Improving Processes and Results with Automated Tests
Automated testers can be found in many places in the enterprise. They are used in R&D, in Reliability, and most frequently in Manufacturing. This paper discusses common types of automated test in manufacturing, and shows some generic examples of manufacturing process steps. The examples highlight how automated test is part of a larger process that includes manual steps, including assembly, and how enterprise software can use automated, consolidated test data to improve manufacturing and business processes.
