Method of and system for generating a binary shmoo plot in N-dimensional space
A method of generating a plot that evinces common result regions of a test as a function of controllable input parameters includes defining an overall plot region that is a function of the maximum and a minimum of each input parameter. The method further subdivides the overall plot region into at least two sub-regions, where each of the sub-regions has a sub-region boundary. The method evaluates, for each of the sub-regions, a plurality of boundary test conditions on the sub-region boundary according to the test, so as to assign a test status to each of the plurality of boundary test conditions. For each of the sub-regions with at least a predetermined threshold number of boundary test conditions having a common test status, the method designates the sub-region with the common test status. For each of the sub-regions not having at least the predetermined threshold number of boundary test conditions with a common test status, the method designates that sub-region with an indeterminate status. The method recursively performs the subdividing step, the evaluating step and the designating step for each of the sub-regions designated with an unknown result status until all of said sub-regions are designated by a determinate test status.
I actually came up with that [[:-)]]
