LabVIEW Consultancy for Product Development

​Product development is a different experience from many LabVIEW projects. It isn't enough to make it work.

If products are hard to use or appear to be of low quality, it can hit you in where it hurts with reduced sales and increased support and sales costs.

As LabVIEW is also typically used in high-value products, many sales will come with requests for new features. If your code and development practices aren't up to scratch, it can be hard to keep up with these requests (and the competition).

Take great design, code and software engineering, and life gets easier. Customers are excited to use great products that solve their problems. You can delight them (and outpace your competition) by investing your engineering time into features they really want.

How Can An External Expert Help?

How can a consultant like me help? 

I can work with you at critical times and bring experience from multiple products and industries to bear on your project.

This experience can augment your team to make:

  • Design decisions that make your development easier and faster. Therefore getting more features out in less time.
  • Quick proofs of technologies and designs without diverting people from delivering on your core products.
  • Software engineering processes that maintain quality and automate drudgery out of your developers day.

For your engineering team, sound design and effective processes can pay like compound interest, accelerating their development and letting them focus on real customer problems.

We needed to bring our durability test equipment up to date but were concerned about meeting all of the existing and new requirements.

Wiresmith Technology was able to produce a new application with a user interface that is easy to use which means our operators are quicker to set up the tests. James was friendly and willing to discuss all of the options with us to find the best way forward. We would happily recommend them for future work.

We deliberately looked for a small but technically very strong company who we knew would be able to work flexibly with us.

The close and personal relationship was important as it allowed us the agility that a larger company would never have been able to match. Also we loved the can-do attitude. Within 30 seconds of the first call, we knew Wiresmith were exactly what we needed

Communication was a concern when we hired a consultant on our FPGA project however Wiresmith Technology were extremely responsive and supportive. They quickly and fully understood our needs and were flexible when problems arose, finding ways or solutions to get the job done. The deliverable were completed on time which allowed us to demonstrate our technology concept. Even after this James provided technical support until we were happy with the system. We would absolutely recommend them as a reliable, flexible and friendly partner.

Wiresmith Technology provided an easy working relationship with good feedback on ideas and prompt turnaround times on development. They tracked the work backlog effectively allowing the correct items to be prioritised without losing sight of additional ideas and features.

The complete hardware and software packages offered by NI in conjunction with Wiresmith Technology has increased test efficiency and accuracy. It has also given Lontra the ability to further develop and optimise data analysis simulation techniques for future product design.

​We can customise our work to you but here are some examples of how we can get you some of the gains:

  • System Design: A good design can make things easier for the life of the project. I can add experience at this crucial stage to set off on the right path.
  • Initial Development: Perhaps you don't have a development team yet, but you know what you need. I can help you get initial product versions out before investing in hiring and developing an internal team.
  • System Review: Does development seem to get slower every week? Working on bad code can feel like wading through treacle. I can review your system and provide recommendations for improvement.
  • Process Review and Improvements to Quality Systems: If your engineers are spending more time on bugs than new features, you probably have a quality problem. I can work with your team to introduce new software engineering processes to turn the tide in the war on bugs and get higher quality software to your customers.

Why Wiresmith?

  • ​A personal experience with direct communication with a LabVIEW Expert (me!)
  • I treat every project as a product, Focusing on building flexible, reliable and trustworthy software. This approach has paid off in developing multiple products for customers across a variety of industries as well as internal projects for them (which are like my products).
  • I do not believe that bugs are inevitable in LabVIEW (or any software). I have long been an advocate in the LabVIEW community for key quality processes like unit testing and continuous integration.
  • When it comes to LabVIEW and National Instruments products, I'm very experienced, and that is recognised as I am a LabVIEW Champion and NI Alliance Partner. I also bring experience in adjacent technologies, helping you decide when LabVIEW isn't the right choice. With production code delivered in many languages and on many platforms, I've made these decisions before.
