Updated Jul 30, 2023



  • TestStand

  • Windows

This tutorial shows you how to configure TestStand to use a different process model (sequential, batch, or parallel) for specific sequence files. This is helpful if you have several TestStand sequence files and you want to run some of the sequence files using a particular process model and others using a different process model.
