Test economics: Getting to the bottom line

National Instruments releases an “Automated Test Outlook” at the beginning of each year.  The document is described as a comprehensive view of key technologies and methodologies impacting the test and measurement industry, and a review and link can be found here.  It is organized into five sections: business strategy, architecture, computing, software, and I/O.  I had the pleasure of discussing the report with Luke Schreier, a senior manager for the automated test group at National Instruments.

While NI made interesting choices for all the trends, I’d like to highlight the business strategy section, and its focus on test economics.  I think it provokes introspection that can be of almost immediate use to test departments.  To read my analysis, go to the complete blog post here.
