Pros: It is not difficult to learn the basics of TestStand. If you have any coding experience at all, you shouldn't have any issues learning how to use it. My experience with the many people that have started using TestStand with our work over the last few years is that it can be picked up quickly, and has the capability for complex work when needed.

Cons: It is somewhat expensive, although when considering the benefits of using it, is worth the cost. The only thing I could think of to improve it is some type of zoom control for everything you have on your screen. I've found that when we are holding code reviews with TestStand displayed on a large screen, sometimes the resolution of the device we are projecting on is too high, and the text on screen is too small.

Overall: Allows my team to quickly complete their work in an efficient manner.

Pros: Easy to use, yet powerful capabilities

Cons: Somewhat expensive

Overall: We use TestStand to do Hardware-In-the-Loop testing of embedded systems controls. We've found that it is easy to learn, yet has very powerful capabilities. We've also gotten excellent support from National Instruments, both with issues and with assistance on ways to apply the tool to our needs. It does tend to be somewhat costly, but with the capabilities and support well worth it.

Pros: Off-the shelf solution for all the stuff that it don't make economic sense to do yourself

Ability to import non-NI code modules, making it agnostic of your SW preferences

Good training available

Plug-and-play compatible to skyWATS.com for test data analysis

Cons: TestStand is very comprehensive, and requires proper training.

Large size of installers

A bit lacking when it comes to off-the-shelf ability to capture all relevant meta-data (like UUT revision)

Overall: I used to work for NI, and now work for one of their alliance partners developing test sequencers. In theory, we could have had more billable hours if we built sequencers in LabVIEW, but TestStand allows us to deliver solutions that are technically superior, easier to maintain and that reduces the lifetime cost for our end-customer.

Comments: I been using Teststand for 3 years. it's a good tool for testing, have all kinds of function for coding and it's easy to use. It's suit person never have coding experience to coding for test. you can also make code module and custom steps to fit your work. The new analysis function is very good for debug issue. highly recommend!
