Pretend you are a manufacturer in a regulated industry – e.g., the aerospace industry, and those components tend to be low volume high mix – such as control valves. Your company has been maintaining a portfolio of products for 20 years, and your business is very comfortable working with the customers that have partnered with them for years. However, when it comes to bringing in new business it is just too hard to introduce similar products into the manufacturing test lines that already exist – everything down to the assembly instructions has to be managed as an entirely unique entity. Introducing Stepwise gives you the flexibility to manage tests for all your similar products in one place. Once Stepwise is set up to manage build instructions, test instructions, and test execution of a particular product the Test Engineer managing that product could update the sequence to accommodate different test limits in a matter of hours, without having to worry about losing backwards compatibility for legacy revisions. Additionally, sequences for new products with similar tests (mostly reusing existing test steps) could be set up in a day or two, rather than having to develop a new application from scratch.
