Fundamentals of Building a Test System
Explore business topics from modeling total-cost-of-ownership to in-depth technical concepts such as software abstraction layers and thermal profiling.
Best-in-class production test teams don’t just build test stations—they execute against a test strategy that actively supports their company’s performance. Without this, teams can be seen as “just a cost center,” which limits investment. Despite ever-growing coverage requirements, tightening NPI schedules, limiting budgets, and functional globalization, teams are achieving success by using standardized processes, systems, and data to improve development productivity, test station design quality, and operational efficiency.

Standardization is a priority for production test teams seeking productivity, quality, and efficiency gain. NI’s open, modular software tools and precision instrumentation are standardized across thousands of factories worldwide—giving confidence to engineers, business leaders, and operators alike.
We reduced test development from months to weeks despite a 2.5X test coverage increase on new products.
NI’s Kyle Voosen interviews Chris Robinson of Medtronic on what it means to engineer ambitiously. Chris describes the challenges his team faces focusing on automated production test of pacemakers and gives insights into the innovations they have implemented to become a best-in-class global manufacturer.
The only way to get your test systems done in less time is to move faster by eliminating wasteful tasks during the design, deployment, and maintenance of the system. Learn best practices from this automotive application: how to hit your production test development deadlines, every time.
