Test Lifecycle Management
Testing occurs in each phase of vehicle and system development.
Improve quality and mitigate risks by optimizing both physical and virtual testing.
Testing represents 25 percent of a program's cost and time, yet almost a quarter of tests are unplanned. Earlier and improved testing eliminates these unplanned costs and delays while identifying potential flaws or failures which could incur significant program delays, cost overruns and business impact.
Test to Perform expands and enhances how aerospace companies leverage virtual and physical testing throughout the life of the program. Test to Perform connects test teams with designers and expert analysts throughout the program lifecycle. Eliminating the silos across teams improved collaboration and traceability throughout all phases of testing. Management can also discover potential issues earlier and make better decision with full visibility.
With Test to Perform, Aerospace and Defense companies can expand how they test and better define when to test, reducing duplicate effort, reusing existing test procedures and equipment and cutting costs.
Ensure the usage of the right tools and methodology throughout the lifecycle of the program from concept to certification.
Engineers, analysis, manufacturing and quality can orchestrate and interpret all physical and virtual test results with real-time 360° dashboards with full traceability.
Lower testing and certification costs over 25 percent through increased virtual testing, using realistic multi-physics, multidiscipline simulation.
Test to Perform improves the management of testing efforts to discover potential issues before they impact the program. Multi-functional teams can optimize test plans and assess test results through an integrated dashboard to validate and verify product performance for certification.
On November 12, 2014 scientists successfully landed the first probe ever on a comet. The landing had to be done right the first time.
Scientist Dr. Martin Hilchenbach and his team modeled landing scenarios for the Philae Probe and guided design changes that helped ensure its success. Using multi-body simulation, scientists achieved feats not practical through physical testing on Earth.
Test to Perform integrates physical and virtual testing efforts on a single platform to develop a single exhaustive test strategy, engineer the test methodology, execute and interpret tests to reduce the potential risk of failure and ensure satisfaction of the requirements set for the program.
