Python made a rather large splash at NIWeek 2018. It got a number of mentions in various settings, the most notable of which was Collin Draughon's talk "Automating Measurements with Python." LabVIEW 2018's Python Node makes it very straight-forward to call a simple Python script from within LabVIEW. You set up the Python environment, invoke the Python Node, and then tear down the environment when you're done.
Summary: Test engineers typically add manual-control screens to LabVIEW applications. While it would be helpful to repetitively execute varying parts of those manual-control screens, LabVIEW is not optimal for dynamic scripting, or on-the-fly sequencing with flow control. (Imagine editing the source code of Excel each time you wanted to create a macro.) And while Python is built for scripting, it requires advanced custom coding to interface with LabVIEW.
Wineman Technology, Inc., a leading test solutions company, today announced that its CANalytics software was named the National Instruments LabVIEW Tools Network Application Enablement Product of the Year award winner. The company was also honored with the NI Alliance Partner Network Gold Level Outstanding Technical Resources award. NI presented these awards today at NIWeek, the annual conference for its Alliance Partners and customers, held May 22-25 in Austin, Texas.
In this on-demand webinar, our engineer walks you through Wineman Technology’s TestTracker test system management software, where multiple pieces of test software can be combined into a single software platform where test engineers can perform the following functions:
We're excited to announce our new CANalytics software. The new platform provides an interface to maximize the benefits of CAN bus hardware, particularly for automotive and aerospace applications where it provides a durable network that supports communication between multiple electronic control units (ECUs).
SAGINAW, Mich. -- December 6, 2016 – Wineman Technology, Inc., a leading test solutions company, today announced its new CANalytics software.

Our TestTracker Data Management Software is a test lab management tool for managers, product engineers and test engineers who rely on efficient and accurate testing in R&D. It manages and prioritizes incoming requests, assigns tests, delegates those tests to the appropriate testers, collects streamlined data, and sends results to the necessary stakeholders -- all from a central location.
Today, test cells are used throughout the product development process to replicate real-world environments for individual components, systems of components, or complete systems to troubleshoot issues before placing a completed product in the field or into the hands of customers. Oftentimes, test, manufacturing, and R&D engineers are challenged with rapidly developing, configuring, and deploying complex control systems for these test cells. To be successful no matter how complex the application is, engineers need development tools that are easy to use, highly configurable, and platform independent.
