About WATS

WATS is a Manufacturing Intelligence solution that helps electronics companies of any size in industries such as aerospace and defense, industrial and consumer electronics, automotive and healthcare. It gives transparent, multi-context insight into yield metrics, frequent test and repair failures, or statistical parameters via actionable analytics and dashboards. So that you can focus your efforts on the production inefficiencies that are hurting you the most. In addition, WATS helps you streamline error-prone processes such as global software and firmware distribution, serial number and MAC address allocation, and maintenance management of your test assets.

Operating on Microsoft Azure cloud servers, the application automatically collects and converts any type of test and repair data to generate performance reports. And features native and API connectivity to applications such as Power BI for integration to Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence architectures.

With the WATS mobile application, enterprises can view unit under test (UUT) reports and quickly access the full test history of products from multiple manufacturing sites. It comes with an administrative dashboard, which lets users analyze various test stations, rolled throughputs, revisions, or products to determine key performance indicators (KPIs) and monitor them using reports. Moreover, operators can utilize repair reports, which include image attachments, relevant comments, and failure statistics, to assess parameters such as part numbers, component references, and more.

Organizations can use the WATS workflow module to specify conditional logic for determining valid manufacturing stages for products. It enables professionals to store asset details in a centralized database, receive automated notifications for predefined scenarios, and conduct manual inspections through a graphically designed test flow.

SkyWATS allowed us to perform R&R comparisons of test stations in a fast and efficient manner and immediately highlighted an issue with a slight mismatch in performance which we were able to rectify (and verify the fix) with minimal downtime. I've used this product for over 10 years because I trust it and the team behind it.

Pros

Provides an almost "codeless" solution for those looking to quickly store test data from TestStand / LabVIEW. The data that is stored is then able to be reviewed and analyzed quickly allowing us to respond to product yield or performance issues in a proactive manner. Critical for any complex high volume test solution.

Cons

Inability to define (or add) custom queries or reports.

Overall, using WATS is a great experience. We are able to look at specific data and understand how our production is affected, good or bad. We also use WATS to collect test reports on individual PCB's as well as completed products, this gives us great transparency over our production floor.

Pros

Since switching to WATS, the data collection and collation has helped our production teams to truly understand some of the issues we were having. This helped our teams to focus on changes that helped with our assembly and test areas.

Cons

Integrating with some of the other software platforms we already had in place was difficult at first and was a bit much having multiple resources giving us, effectively, the same information. However, once that was streamlined, it has become a vital tool.

We are using Skywats for SPC and analyse test yield, quantity tested per day/week and to improve our process, test benches and test softwares.
This tool is very powerfull and give us quickly and easily, a lot of precious informations we took a lot of time to find before.

Pros

Easy to use and for looking information.
Great for SPC analysis and be proactive for production support.
Give us key parameters (yield, top 10 failures...) to improve our test bench and test software.

Cons

Need training and practice to understand and find informations we are looking for.

be able to have the overview of the weekly/daily first pass yield, make it easier to target the highest failing test step in the manufacturing test.

Pros

very easy to bring the statistics for the period that the user is interested in. it gives graphic view for the measurements in the manufacturing , highlights the highest failing steps with failing rate.

Cons

it needed to preload the sequence model in TestStand back when I was using it. If it can be a hot plug app that can be merge in after the test development, it'll be great!

So far the skyWATS have reduced our problem solving processs' lead time signifcantly and the available data with complete test history immediately shows the proble as it is now and how it is comparable to previous tests

Pros

The level of automation to the test data management, easiness of cloud based service, no need to maintain tools

Cons

Sometimes it feels that you have almost too much alternative approaches to get needed results so it's bit easy to lost in the GUI.
