Project monitoring is a crucial component of product development. The product development has to focus on the actual market needs (requirements), avoid errors, and guarantee the required high quality. Testing against requirements is the key factor to develop the right product at the right time. Requirements are documented in lists or even modelled in special modelling languages. Test criteria must evolve from these requirements and they must be allocated to test cases and suitable test tools. This contribution shows a systematic approach to classify test cases for the development of a group of complex mechatronic products: parallel robots. With the help of design catalogues, a classification that covers mechanical, electronic, and software related test cases was built up. This results in a shared understanding of activities, interfaces, and terms that will assist in more effective product development.

Keywords: Design Theory and Methodology, Design for X, Knowledge and Product Life Cycle Management.
