On the Airbus using the CFDS ground scanning tests various systems and computers, it is like providing the system/computer with known fake inputs via the CFDS test and seeing the system or computer generates the correct outputs or a fault.
Ground Scanning, for Airbus, is a test were flight conditions are not simulated. It’s simlest test.
Very simple (although I do not remember is this test are available):
Brake # N Ground Scanning, provides brake with hyd pressure for leak check.
A Brake Test, will simulate all conditions during a flight for Brakes, pressure in, antiskid release etc.
Normally, task will indicate which test You must performe, and it depends on previous condition: normal brake wear - ground scanning, wheel with a wear spot: antiskid full test.
Please remember those are just examples, I do not have Manuals with me.
Complete description should be found in front on troubleshooting manual.
(Mechanics don’t use to read this “Introductions”, for neither Boeing nor Airbus Manuals, but I recomend to do it)
