Unlock the Power of Data Across the Product Life Cycle

Aerospace and defense organizations are under high pressure to deliver products faster to maintain their competitive advantage, yet they are also being challenged with new technologies that take longer to design, test, and manufacture. Engineering and operations teams need new ways to improve their processes to meet these demands, including accelerating time to market, operational efficiency, first pass yield, and improving overall manufacturing quality. Challenges these teams face include:


  • Manufacturing and engineering teams can often access some of the data they need to know what is happening, but lack the data infrastructure, tools, and data processing automation to quickly determine why.
  • Test data, the best source of information about how a product actually performs, is often siloed from process and manufacturing machine data and is difficult to filter and query for rapid analysis. 
  • Most universal off-the-shelf analytics solutions require significant customization and additional software to provide meaningful business insights for complex, domain-specific problems.

Test System and Data Management

  • SystemLink™ Asset Module connects testers together for real-time monitoring and alerting, optimized utilization, centralized configuration management, and predictive maintenance.

  • SystemLink™ Test Module collects and processes test data, enabling analytics and visualizations for actionable insights from test systems, test results, and associated engineering data.

  • OptimalPlus combines test data with real-time edge collection and processing of manufacturing machine data, enterprise databases, and in-use sources to enable impactful changes across the product life cycle using advanced analytics, AI/ML, and automated control loops.
