Automate the assessment of quality and functional performance using dynamic data and metric-based decision making.
What does this tool do?
Use Shield to design metric formulations and automate signal acquisition, processing and decision making in production and laboratory settings. Dynamic signals such as sound and vibration, often accompanied by supporting data from CAN bus or other analog input channels, are collected and used to formulate pass/fail metric and associated waveforms.
In the Plant
Protect quality by deploying user-designed metrics that extract defect indicators from dynamic data. Metric formulations developed in Shield are deployed using our NVH Controller which operates at the direction of your test machine control system.
In the Lab
Standardize data acquisition hardware and computations across the organization. Shield will add dynamic signal analysis automation to your test cell control system while providing inherently self-documented source data, flexible analysis and acquisition processes, and a path towards automated archival and effective data reuse.
Closing the Loop
Shield is a platform that includes the Shield PC app for metric design, our NVH controller for acquisition and computation of Metrics, and Trove, our system for automated archival, batch processing and reporting. The investment to create big standardized data sets is amplified many times over when data is routinely reused to explore issues of design, keep pace with development, and to improve process. When the answer resides in the data history, the Shield platform will give you the tools to extract, study and report it.
