Leading electronic manufacturers have discovered that treating test like a product is essential for engineering a competitive test strategy because it enables them to ensure the optimum quality, budget, release date, and utilization of test resources. Treating test like a product ultimately involves giving test system development its own milestones in the NPI tracking system, assigning the appropriate personnel resources, and investing in the necessary internal and external tools to ensure proper test development. This session will discuss proven best practices for treating test like a product. Learn More
