Fault Diagnosis Test

What is a fault diagnosis test?

With the increasing complexity of electronic control systems, having the ability to work logically to find the cause of a failure is increasingly essential. Fault diagnosis tests are used to evaluate candidate's ability to identify faults in electronic and mechanical systems.

How do fault diagnosis tests work?

Fault diagnosis tests typically consist of questions which display a combination of shapes and symbols used in different 'switches'. The candidate needs to work out the underlying process behind the switch systems and discover errors in the system. The abstract switches are displayed in the form of a grid or a flowchart. Fault diagnosis tests do not require any prior technical knowledge, unlike mechanical aptitude tests.
