WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1 . A test rig for performing functional tests on a cabin management system (CMS) of a passenger cabin of an aircraft or other mobile platform, the test rig comprising: a plurality of components of the CMS functionally integrated in a manner representative of the installation of the components in the passenger cabin; and

a framework supporting the functionally integrated components, the layout of the components on the framework being non-dimensionally representative of the installation of the components in the passenger cabin.

2. The test rig as defined in claim 1 , wherein:

the framework comprises a generally planar support member to which one or more of the components are attached; and

the framework is located at a ground-based facility and the planar support member is generally vertical relative to a floor of the ground-based facility.

3. The test rig as defined in claim 1 , wherein:

the framework comprises a generally planar support member to which one or more of the components are attached; and

the framework is located at a ground-based facility and the planar support member is non-parallel to a floor of the ground-based facility.

4. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 2 and 3, wherein the support member comprises a plurality of attachment features configured to permit removable attachment of the components to the support member.

5. The test rig as defined in claim 4, wherein the attachment features comprise holes.

6. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 2 to 5, wherein the support member extends between two posts.

7. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 2 to 6, wherein the support member comprises a grillage.

8. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 2 to 7, wherein components are attached to opposite generally planar sides of the support member.

9. The test rig as defined in claim 1 , wherein the framework comprises a grillage to which one or more of the components are attached.

10. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 9, wherein one or more of the components are attached to the framework with a VELCRO strap.

1 1 . The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 10, wherein one or more of the components are attached to the framework with a cable tie.

12. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 1 1 , wherein one or more of the components are attached to the framework via a rack.

13. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 12, wherein one or more of the components are electrically grounded to the framework.

14. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 13, wherein the components are functionally integrated via dimensionally-representative wire harnesses.

15. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 14, comprising a power source electrically connected to one or more of the components, the power source being configured to simulate one or more electric busses of the mobile platform.

16. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 15, wherein the framework comprises a plurality of test rig zones respectively corresponding to passenger cabin zones, the test rig zones respectively supporting one or more of the components associated with the respective passenger cabin zones.

17. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 16, comprising two frameworks disposed adjacent one another to define a corridor between the two frameworks.

18. The test rig as defined in claim 17, wherein each framework respectively supports one or more of the components associated a respective lateral side of the passenger cabin.

19. The test rig as defined in claim 18, wherein one or more of the components supported by one of the frameworks are functionally connected to one or more of the components supported by the other framework via a wire harness extending across the corridor defined between the two frameworks.

20. The test rig as defined in any one of claims 1 to 19, wherein the plurality of components include one or more line-replaceable units associated with two or more of the following systems of the passenger cabin: a lighting system, a climate control system, a sound system, an information system, an in-flight entertainment system and an internet connectivity system.

21 . A method of performing functional tests on a cabin management system (CMS) of a passenger cabin of an aircraft or other mobile platform, the method comprising: attaching a plurality of components of the CMS to a framework where the layout of the components is non-dimensionally representative of the installation of the components in the passenger cabin;

functionally integrating the components in a manner representative of the installation of the components in the passenger cabin; and

performing one or more functional tests on one or more of the components.

22. The method as defined in claim 21 , comprising attaching one or more of the components to opposite generally planar sides of the framework.

23. The method as defined in any one of claims 21 and 22, comprising electrically grounding one or more of the components to the framework.

24. The method as defined in any one of claims 21 to 23, comprising functionally integrating the components via one or more wire harnesses dimensionally-representative of the installation of the components in the passenger cabin.

25. The method as defined in any one of claims 21 to 24, comprising attaching the components of the CMS associated with different passenger cabin zones to corresponding respective zones of the framework.

26. The method as defined in any one of claims 21 to 25, comprising attaching the components of the CMS associated with different lateral sides of the passenger cabin to two corresponding respective frameworks disposed adjacent one another and defining a corridor therebetween.

27. The method as defined in claim 26, comprising functionally integrating one or more of the components attached to one of the frameworks to one or more of the components attached to the other framework via a wire harness extending across the corridor defined between the two frameworks.
