ArtemiS SUITE 16: Revolution in Test Automation

Since its introduction, HEAD acoustics’ ArtemiS SUITE has been the most versatile and efficient software for structural dynamics and acoustic analyses. The modular software platform for measuring and analyzing sound and vibrations helps optimize product sounds and environmental noise. It combines powerful tools in a standardized software environment that allows its users to master tasks in any field of structural and acoustic measurements and analyses with ease and extremely efficiently.

Perfected automation and standardized testing

With the ArtemiS SUITE release 16.0, we have simplified analyses and reports and perfected the workflows and usability – especially for users who deal with repetitive tasks, for example, dyno-/validation measurements, product optimization, and benchmarking. With the ArtemiS SUITE modules for automated (APR 050 Automation Project) and standardized tests (APR 220 Standardized Test Project), they now experience unrivaled possibilities and workflows that make even the most complex tasks seem easy. Add in receiving your results immediately after a measurement and the ultra-convenient One-Click-Report, and you’re set for all possible tasks.

Real-life example

The following videos show how quickly you can set up and configure a project and create a report, data viewer, or Single-Value Table using the APR 050 Automation Project. You can find the demo files download below (only usable with ArtemiS SUITE).

The first video shows a typical measurement task technicicans and engineers are working on using the APR 010 Pool Project

The second video shows the same measurement task but using the APR 050 Automation Project

The comparison in our third video shows how much faster you can complete the task in the APR 050 Automation Project for repetitive tasks once configured. 

The following three videos show tips and tricks for using the APR 050 Automation Project as a black box to give it to your colleague with the same task, creating variables that can set parameters globally for all your sequences, and using sequence bundles to understand better and maintain large automation tasks.

Use case comparison

While you can use all ArtemiS SUITE Projects for virtually any task, we have compiled an overview of typical work steps to help you quickly determine which project—Automation, Standardized Test, or Pool—is most suitable for your use case.

Automation Project Standardized Test Project Pool Project
Test run size (typical) <= 20 recordings >20 recordings Not recommended for test campaigns
Data acquisition Manual Task-list-based: Just follow the instructions given by the recorder template (naming, documentation, and detailed measurement parameters) Manual
Recorder settings Similar configuration for all recordings Pre-configurable for each single recording Similar configuration for all recordings
Analysis (typical) <= 15 different analysis sequences (channel or recording specific) > 15 analysis sequences, highly specific for each recording and channel Manual selection for each recording (Cross Product Logic)
Reporting Small or mid-size reports Large reports Small reports
Data organization Not defined; depends on the customer Automatic data organization and structure. A folder with recordings and fixed filenames that should be analyzed and reported Not defined; depends on the customer
Input data Any kind of time and frequency-based data Any kind of time and frequency-based data Time data (HDF, DAT, or ATFX)
Process requirements Medium Very high Not needed
Flexibility + - +++
Focus applications Daily work and test campaigns Large test campaigns Development and troubleshooting


With ArtemiS SUITE 16.0, automated and standardized testing becomes even easier and more efficient. The streamlined workflow increases usability and makes ArtemiS SUITE the best option for dealing with repetitive tasks. While the Automation Project offers a high degree of freedom, the Standardized Test Project is more strongly guided, making it easier to set up and carry out but also more rigid regarding its options.

The Pool Project is ideal if you are looking for conspicuous noises and want to work with the time data in a highly flexible way. The Automation Project is ideal if you want to analyze recurring measurement tasks in the same way automatically. The Standardized Test Project makes it easy for you to carry out a measurement campaign with a standardized test procedure and documentation and to receive a standardized report.
