Testing Takes Time… and Time Is Money
The Sente Group Inc.
For high-tech electronics companies, such as General Dynamics Land Systems, testing is indispensable to success. Engineering personnel spend significant amounts of time and money in test design, test execution and test-equipment procurement.
Headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, GDLS employs more than 7,400 people who design, manufacture, and support land and amphibious combat systems for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps and allied nations.
Few defense contractors see the effect that their testing function has on profitability, time-to-market and engineering productivity. Even fewer have the practices, tools and people it takes to implement plans that produce measurable, sustainable results, which is why GDLS embarked on a program known as test resource management (TRM).
