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).
The chemists ran the latest program and there were no issues with the program.
However, a handful of bad things happened, not related to either my hardware or your program and yet everything worked out just fine.
Under normal circumstances, there would have been a “bust run”. Because of the ease of switching to manual operation and the ability to exit the program from manual and still get a printout, we made life MUCH easier for the chemists and the manager.
This is a good thing. I don’t think I would have added (or could have added) these features with a different programmer.
The culture you and I and Joe have created (and let’s not forget the guy paying the bills) accomplished something very good.
Trust, flexibility, experience and an appreciation of future consequences for robust programs accomplished something that might not be noticed. Each of us needs to recognize this for what it is. This will pay us back over and over. More specifically, Today’s mishap could have cost the firm over $100K. This “$100K” savings will never appear on a P&L but needs to be recognized for what it is. Robust programming with seasoned engineers working on the right project will pay off.
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.
Our company has worked with Delacor since Fall 2015. I’ve been impressed with many aspects of their work. First, Delacor has helped us design, debug and test many of our electronics. Luis has very good skills in analog electronics and has improved many of our boards. Further, Delacor has helped us in Design Reviews for schematics and layouts. Then, when the boards were made, they tested them extensively and with excellent documentation and careful technique, yielding terrific and informative measurements. Delacor provides a very organized approach, making their contributions even more visible and valuable. This organization carries over into the design of test plans, procedures and test fixtures for manufacturing testing. Lastly, the work ethic at Delacor is very strong, and they committed to our project and worked nights and weekends to ensure we met several deadlines and solved some vexing problems. Overall, I give Delacor a very strong recommendation. You will be glad you chose to work with them.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We have used the LabVIEW consulting services of Fabiola De la Cueva of Delacor for over a year. There are many good things I can say about our experiences with her. Her years as a LabVIEW architect, champion, trainer and support specialist were immediately evident in her level of understanding of our complex issues—either in handling legacy code(!) or starting a fresh project or training. She is well informed of third party applications that can make coding more efficient and robust. Fabiola is a true professional. She is extremely reliable, responsible, and flexible. She returns phone calls and emails quickly in spite of being extremely busy. When unavailable, she will let you know in advance. She is a pleasure to work with.
