Work Diagnostics

Work Diagnostics is a part of the Securaze Work software program designed for testing the functionality of various parts of a technical device. The diagnosis improves and enriched reports and the authenticity of Securaze products and helps in the efficient and thorough classification of reusable and resalable items. With Work Diagnose, you have a detailed overview of your assets and can make projections of potential revenue when considering what to repair and sell or dispose of. Customers then buying these used items receive a certificate confirming the status of the equipment, adding value and making it more trustworthy.

The diagnosis can be run automatically or manually after Work boots up on a device, depending on which tests you want to run. Tests of RAM, battery, motherboard, Bluetooth and WiFi are performed automatically in the background and do not require any further attention from the operator once started. When the tests have been completed, the user receives a pop-up window with information about their completion and whether any errors occurred. USB, screen, webcam, keyboard and mouse are tested manually and require the user's intervention.

USB ports are tested by connecting a device in order to list all detected ports. When testing the screen, the first thing to do is to select a test type, as shown in the picture below, and afterwards the screen changes colors from red, to green, to blue, to black and white squares, to white only, to black only, and then back to screen displays. In case of screen problems, the part of the screen being damaged can then be selected.

The DoD specification was set long ago, when rotating magnetic media hard drives ruled the IT world. To erase these drives, overwriting all data with zeros or random patterns - whatever the standard offered - was enough. But the world changed and entered the age of digitalization, and with it came new hard drives like SSDs (solid state drives).
