Long application development time and the problem of explaining their principles to clients led us to create the MACHINE VISION SUITE platform. How does it help us and our customers?
One of DataVision company key services is the development of applications for image analysis and production automation. For our clients, we have developed, for example, tire quality control software during production or a code scanning program placed on semi-finished car bodies.
Due to the tight production schedule, our clients need the software they want as soon as possible. In the past, the creation of image analysis applications was time-consuming (the program was written from scratch) and required special staff expertise.
During development, we had a problem explaining how the application works to non-technical managers. We encountered similar difficulties during the implementation of the solution into operation.
Multiple parties including customers, development teams and business experts collaborated on Machine Vision Suite (MVS), a tool for modular software development. MVS contains modules - pre-prepared pieces of code, eg for image analysis or camera communication. Programmers can assemble individual modules in a well-arranged graphical interface. Thanks to this, they can create a relatively complex application in a matter of hours.
Machine Vision Suite plots data flow in the application in the form of well-arranged diagrams. Operators and laymen can easily understand the principle of its functioning. Visualization also makes it easier to communicate with engineers - integrating software into customer systems makes it many times faster.
The adaptation of Machine Vision Suite has made the development of new software several times faster and partially automated - even a less experienced programmer will create a new application in the platform environment. Thanks to the graphical representation of the managers we will quickly explain the principle of application operation and agree on further steps. Lower developer qualifications and quick agreement mean shorter development times - and lower costs for the end user.
The applications developed in Machine Vision Suite have proven successful for all clients we have introduced them into. We are currently creating software for several other operations at MVS and are preparing a commercial launch of the platform.
