Just been in a meeting with our customer, hammering out costs for a piece of test equipment that we intend to develop. Based the estimate on project which was developed in LabVIEW v3.0 - even though new project will use V7.0. The question was asked by the customer - "yes, but how much more efficient will the software development be now that we are upgrading to V7.0". This was a curveball I wasn't expecting, and I am frantically looking for a quantifiable metric with which to respond.
Any help would be appreciated. I've been in contact with NI and they will get back to me, but I suspect their reply will be "sales pitch" based, and probably a little rose tinted. I was after some more meaty figures from the guys who use it (I've never used LabVIEW before)
