NI Tools Network Developer Center » Creating and Managing Reusable Code in LabVIEW
In software development, creating code you can reuse has many benefits to a company and development team. Reusable code helps you bring products to market faster since you don't need to redo work you have already done. This also helps in maintaining quality across all of your applications as the same code exists throughout, making maintenance and upkeep an easier task. It can help different developers on the same team provide a consistent implementation and allows you to transfer code between developers much easier. Finally it reduces the number of software defects since fixing a bug in one place fixes code in multiple places. All of these benefits can directly lead to great cost savings for a company throughout multiple development projects.
In the following documents we talk about some best practices for developing reusable code in LabVIEW.
The material for these documents were inspired by the Creating and Maintaining Reusable Code presentation from NI Developer Education Days 2012. This presentation can be found on the User Group Resource Center
