The system’s main goal is to increase efficiency and productivity of the test laboratory by simplifying daily tasks, reducing manual intervention to a minimum and maximizing the utilization of every test cell.
“One of our main objectives was to create a system that will simplify the lab manager´s daily tasks. With that in mind, we are convinced that STARS ENTERPRISE has the ability to significantly improve lab operations, in addition to reduce cost and overhead,” says Alex Pressl, HORIBA Global Manager of Test Automation Systems.
STARS ENTERPRISE incorporates web and mobile apps on a cloud-based platform. Each app addresses a specific problem in the testing environment and can either work completely autonomous or can be part of a fully integrated system. The system’s open interfaces and modular architecture allow for easy integration of standard and customized devices as well as agile adaptation to specific tailored needs. This permits STARS ENTERPRISE to grow with increasing and changing requirements.
STARS ENTERPRISE contributes to considerable cost savings, reduced downtime and reduction in overhead. Development engineers prominently profit from immediate and secure access to all test data, as soon as it becomes available.
The STARS ENTERPRISE Monitoring app provides the actual status of all the connected measurement equipment in the test cell. For today’s test laboratories it is most critical that all test cells and devices maintain the highest level of availability as well as measurement accuracy and consistency. Status information and measurement data can be visualized using customized displays. Faults can be indicated for immediate alert, allowing the laboratory personnel to react quickly, avoiding the waste of valuable and costly test time. The app also facilitates remote control from anywhere to any device for quick access and further analysis of a problem, even if the specialist is hundreds of miles away.
“We support companies worldwide in achieving the industry´s goal of clean mobility. We do this by providing them with excellent test and measurement systems and can now add a cutting-edge IT solution to our extensive product and service portfolio that will foster the digital transformation of our industry,” Alex Pressl stresses.
