Handling physical units such as kilometers and miles simultaneously in a test case has been a risky undertaking in the past. Thanks to the support of physical units this risk is eliminated. TPT automatically converts values to guarantee unit compatibility of signals. For example, if “1 mile” is assigned to a signal with unit “km“, TPT converts miles-to-km automatically.
Unit consistency is also checked: “2miles + 1m_s” will be reported as an error, whereas “2 miles + 1m_s * 1min” is consistent and converted to ensure correct unit sensitive compuations. Calculations with corrupted usage of units are a thing of the past and testing becomes easier and more consistent.
The use of units is supported in test modelling and test assessments.
