Abstract

Testing is an important part in all production processes, particularly in processes such as automotive air bag manufacturing. At TRW, both production air bags and new engineering designs are tested. Because of the high volume of tests and the high volume of data which are collected during tests, automated data collection and analysis is highly desirable feature of the data acquisition software (DAS). This paper discusses TRW’s DAS and how automatic data analysis was incorporated in the DAS. In particular, a neural network is used to classify the results of the test and hence provide lab personnel with a helping hand in their disposition of the test data.
