Where LabVIEW is used

LabVIEW is used most by companies that manufacture hardware of some sort, specifically in the groups responsible for testing that the product was designed correctly and that the product works before leaving the factory.  It’s also used in research (i.e. government labs and universities) that use LabVIEW to facilitate their experiments.  LabVIEW is used for other purposes as well (see What is LabVIEW used for).  If you really just want to know what LabVIEW is, see our article What is LabVIEW? – A developer’s perspective.

LabVIEW is used across many industry verticals within the manufacturing realm, including:

Who Uses LabVIEW

These engineers often have obvious titles like:

  • Test Engineer
  • Manufacturing Test Engineer

  • Validation Engineer

But, also often have titles that you’d have a hard time guessing that they’d be involved in test, such as:

  • Electrical Engineer
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Manufacturing Engineer
  • Engineering Manager
