T.O.T.E.

The Television & Movie Wiki: for TV, celebrities, and movies.

Stands for Test Operate Test Exit, a process cycle.

  • Test to obtain some representation of the problem state
  • Operate - intervene in some way
  • Test again to see if the problem state is the same - if it is loop back to operate if it isn't
  • Exit - problem solved

A simple example: When driving a car and looking for the appropriate turn off.

  • Test - is this the turnoff? - No
  • Operate - keep driving
  • Test - is this the turnoff? - No
  • Operate - keep driving
  • Test - is this the turnoff? - Yes
  • Exit

(this only finds the correct turnoff, and would be embedded in a larger TOTE)
