DMC is proud to announce that two of our engineers are recognized as Certified TestStand Architects by NI. Congratulations to Cecilia Brookshier and Steven Dusing for displaying expertise in architecting test systems based on NI TestStand.
TestStand is a flexible platform designed to make developing, debugging, and deploying test systems quick and easy. The ready-to-run test management software allows users to integrate code modules written in other programming languages to their test sequences in TestStand.
Becoming a Certified TestStand Architect (CTA) is the final step in the two-part TestStand certification process. First, candidates must achieve the status of Certified TestStand Developer (CTD). This includes having an average of 12 to 18 months of experience developing, debugging, and deploying applications in TestStand and passing a four-hour exam demonstrating best practices.
After earning the CTD, candidates are eligible to earn certification as a CTA. The Certified TestStand Architect exam verifies expertise in architecting test systems based on TestStand from high-level specifications. Certified Architects are technical leaders. They coach the developers on their team to become more efficient and to follow best practices.
"Being recognized as a TestStand Architect is the pinnacle of certification for a TestStand Developer," said DMC Project Engineer Steven Dusing. "It acknowledges an engineer's deep understanding of NI's core test executive framework and their capability to leverage it effectively. Receiving this certification will give our customers trust that we know the ins and outs of TestStand and can deliver a high-quality test executive framework that can both scale and adapt to rapidly changing business needs."
DMC and NI
One key element of a CTA is their agility at integrating LabVIEW with TestStand. DMC has developed numerous LabVIEW operator interfaces using TestStand. Combining these two platforms allows us to leverage years of investment by NI into TestStand's sequencing abilities in addition to the flexibility of LabVIEW to customize that power and tailor it to specific customer needs.
DMC has worked with National Instruments since 1997, earning recognition as an NI Alliance Member, NI Center of Excellence, NI Vision Specialty Partner, Migrations & Upgrades Partner, and a SystemLink Specialty Alliance Partner. Our experienced team of certified architects, developers, and trainers includes the most LabVIEW Certified Architects in the Midwest. Our LabVIEW solutions include test and measurement, product development, research and development, and high-tech manufacturing.
