Automated Test System Cost Estimation

Let’s set some expectations before you dive in:

Obviously this is just a quick-and-dirty ballpark estimation tool to give you a feel for costs. It’s likely not going to be horribly accurate. Why? Because there are many nuances to developing a custom automated test system. Feel free to reach out to us for more accurate pricing.

The parameters in the estimator are generally the main levers for custom test system development costs.

The estimator does not include application-specific signal conditioning or instrument costs.

  • Requirements – Pay me now or pay me later.
  • Bug Fixes – Expect them.  Plan for them.  Your life will be better.
  • Documentation – Only create what you’ll actually use or need in the future.
  • Travel – Definitely during integration, maybe during kick-off.
  • Data Storage – Plan this out and create a useful structure.
  • Custom Report Generation – Formatting flexibility will help keep costs down.
  • Engineering Debug Modes – Worth their weight in gold.
