Blue Ridge Test offers rapid design, development and deployment of automated solutions using LabVIEW and TestStand

Software

Blue Ridge Test utilizes industry standard software packages to facilitate the rapid design, development and deployment of automated test solutions.

LabVIEW

LabVIEW®, a graphical programming language from National Instruments, is the preferred programming language of Blue Ridge Test. We have over 10 years programming experience with LabVIEW. LabVIEW development environment provides tools to simplify the writing and debugging of software modules. Each VI (subroutine) is a stand alone piece of code that can be quickly validated and used for requirement tracking.

TestStand

Serving as the heart of the test stations, the TestStand test executive provides all of the common functions in test stations. Individual test modules are development in LabVIEW, LabWindows CVI, Visual Basic, Visual C++ or any language capable of compiling a DLL. TestStand can also interface to legacy code write in HTBasic.

Blue Ridge Test is able to reduce test design time as the TestStand process model allows the reuse of code for common tasks. These tasks include operator login, serial number scanning, report generation and database logging. Because TestStand is modular, the development of each test step can be independently tested and verified. TestStand also includes a procedure that allows for rapid deployment of the final solution to multiple test stations.

Requirements Gateway                               

Requirements Gateway from National Instruments is a requirements traceability solution. The software links your development and verification documents with formal requirements stored in documents and databases.  Blue Ridge Test uses Requirements Gateway to manage software development to ensure the final solution meets or exceeds all of the software requirements.

Database Tools

Blue Ridge Test can tailor your application to interface to Access, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Server and Oracle databases. TestStand can be interfaced to other databases as required.
