I have a project which I am currently working on, wherein it requires me to test a cable with 60 pins on either side for connectivity.
The current process of testing involves 2 people using a multimeter to test each pin one after the other.The problem is , the wires within the cable can be broken at either end, or can be shorted on the same side to each other.I have already programmatically created about 2000 test cases for each side of the cable.
The solution for this is simple, there is a box kinda thing with opposite connectors and LED's on both side, the attendent who is testing connects the cable, and runs the test.There are a few status LED's that denote cable good/no good
This solution reduces the amount of time it takes to make and quality test a single cable by about 60%(calculated)
