Registration & Lunch
13:00 – 13:30
Introduction to the Software Development Life Cycle
David Maidman, Control Software Solutions
The aim of a Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is to describe the steps necessary to develop software applications, from initial concept through to release and maintenance.
There are many SDLC models, each with advantages and disadvantages; however, a well implemented and well managed SDLC can help to produce software that is high quality, testable, readable, scalable and maintainable.
In this presentation, David will give a brief introduction to SDLCs, with specific focus on the V model. This will form an introduction to a series of presentations that will cover each of the phases within the V model SDLC.
David is a Senior Systems Engineer at Control Software Solutions, who has been working with LabVIEW since 1998 and is CLA certified.
Specialising in developing software for measurement and control systems, David has worked in many sectors; including manufacturing, nuclear, medical device and aerospace.
His case study on a creating a continuously running seal-testing rig was a finalist in the 2012 NI Graphical System Design awards.
13:30 – 14:15
Louise Bonner, Control Software Solutions
The requirements management process is an important part of the Software Development Life Cycle; however, it is often overlooked or poorly executed. A well written requirements document ensures everyone agrees what needs to be done, and provides a reference to design, implement, and test the software.
In this presentation Louise will look at the requirements manage process including how to write requirements, requirement traceability, and testing requirements. She will also look at how requirements can be managed when software is developed as part of an iterative process.
Louise is a Senior Systems Engineer at Control Software Solutions, who has been working with LabVIEW since 2012 and is CLA and CTA certified.
Specialising in developing bespoke test and automation systems, Louise has worked in many sectors; including manufacturing, military and aerospace programs.
Her case study on a system to monitor home energy efficiency was a finalist in the 2014 NI Impact awards, and she has continued to take an interest in using LabVIEW in connected devices and ‘Internet of Things’ applications.
14:15 – 14:30
Coffee Break & Networking
14:30 – 15:15
User Events – the wort named feature in LabVIEW?
John Medland, University of Manchester
In spite of their name, User Events provide many useful features that go way beyond simulating user interaction with the front panel.
This talk takes a look at how User Events can be a very handy tool for all sorts of messaging use cases.
John is an electronic engineering and CLA who enjoys building tools for scientific discovery and loves the chance to collaborate, share his knowledge and learn something new.
