What’s in a name? Part # 1; Accurate

This is the 1st segment to our ATTA acronym series. Continue to follow along to see what we stand for!

What’s in a name? A name is a powerful tool to define and shape one of the many adventures life brings. This can be from adding a new pet to the family, giving birth, or even choosing a name for that new car. This is especially true when it comes to naming and branding the business one is building – it’s a passion, after all!

So why was Accurate Technology and Test Automation LLC chosen? It’s a mouthful, I know. You can just call us ATTA though; think of it as the nickname of that slightly crazy person everyone needs in their life. So let’s break down each of these words over the next few articles and decide what they mean for you.

#1 Accurate:

When we say “accurate” to what exactly are we referring? Is this just a buzz-word that makes you and your customers feel good or is there something behind it?  Let’s go to our favorite search engine and type in “accurate definition”. What do we find? I’m guessing something to the effect of “(of information, measurements, statistics, etc.) correct in all details; exact.”. Exact in reference to what? In my experience, this has been the source of a lot of confusion in the industry. This is why we have international standards today that need to be followed with great intention; It ensures that when we say something is 10 mm we can say so with confidence.

Trusting your data all starts with trusting your measurement devices. We need to understand multiple disciplines when it comes to measuring any object or signal. Measurement automation is another part of what we do and this is a very specific discipline. Measurement automation is one step in reducing human error, therefore making our testing more accurate and exact.
