 Workflow Manager streamlines
 repetitive sound and vibration testing 





Noise and vibration measurement specialist, Bruel and Kjaer has
introduced WorkFlow Manager Type 7756, a new tool that helps to
streamline and organise repetitive sound and vibration tests
performed with the company's PULSETM multi-analyser system.

Designed for use in busy test cell environments, the main features of
WorkFlow Manager are guidance and assistance in data storage,
efficient test programme administration and structured test object
documentation.

Output is available as annotated PULSE formatted data files with
extended file headers containing user-selected information. The unique
electronic test plan facility provides a highly efficient and intuitive means
of ordering and documenting tests while automated reporting is available
via the PULSE report organiser.

Additional features include structured archiving of test data and
predefined test set-ups (PULSE Projects), creation and display of
reference curves for pass-fail criteria, streamlined testing with fast
switching between different types of test, storage of test data and
test documentation in a single, open format data file and high visibility
overload status monitoring. The WorkFlow Manager also links PULSE
with other Microsoft Windows-based applications for further data
display or post-processing.

Effectively, WorkFlow Manager transforms PULSE into a "test suite"
supporting all stages of the test process from the test cell to the desktop.
The system's simple measurement data storage and retrieval make
it particularly suitable for office network environments. Additional
benefits include high test cell utilisation due to minimal measurement
set up times and rapid switching between predefined measurement
setups and real-time assessment of product performance using
benchmark data (reference curves).
