Test Plan De-Risking

Thorough Scrutiny & Data Analysis

Once your testing is complete, AC engineers collect and analyze the critical test data to validate and verify the performance of your product design. Reporting caters to the complexity of data to determine the best platform for analysis including Excel, scripted data analysis with Python, or specialized mathematical and graphical programming and analysis software like MATLAB or LabVIEW.

Your product’s performance and test results are carefully prepared and reported clearly for a diverse audience. We share test results with your AC Product Development team and necessary cross-functional teams to ensure a high level of visibility.

Our test engineers deliver engineering insights and design recommendations from your test results so that your product’s design is improved quickly and efficiently.

Complex manual testing can benefit from custom automation. AC Manufacturing Automation experts team up with Hardware Testing teams to design automated test devices and fixtures that can perform the testing without the need of manual monitoring or assistance.
