Create a turnkey test solutions and measurement system to simplify testing of marine transmissions, and a historical database with worldwide user access.
National Instruments LabVIEW development platform, NI PXI control and instrumentation hardware, SQL Server web service interface to LabVIEW, and .NET web-based user interface to the historical database.
The assembly and test needs for marine transmissions are complicated by the variety of end user applications and options available from suppliers. For example, pleasure craft, commercial, and military applications differ greatly between manual operating modes and those governed by electronic controllers. Tracking of assembled component options and proper testing of each installed option is critical to producing and delivering the correct transmission to fit the need.
