N2 - We define a variant of k-of-n testing that we call conservative k-of-n testing. We present a polynomial-time, combinatorial algorithm for maximizing the throughput of conservative k-of-n testing, in a parallel setting. This extends previous work of Kodialam and Condon et al. on the parallel pipelined filter ordering problem, which is the special case where k = 1 (or k = n) [1,2,3]. We also consider the problem of maximizing throughput for standard k-of-n testing, and describe a polynomial-time algorithm for it based on the ellipsoid method.
