Importance of Test and Measurement
Tests/test and measurement, primarily performed for analysis, creation, validation, and verification, is an important part of the design and development process for electronic and mechanical systems and products. The goal is to make sure that such electronic and mechanical systems meet various standards in all types of working conditions including real-time environments.
The broad process of test and measurement (done to ensure performance, reliability, safety, quality, comfort, and appearance) allows manufacturers to resolve potential problems of a product model before it goes into production and out into the hands of customers.
As an example, a car must be tested to meet technical and safety specifications by running it through a series of tests. If it does not perform as expected it may need to be re-engineered or re-worked or re-designed as it is much more cost-efficient to eliminate a problem before high-volume mass production than to discover problems and trying to fix them afterward.
