Merlin Analysis Server 2G
The process of measurement data evaluation is downstream to any effort of test planning. Any efforts put into test set-ups and objects are made in order to be able to predict the outcome on measurement data and thereby enable product verification.
In the meantime, another challenge appeared as measurement data became large scale. The number of files and data volume has skyrocketed. Engineers and experts in the domain are losing time and resources in manually developing and executing duplicate analysis programs, which they run only once, locally, on their client machines.
The Merlin Analysis Server 2G application offers management of reports and evaluation templates. Furthermore, it provides the workflow control for generating and executing them. The application enables your measurement data management system to register ASAM ODS server event notifications (newly imported measurement). It matches the measurements and its defined MIME type with a corresponding, predefined evaluation in order to execute it altogether.
You can perceive an evaluation as a tree-like structure incorporating calls, analysis programs and parameters.

The analysis program itself is a third-party script, run by the analysis server with the third-party’s tools, such as DIAdem, MATLAB or pure Java.
