“Understand your product and its performance”

OverallSkyWATS allowed us to perform R&R comparisons of test stations in a fast and efficient manner and immediately highlighted an issue with a slight mismatch in performance which we were able to rectify (and verify the fix) with minimal downtime. I've used this product for over 10 years because I trust it and the team behind it.
ProsProvides an almost "codeless" solution for those looking to quickly store test data from TestStand / LabVIEW. The data that is stored is then able to be reviewed and analyzed quickly allowing us to respond to product yield or performance issues in a proactive manner. Critical for any complex high volume test solution.
ConsInability to define (or add) custom queries or reports.

“working as Manufacturing test engineer for over 12 years”

Overallbe able to have the overview of the weekly/daily first pass yield, make it easier to target the highest failing test step in the manufacturing test.
Prosvery easy to bring the statistics for the period that the user is interested in. it gives graphic view for the measurements in the manufacturing , highlights the highest failing steps with failing rate.
Consit needed to preload the sequence model in TestStand back when I was using it. If it can be a hot plug app that can be merge in after the test development, it'll be great!

“Great tool for SPC !”

OverallWe are using Skywats for SPC and analyse test yield, quantity tested per day/week and to improve our process, test benches and test softwares. This tool is very powerfull and give us quickly and easily, a lot of precious informations we took a lot of time to find before.
ProsEasy to use and for looking information. Great for SPC analysis and be proactive for production support. Give us key parameters (yield, top 10 failures...) to improve our test bench and test software.
ConsNeed training and practice to understand and find informations we are looking for.

“My Review”

OverallSo far the skyWATS have reduced our problem solving processs' lead time signifcantly and the available data with complete test history immediately shows the proble as it is now and how it is comparable to previous tests
ProsThe level of automation to the test data management, easiness of cloud based service, no need to maintain tools
ConsSometimes it feels that you have almost too much alternative approaches to get needed results so it's bit easy to lost in the GUI.
