Eltek Valere about WATS
Reidar Hagen - CTO - Test data management situation
The company have outsourced production worldwide and were very vulnerable to late test data reporting and repair reports. This caused Eltek to produce products with failures without noticing soon enough and he was concerned that they could lose money and reputation in the market.
It took up to three weeks for Eltek to get reports from their production sites due to manual reporting of yield and SPC data, even though test stations where automated with NI test executive and LabVIEW.
He said he needed some way to get easy access to production yield and SPC data from all their contractors no more than one day old.
WATS provided him with these capabilities
WATS improved their reporting loop by more than 90%, from more than 20 days to less than one day. They have now easy access to test data through the web browser and follow up their outsourced production on a daily basis. They discover error situations instantly through email based SPC alarms and have close "follow-up" capacity of their products.
Eltek Valere are now confident of the global outsourcing.
