Why LCOD? LCOD is just an acronym. It provides a convenient label that encompasses what we are trying to get across. So let's start with a statement. In our opinion Component Oriented Design (COD) is the best approach for developing software in LabVIEW.

COD is applicable to all software design, and certainly the same problems present themselves when beginning the design process—irrespective of the chosen language that will be used to express the design. The problem we have to solve is to take the requirements for a system and create the application. This book is about using LabVIEW to express the design, and that design being a component oriented approach, hence LCOD. So why use components at ...
