- Quality Test Management
QTM - Quality Test Management is a remote management solution that keeps your test stations synchronized, updated, and monitors their running status. The solution ensures that your stations always have the correct test software, article configuration and firmware for your products by publishing and sending new releases to the test stations with immediate feedback.
All activities are logged in the application, making it easy to track changes, determine what has been modified, and when the change occurred on a station. All stations are connected to a central server that performs local synchronization whenever a change occurs. The central server also continuously monitors the stations and provides a live overview of their operational status.
You will define site locations and would be able to publish to all stations.
Keep Station in Sync
You get Instant feedback and visibility of software, articles and firmware.
The software log all changes and have live monitoring as a feature.
Automate your management
With QTM, you eliminate the manual and local management of your test stations.
How does QTM work?
QTM consists of two parts:
1. Web Server Application
Provides an instant overview of active client stations, sync status and package installation status.
Software distributed as zip, files, msi installers or NI packages (nipkg). Published to all station clients on a site location or individual station clients with automatic processing and installation of packages with manual action option.
Define articles and publish to a site location or individual station clients. Option to define properties such as key-values and include additional information, Bill-of-Materials (BOM) structure, label information and serial number structure. Firmware packages are assigned to articles so that the correct article configuration is available at the test stations. QTM can also be used as serial number generator.
Provides user management with different authorization levels from administrator to local station users. Accessible via the API, meaning that the same users that are configured in QTM can be used in the test program.
Option to assign different firmware to different product versions, variants, or release states.
2. Local Station Client Application
Executes as a Windows service and is always connected to the master client service and keeps packages, articles and firmware synchronized and up to date.
Monitors local status and enables required manual actions using a browser.
REST API allows test software to query QTM for required information such as: station articles (including article information, firmware, labels, serial generators, bill-of-materials structure, and test sequences), station settings and connection status to server.
REST API provides methods to check QTM master connection and synchronization to prevent problems that are caused by the network connection being lost which may result in production running without the latest changes.
Option for test software to report current test status whether station is running or not to QTM through the API.
LabVIEW driver available and Swagger API that allows QTM connection in any language.

A circuit board test system serves the vital purpose of production testing. Its role is to ensure and validate the proper functioning of all components on a circuit board (PCBA).
Any faulty or substandard circuit boards can lead to production errors, resulting in increased time and expenses associated with rework or board repairs. Thus, the testing phase holds immense significance within the manufacturing process.
You will primarily focus on LabVIEW application development, enhancing our QMAX product for hardware R&D and its integration into customer applications. You will also design hardware solutions for testing, measurement and logging. Collaboration with your colleagues across diverse industries is key, as you will oversee the entire development process and software.
