The complexity of the collection and aggregation of Test Data is largely a result of the multitude of different formats that exist within Test teams at organizations. Even in a specific product family there can be multiple generations of test formats and the way to capture the Test Data can radically change. This results in a fractured ecosystem of data formats which make it difficult for Test Engineers and Management to get a global view of what is going on with their product quality. Using NI TestStand IntraStage has worked with a major UK Aerospace Electronics Manufacturer to address these problems

Testing Set-top Boxes with NI Hardware and Software
Using National Instruments PXI-based modular instruments and open software, such as NI LabVIEW, NI TestStand, NI Audio Master and the NI Video Measurements Suite, Solorzano has dramatically reduced the test time by a factor of three, from days to only a few hours. This also provides the flexibility to concurrently test multiple BSkyB set-top boxes.
