Zero-Programming for us to create your
It may take some convincing, but we can show
you how your test and measurement system can
be done without any programming. We
will help you build Phase I of your system.
you to maintain your system
Once you've seen zero-programming systems,
you will realize how easy it will be for you
to modify and maintain your own systems.
For the second phase, you will not need our
does it better
Many consulting companies choose to ignore TestStand
for one primary reason: other companies want to charge you more.
Would you pay a plumber extra to
make you custom pipe and fittings on the job?
No, you'd certainly want them to use off-the-shelf pipes
We have taken that approach and have embraced TestStand as the
off-the-shelf solution which eliminates the need to
create things like user login, sequence engines,
database storage, and
user-interfaces. Then we added libraries
of functions which allow us to complete the majority
of jobs using existing code.
The result : long-term relationships with our clients.
Customers are happier, sooner, and pay less
Using Cyth Systems and TestStand allows you
to finish sooner, experience many advanced built-in
features, and avoid creating bugs - all this for
LESS cost than the alternatives.

TestStand can save you thousands of dollars
The most common alternative to TestStand is NOT a
competing product. Instead, many companies
choose to try to save money and write a custom
application for automating simple and complex tests.
Many realize (too late) the complexity of writing a
sequence engine, and experience limitations and
delays with astronomical costs.
One company built a test
sequencer that served their manufacturing needs
by calling a fixed number of tests in a fixed
order. Writing this program took about 9 months, and experienced a
typical number of debilitating programming bugs.
The same company tried to
use borrow that program for life-testing, but the
test needed to modified to repeat hundreds of times per
day for months on end, and
often the settings needed to be changed from the
defaults used in manufacturing. Thus a variant of the
program had to be made, using two developers
for about 5 months, and the software was too complex
to ever be used.
Another company wanted a
very flexible customized program for calling
tests, and wanted to be able to change settings,
change the number of loops, and many other
features. This program took about 2 years to create
but only did about 10% of what TestStand can do.
It cost about $300,000 in programming hours over
to arrange an onsite demo.
