Our group was looking to improve our current LabVIEW development practices. We wanted to implement an architecture that would lend itself to easy scalability and modularity. In addition, we wanted the ability to scale the development team with the additional help of outside consultants.
When choosing the architecture, we had decided on the Actor Framework; that changed with the release of the Delacor DQMH. After comparing the two frameworks, we decided that the Delacor DQMH would serve our team best in achieving our goals. After deciding to use the DQMH, we wanted to create a development environment that would move the developers from an individual development environment to a team development environment.
Fabiola and the group at Delacor were fantastic. They spoke to every developer and the customers that they served and evaluated our current development practices. After the evaluation, they provided a thermometer visualizing the health of development practices. In addition, they also provided development guidelines to be used by our team and custom tools to assist with performing code reviews and source code control. Immediately, we experienced success when following the suggested guidelines. This became apparent with the onboarding of a new hire with no LabVIEW development experience. Using the DQMH as an integral component in the new architecture, and following the new development practices, the new hire is rapidly developing an automated test system for a new product line with reusable components. The quality of code developed for this project far exceeds any prior application that was developed by our experienced LabVIEW developers.
In the end, Fabiola is outstanding, and I would like to state that Delacor’s competency far exceeded my expectations and I look forward to using their services in future endeavors. Without their services, we would not have made the rapid advances (6 months) in our development framework (DQMH), test architecture (DQMH and TestStand), and development practices (guidelines, code review and source control).Michael Howard
Fabiola De La Cueva’s performance working as an engineering consultant for us proved that she will be a valuable addition to any company. I have known Fabiola for almost two years in my capacity as Research and Product Development Engineer. Fabiola worked for me on various projects as an engineering consultant, and based on her work, I would rank her as one of the best consultants we have ever had. Fabiola distinguished herself by consistently responding brilliantly to my requests for writing physics based mechanical engineering simulation software. Fabiola is highly intelligent, organized, hard working and has excellent analytical and communication skills. If her performance in our company is a good indication of how she would perform in yours, she would be an extremely positive asset to your company. I only wish that I had the pleasure of working with more people with her talent and superior work ethics.G.H.
Fabiola is a talented engineer with a passion for customer service and exceeding expectations on every job she’s worked on. Her energetic and “can do” approach to challenging projects have earned her the highest respect of our clients. I would not hesitate to hire Fabiola again on any LabVIEW or system integration project, and consider her an amazing person all around!Jeffrey Travis
Fabiola is a talented and very experienced LabVIEW architect. I worked closely with her for a year on a large project, which involved helping us clarify our requirements, building a suite of LabVIEW VIs, developing a runtime application in LabVIEW, and helping to define an API to our hardware device. All of this was also extensively documented. Fabiola did a first class job of the implementation and also managed several other engineers on the project through her company Delacor. In addition Fabiola developed an emulator for our hardware device and a test system which enable us to conduct lab tests for production and other R&D projects. She also provided training for our internal team and a group of interns who were using the VIs and test system.
Fabiola is extremely competent and also very personable. She delivers. She works very well remotely with our extended team of UX, QA, and other engineers. I recommend her highly.Richard Mander
I have worked on the design, development and testing of internal combustion engines for over 40 years, and in that time I have worked with many excellent professionals in the data acquisition field. I recently had occasion to work with Fabiola de la Cueva, an independent professional expert in LabView data acquisition software. Under very trying conditions, and without any previous knowledge of the development of the test system, she was able to return my test cell to full capability in very short time. Of particular value in this effort was Fabiola’s knowledge of systems outside the LabVIEW domain.J.M.
Fabiola’s broad based skill’s helped modernize our university research laboratory. In order to optimally investigate Human Performance, we needed to synchronize our analytical equipment so that sophisticated data were collected and stored in comprehensive data files. Fabiola accomplished this daunting task and in the process help us develop more creative ways to conduct research. In addition to her expert skills in LabVIEW, Fabiola’s high level of intelligence and common sense earned her a pivotal technical role on our laboratory. She proved to be an energetic and creative member of our research team who repeatedly and promptly solved complex technical problems with good humor and professionalism.Ed Coyle, Ph.D.
