Get help Converting your Data to WATS
WATS is a single platform that can collect data from any test system and data source, regardless of location or data format.
WATS customers can access pre-developed data converters for standard test systems or use in-product data converters for ATML, WATS Standard Text Format and WATS Standard XML/JSON Format, etc.
WATS can read any existing file formats and databases using the WATS Client and our well-documented data conversion technology.
You can upload a data source and allow us or one of our partners to make a pilot converter for you.

Enterprise Software Systems
A tightly integrated Enterprise Software Architecture is increasingly important to ensure that a company’s information flow is optimal. WATS can integrate with many of your business-critical systems. Such as two-way synchronisation of test and repair information with MES systems, product catalogue and Bill-of-Material information from ERP and PLM systems. Or you can publish and read data directly from a Unified Namespace.
Dashboards, Business Intelligence and Third-Party Analytics Applications
You can easily extend your Manufacturing Intelligence platform to BI and dashboard solutions to systems such as Microsoft Power BI, where your test data and KPIs can be displayed with data from other sources. These solutions also allow for customized and advanced data visualization. Should you require analytics features not available in WATS, you can export specific pieces of measurement data to analyze in third party solutions. The benefit of this approach is that you can use the WATS top-down approach for identifying potential issues, followed by very application-specific signal analysis. WATS features native Excel, CSV and XML export. An off-the-shelf connector is available for NI DIAdem to analyze waveform data.
Many of the integration options in WATS is made possible by the RestAPI. This API allows you to extract data and important metrics from manufacturing, as well as supplement your test data with important contextual information such as Bill-of-Materials and component vendor information. You can also use this API to submit test or tracking easily (WIP) reports for your units, access the health status of your test assets, and more.
