User Access Management

To get total value from your test data, you must be able to collect data from your entire relevant value chain. And that you can use the data to collaborate with your suppliers. But that should not mean that you have to give outsiders and subcontractors access to data that does not originate from them. With WATS, you can easily specify user access based on the origin of the data or based on the product group the data belongs to.

Product Management

The Product Manager in WATS lets you define important contextual information such as product names, bill-of-materials, box-build configurations, and the creation of virtual product groups that you can use for easier data reporting and user access management.

Gage RnR

Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility (Gage RnR) is a method used to determine the amount of variation in the measurement data due to the measurement system itself, either from the equipment (repeatability) or operator (reproducibility).

Export Wizard and Certificate Generator

The Export Wizard in WATS lets you mass-export your test data, should you need to. It also allows you to generate PDF test certificates to supplement your product deliveries when you need proof-of-test documentation.

RestAPI

The WATS RestAPI provides you with flexible and powerful two-way integration with third-party solutions such as ERP systems, MES systems, PLM software, dashboard and business intelligence solutions, and more.

Unit Verification Check 

Avoid the risk of sending out products that have not been properly tested, with the Unit Verification Check feature in WATS. Specify the relevant test processes for your different part-number groups. WATS will tell you if the product you are looking at has been tested in all processes, if they happened in the correct order, and if they all passed within a reasonable number of attempts. 

Overall Equipment Efficiency 

Would you like to evaluate better the performance and economical return of your test stations? WATS give you easy access to OEE calculations that combines availability scores, output performance and quality metrics. OEE is by many considered a gold standard in manufacturing. An OEE score of 100% means that you manufacture good parts as fast as intended and with full asset utilization. 

Time Analysis 

Do you want to know how much time you spend executing your different tests? How much time do you spend connecting your products to the test system? Or how long each of the individual test steps consumes. This, together with time analysis for repair, are readily available in WATS.

Work-in-Progress (WIP) Tracking 

WATS features functionality that easily lets you report the manufacturing process your individual units are. You define your different WIP stages in the configuration menu and add a check-in function to your test sequencer or custom scanner application. You can then visually report how many units are in the different stages and track the more detailed status of specific serial numbers.
