Crane Aerospace and Electronics
design and manufacturing of critical systems and components for aerospace, defense, and space


“BlackBelt not only provides instant insights into our complex product performance, but also has streamlined our manual workflows with Paperless Manufacturing. This has achieved a new level of visibility into our supply chain and, with a hybrid cloud solution, provides transparency to our customers beyond compliance. This is saving us hundreds of man hours and servicing our customers better. “

-Senior Test Engineer


  • Yield issues with a lack of visibility into the factors contributing to yield variations
  • Need to aggregate data from multiple ATE systems and paper-based processes for compliance and performance insight
  • Test station verification/validation and efficiency issues
  • Retest issues without visibility into the cause of retest
  • Need for ITAR-compliant data security


  • Implementation of stock and custom adapters to capture and normalize disparate ATE data
  • Support high-volume (30k plus forms in 6 months) manual data capture via Paperless Manufacturing
  • Developed a Retest report (now in BlackBelt for all customers) to show retest metrics
  • Use of the Limit Simulation report to gauge how adherence to internally developed control limits were affecting overall yield


  • Retest Reports accurately reported the performance of different fixtures, proving the case to implement new fixtures to increase yield and efficiency
  • One-click proof to their customer to receive clearance to use customer-set spec limits instead of internally-set spec limits , positively impacting yield
  • Visibility into product performance and yield for full manufacturing site
