This paper will provide guidelines for the application of the System Engineering Process to Test Set Development. It will examine how to ensure customer's needs are met and that potential problems are avoided.

Furthermore, this paper will do more than compare the SE process to the Test Set Development. The processes recommended in this paper will enhance the test set development to reduce cost and increase reliability, and the paper will show the pay off of applying sound SE concepts.

The target of this paper will be Test Set Development related to Unit-Under-Test (UUT) Development. The keys to successfully designing a test set that are hinged on the UUT design will also be identified.
