Upgrading Obsolete Manufacturing Test Systems Webinar



Test equipment ages. Your manufactured products get redesigned with new functionality. Your IT department demands an update to the operating system. Management wants the system to be connected to plant-wide databases.

These scenarios are common reasons that drive the need to upgrading that old test system.

In this webinar we’ll teach you 5 insights to minimize the stress and maximize the success of the development and changeover of the new test system.

A few of the Key Points we’ll cover
We’ll explain reverse engineering methods that’ll help you reach that successful upgrade with fewer unexpected bumps.
We’ll review ways to minimize the production downtime lost during the changeover. This is especially important when the existing system has to be “torn out”.
We’ll give you tips for comparing the new test system against the existing test system. Differences are inevitable – a plan needs to be developed to address the questions that may arise about which system is correct.

Main presenter:

James Campbell began his career in test and measurement by developing signal processing and numerical analysis functions for ASYST, which once was a competitor to LabVIEW. He co-founded Viewpoint Systems in 1993 to provide custom test systems to manufacturers and is now president. Viewpoint designs and builds test systems from new designs to upgrading obsolete systems. Jim has a BS in physics from Bucknell University and an MSEE and PhD from the University of Rochester.

Guest Speaker:

Samuel Sanzone began his career performing Research and Development Reliability Testing of specialized military aircraft antenna systems for various DoD Contractors and has spent several years developing complex test systems in areas of advanced R&D and also manufacturing for military, commercial and satellite industries. He is currently a Project Manager and Lead Engineer at GE Energy Connections. Sam has worked at GE since 2005 managing and leading multiple field services engineering projects and has a BS in Electrical Engineering Technology from Rochester Institute of Technology.
