One of the most efficient ways to shorten development time is through code reuse. By taking advantage of existing code, whether it has already been written or is part of a resource library, developers and domain experts can focus on their applications rather than committing valuable time and resources to programming.
Configuring different devices so that you can begin programming your system is often more time consuming than the function you’re creating the application to perform in the first place. LabVIEW can span your entire hardware array and across multiple instrumentation types, ranging from data acquisition devices to field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
LabVIEW is an ideal platform for prototyping, designing, and deploying high-quality products to market fast. You can use one development environment to quickly iterate on your embedded hardware and software designs and then reuse the best parts in a final product.
Creating a new robot starts with defining functionality using whiteboards and block diagrams. LabVIEW removes the need to abstract those into procedural code. Your whiteboard diagram becomes your code. Also, you have all of the functions at your fingertips to easily deal with the complex web of sensors, multiple-linked actuators, and dynamic real-time control.
The complexity of products that engineers need to test is increasing rapidly. Markets are demanding improved quality with additional features. LabVIEW reduces the time to test these products by helping you develop a flexible and efficient system that synchronizes multiple measurements and analysis within your software. This results in faster inspection times across I/O.
The LabVIEW development environment provides the ability to build programs graphically by using intuitive icons and wires that resemble a flowchart. Because LabVIEW requires you to base the structure of the program around the flow of data, you are encouraged to think in terms of the problem you need to solve as well as conceptualize your application in a parallel view and not sequential.
