Overall Satisfaction with National Instruments LabVIEW
We are a start-up developing novel water treatment products. To test the performance of the product, we develop in-house lab-scale automated testing systems and also pilot-scale systems to test the products off-site. For our systems, we used LabVIEW to read and write I/O, control the instruments, analyze and log systems' data.
- Fast development of systems.
- Easy integration with hardware.
- Readily available training course

Most of the time, I am using LabVIEW to develop automated controls for lab-scale and pilot-scale systems. LabVIEW is great for its graphical programming interface, which is easy to learn and understand. The program also has a lot of built-in VIs to perform different complicated I/O, data processing, controls, and graphing tasks which are extremely useful and convenient to use. My only problem with LabVIEW is how hard it is to clean up and debug the program, due to its being a graphical interface. It is hard to search for specific variables when debugging, and some of the online debugging features don't function well in real-time.
