In addition to model development, we provide the following support services to enable integration and reuse of existing models:
ISC engineers have acquired significant skills and experience in using both development environments and in many cases in the same project. We can help you reuse and integrate models to meet your application development needs.
MATLAB/Simulink has traditionally been the main tool of choice for companies involved in control projects where strong support for dynamic modelling/simulation is essential. There are a number of good reasons for this, including:
On the other hand, LabVIEW has also support for:
There are applications where one development is more suited than the other. On the other hand, there may also be applications where using both environments in the same project, either simultaneously or at different stages, would be beneficial. For example, to to suit different purposes/tasks, e.g. a quick development of algorithms in the early stages using MATLAB but real-time implementation on the actual system with LabVIEW Real-Time.
There have also been many occasions in practice where reusing an existing or legacy Simulink model in a new LabVIEW development would be the best approach.
