  52. 52. Business Results Achieved <ul><li>Flexibility. With CHARMS IO UT can easily add and remove devices in the field and move configuration between controllers without being limited by where wires are terminated. </li></ul><ul><li>Supporting multiple projects. It will be much easier to run parallel tests. The improved control room layout makes it much easier for operators to run their portion of the tests. </li></ul><ul><li>More data. Upgraded servers makes it easier to hold on to more data. </li></ul>
  53. 53. Summary <ul><li>CHARMS IO provides UT with considerable project flexibility. The new control room layout and upgraded servers provides UT with much a better environment to run concurrent projects, collect data, and provide reports for their customers. </li></ul><ul><li>We appreciate you taking the time to attend our session. We would like feedback on the presentation or your own experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Questions? </li></ul>
