The World of Quality, Test & Measurement

Improving test system performance is critical to keeping your company competitive in a rapidly changing marketplace. Test improves a product's performance, increases quality and reliability, and lowers return rates – a fact brought home by recent recalls across the automotive industry. GlobalSpec's Quality, Test & Measurement event explores ways to improve test system performance, from simple software optimization to investment in new technologies such as ultrasound and color machine vision. Attendees will also learn how to set up the optimum test strategy to maximize on-time delivery and minimize budget overruns.

Key Take-Aways:
  • Understand what it means to "treat test like a product"
  • Explore the benefits of acoustic microscopy and learn how to set up a color machine vision system
  • Discover why a distributed instrumentation approach to measurement can lead to long-term savings
  • Learn how to select the appropriate level of design-for-testability
