During the last few years the realization that automatic testing is a convenient tool for reducing manpower and costs has become apparent. However, if the application of automation is not properly done, the end result can actually increase costs and cause many other problems. This paper discusses Navy problems in automatic testing and some remedies. Included will be a discussion of the following topics: (1) an RDT and E program for development of automated testing program for development of automated testing techniques; (2) selection and acquisition of the proper Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) (i.e. built-in, special purpose, general purpose, self-test); (3) problems in acquiring ATE software; (4) standardization of ATE; and (5) description of available organizations, tools and aids to assist in acquiring and applying ATE.
