stic run­ti­me sys­tem (cur­rent imple­men­ta­ti­ons of DSA PRO­DIS.MCD, VW-MCD and RA-MVCI ser­ver)


Team col­la­bo­ra­tion

Connect the deve­lop­ment team, pro­ject par­ti­ci­pants and end-users through inte­gra­ted tools that pro­mo­te col­la­bo­ra­tion.


Run, Debug & Test

Iden­tify and resol­ve pro­blems through which the sequences are not exe­cu­ted cor­rect­ly.

  • Gene­ra­tion and com­pi­la­tion of exe­cuta­ble C# code on the fly (any other lan­gua­ges ​can be exten­ded)
