    The integration and test phase of complex manufacturing machines, like an ASML lithographic manufacturing system, is expensive and time consuming. The tests that can be performed at a certain point in time during the integration phase depend on the modules that are integrated and therefore on the integration sequence. In this paper, we introduce a mathematical model to describe an overall integration and test sequencing problem and we propose an algorithm to solve this problem. The method is a combination of integration sequencing and test sequencing. Furthermore, we introduce several strategies that determine when test phases should start. With a case study within the development of a software release that is used to control a lithographic machine, we show that the described method and strategies can be used to solve real-life problems.
