WATS – white paper statement - Nera
WATS – white paper statement
The WATS system has after just a few months proved to be a very useful tool for Nera Networks. In the run of the first production series, of our new product, the system has been used to improve both the design, manufacturing process and determine of test-limits.
We have with the excelled reports like FPY and SPC been able to adjust processes on the fly. With real time storage of measurement data, our R&D designers have been able to follow up the manufacturing and give the suppliers useful and fast feedback.
We feel that we are in control of the manufacturing despite of that the manufacturing is located at several sites around the world. With WATS system we feel comfortable with the upcoming ramp-up and volume manufacturing, because we see that the system will save us both time and cost.
The WATS system has made the life easier for many departments at Nera, but especially at R&D for the Test Records and statistics, at QA for the Yield reports and at Procurement for the possibility to see volume of completed units.
The return rate of this investment is great. The corrective actions we have been able to perform in the first months at product and process, based at the information provided by the WATS system, has saved us at least the cost of the product.
