Understand your product and its performance

2018-09-03

SkyWATS allowed us to perform R&R comparisons of test stations in a fast and efficient manner and immediately highlighted an issue with a slight mismatch in performance which we were able to rectify (and verify the fix) with minimal downtime. I've used this product for over 10 years because I trust it and the team behind it.

Pros

Provides an almost "codeless" solution for those looking to quickly store test data from TestStand / LabVIEW.

Cons

Inability to define (or add) custom queries or reports.

My Review

2018-08-28

So far the skyWATS have reduced our problem solving processs' lead time signifcantly and the available data with complete test history immediately shows the proble as it is now and how it is comparable to previous tests

Pros

The level of automation to the test data management, easiness of cloud based service, no need to maintain tools

Cons

Sometimes it feels that you have almost too much alternative approaches to get needed results so it's bit easy to lost in the GUI.

Data, data, data

2020-06-08

We are able to look at specific data and understand how our production is affected, good or bad.

Pros

Since switching to WATS, the data collection and collation has helped our production teams to truly understand some of the issues we were having.

Cons

Integrating with some of the other software platforms we already had in place was difficult at first and was a bit much having multiple resources giving us, effectively, the same information.

Xiwen T.

working as Manufacturing test engineer for over 12 years

2018-07-16

be able to have the overview of the weekly/daily first pass yield, make it easier to target the highest failing test step in the manufacturing test.

Pros

very easy to bring the statistics for the period that the user is interested in. it gives graphic view for the measurements in the manufacturing , highlights the highest failing steps with failing rate.

Cons

it needed to preload the sequence model in TestStand back when I was using it. If it can be a hot plug app that can be merge in after the test development, it'll be great!
