3 Strategies for Developing Efficient LabVIEW Projects Using a Team-Based Approach

[Free White Paper]

Adding more developers to a project doesn't always increase efficiency. In fact, additional developers often create the "too many cooks in the kitchen" effect and decrease project efficiency.

This paper will teach you how to:

1.- Select a predetermined workflow with defined roles and requirements.

2.- Use a LabVIEW architecture that avoids merging changes in source control.
