MasTec has several large projects on its books, spread out over about 3 years. There are gaps in this schedule.
MasTec is still undertaking new projects in legacy LV 6.1 /7.1 systems still running in Windows XP. Many sites still run XP for their LABs and Production areas.
Major new projects are still undetaken in LabVIEW 7.1 that run in Windows 7 32 Bit OS, very successfully. LabVIEW 7.1 is still (in our opinion) the best LabVIEW ever released. Fast, efficient and stable. Win 7 32 bit OS will be available for some time. Most large corporations are still running Win 7 due to its excellent stability and IT staffs familiarity and history.
However, other projects using from LabVIEW 2010 up to the present version of 2015 SP1, which is good, but very processor hungry and much slower to develop in. We only recommend I7s CPUs with this software with SSDs for the OS and LV.
Over the last year MasTec has completed 6 major projects in sites through out NZ. Several hundred hours of programming work has been completed, as well as many hundreds of hours of commissioning, site management, and installation.
All these projects involved LabVIEW at the core. However, many of these projects also include PACs, PLCs, Process Controllers, with peripherals like Servos, Actuators, VSDs, Water measurement and control, Hydraulic Control and other real world systems.
The MD of MasTec has recently decided it is time to realign his life after 50 years of technology, to go horse riding with his wife and dogs Polly, Lilly and newly arrived Freddie.
If you have an interest in owning this important technology company, now is the time to act and start communcation for succession in early 2017.
