Software upgrades for informed decision making

September 17th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT, Articles: Vector



National Instruments (NI) recently announced LabView 2014 system design software, the heart of the NI platform, featuring upgrades to help users acquire, analyse and visualise data sets to make informed decisions fast. LabView 2014 standardises the way users interact with hardware through reuse of the same code and engineering processes across systems, which scales applications for the future. This saves time and money as technology advances, requirements evolve and time-to-market pressure increases. Using LabView and CompactRIO hardware from NI enabled one of the largest municipal distribution utilities in North America to implement decentralised and distributed solutions at lower deployment costs with reduced risk and time to market. This solution allows the customer to acquire, analyse and visualise data to prioritise projects which improve grid stability and optimise growth management.
