In the arena of software development, there are many tools. However, one area of the development process where tools are wanting is in the area of designing and modeling algorithms. An algorithm is a set of instructions for solving a problem. And during the design of an algorithm, the details of a particular programming language can be distracting and thus obscure the simplicity of the solution. The goal of this paper is to introduce the reader to an “off-the-shelf” means of developing algorithms in both a faster and more intuitive way. The proposed methodology utilizes LabVIEW, a graphical programming language normally used for data acquisition and automating production testers.
