TestStand is a instruction sequences engine and a development environment for creating a test sequencer evolved several common test for different products. We have a generic software that loads, as the test product, sequences specifying actions, tests and tolerances, and components (such as DLLs) for communication with the hardware.
Operating software : MS Windows XP Measurement software : NI LabWindows/CVI Test Sequencer : NI TestStand Reports : MS Excel
How does it work ?
The operator connects the car radio to the interface which is connected to the test bench. He identifies the unit to be tested with the car radio bar code. The sequence test the sound quality, the consomation, the EEPROM software and the radio reception. At the end of the tests, a Excel formated report is generated.
The modular material and software architecture allows the component generisation and thus a change robustness gain.
