The shortening of development lead times and faster information flows will make counter seasonal field tests increasingly attractive. Australia and New Zealand are excellent locations for extreme climate field testing because of: low traffic densities, favorable exchange rates, a secure political system and diverse road and weather conditions.

Shortening product design times and the move toward computer design & analysis is making field testing more focused, more time critical and more likely to involve testing locations with climates that fit the testing timetable, rather than vice-versa.

Timely delivery of data from remote field testing is becoming more critical. Increasing focus on employees Occupational Heath & Safety issues accentuates the need for diligent project management of testing expeditions. Test-Trak can help project manage testing programmes in Australia and New Zealand.
