    Success

    Solving complex problems through simple elegant solutions is what drives us. We here at Good Automation love our craft and you will soon discover why. Here are a few words from our Customers:

    “Ab and Good Automation were great to work with. Ab is the type of person who does not let any challenge get in the way of success. For him, there is always a way. His energy and drive are among the strongest that I have ever encountered.”

    Dir, Product Development @ Medical Device Startup

    “Ab and the team at Good Automation supported Cochlear in our effort to streamline SOPs and automate our test system verification activities. They have in-depth knowledge of FDA test requirements, especially around 21 CFR Parts 11 and 820. The design and verification strategy developed with Good Automation has resulted in the delivery of more impactful test solutions.”

    Mgr, Test System Development @ Class III Medical Device Company

    “We are extremely happy with our experience with Good Automation.  Their professionalism and dedication is way above our expectations. We plan to continue our relationship for a long time to come.”

    Sr. Mgr @ Public Internet of Things Company

    “As a lead project scientist, I have worked closely with the Good Automation team to develop an automated test system for my research group.  Good Automation has been a real asset to the project.  They work very hard to understand our automation problem, outline the tasking, and work to the project scope, schedule and cost constraints.  I have found their entire staff to be very professional and provide the highest level of support possible.  I plan on continuing to use Good Automation as my LabVIEW and TestStand developers as future projects arise.”

    GOOD Case Studies

    Case Study 1: Medical Device Company
    Problem Test systems validation and revalidation activities were becoming prohibitively expensive
    Solution Delivered custom training to test engineering, quality assurance, and IT staff. Consulted on SOPs and work instructions to remove inefficiencies and streamline the test systems validation process. Automated key steps in the test systems VnV process. Drafted validation protocols for library of core software modules.
    Result Better process and 50% improvement in test team efficiency.
    Case Study 2: Medical Device Company
    Problem FDA warning letter
    Solution Trained test engineering and regulatory affairs staff on software validation and test method validation. Authored a LabVIEW work instruction to create a set of best practices that can be used by developers across the test organization. Led effort to remediate an existing test system.
    Result Knowledgeable staff and cleaner more standardized code allowing for objective standard for reviewing LabVIEW source code. Clean set of remediated documentation for that specific test system and one less item to worry about during the next FDA inspection.
    Case Study 3: Aerospace / Defense Company
    Problem Needed automated fatigue test systems for all the test fixtures of helicopter parts in a plant
    Solution Developed deterministic, real-time embedded software. Integrated open-loop and closed-loop control algorithms. Integrated identification algorithm to model different tests.
    Result Resolved critical technical challenges that stopped the plant from running tests. Unlocked the potential of millions of dollars of hardware equipment investment.
    Case Study 4: Oil and Gas Company
    Problem Needed a high-level plan and strategy for automating testing in R&D with a roadmap toward deploying tests to manufacturing
    Solution Created a test software framework and hardware abstraction layer and self-paced training documentation
    Result Internal time to market has been significantly improved on several R&D testing efforts. Software was adopted by manufacturing team ahead of schedule and successfully implemented with minimal additional training. R&D was able to capture a critical market opportunity that would have been otherwise impossible.
