The core tasks of the system is to manage all data in an efficient manner and activities related to test jobs, test equipment and units under test. Traditionally, this is implemented by different people with the help of different systems. APPLICATION While there is a trend towards increasing the complexity of the processes / 236 and diversity of systems in test facilities, the test costs must be dramatically reduced. Simultaneously, the reliability, reproducibility and quality of the process need to be improved. AVL TESTLIFE 1™ supports users in achieving these seemingly contradictory objectives. To support the seamless implementation of test processes, the system controls the work steps and provides all data and documents that are relevant in the corresponding step. In this way, the planning, definition and implementation of test jobs, as well as inventorying, maintenance, and calibration of test equipment are managed and optimized with the help of the AVL TESTLIFE 1™. The existing system environment within the test facility is not replaced, but the AVL TESTLIFE 1™ integrates and interacts with the existing systems, such as project management, unit under test and calibration data management. Thus, the system taps into the unused productivity potential of a test facility through cross-networking and providing the corresponding information at the right time and place. BENEFITS AT A GLANCE • Higher utilization of the testbeds (typically an increase of 20 percentage points, according to an AVL study) • Reduction of non-productive time (e.g. test repetition due to incorrect methodology or erroneous parameters) • Reduction of the time and costs of administrative activities and redundant, manual data transfers • Continuous utilization optimization through comparison of planned and actual utilization • IT-supported standardization and continuous optimization of the workflow Analysis Data Storage Test Execution Planning Scheduling Preparation Test Monitoring Test Order AVL TESTLIFE 1™ AVL TESTLIFE 1™, our modular test facility management system, can be configured for many applications (engines, gears, components, rollers etc.). Open, standardized interfaces make AVL TESTLIFE 1™ easy to integrate into existing IT infrastructures, guaranteeing automated information flow from job order to the conclusion of a test.
