The Scripting glyph in ICE-flow GlyphWorks empowers new customer specific functionality

nCode International , a leading developer of data analysis software, data acquisition systems and durability solutions, today announced the latest update release of ICE-flow GlyphWorks, including the introduction of a 'GlyphBuilder' capability which uses the Python scripting language. This provides a unique way for users to add specific or proprietary methods into an "off-the shelf" analysis framework and effectively opens up GlyphWorks to a whole range of applications.

ICE-flow GlyphWorks data analysis software provides a graphical, process-oriented environment that enables engineers to rapidly extract useful information from vast amounts of measured data. Complete multi-step analysis processes can be easily created using individual function building blocks called 'glyphs'. The new GlyphBuilder capability provides a Scripting glyph which enables users to now program their own glyphs using Python.

GlyphWorks customers include many of the world's major automotive and aerospace manufacturers such as Ford Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën and Lockheed Martin, who require the ability to process large amounts of test data. These companies often have proprietary analysis methods that cannot be included in a commercial software product. This new scripting capability enables them to cost-effectively retain the knowledge in-house while gaining the productivity benefits of using a standard analysis tool such as GlyphWorks. Other applications include the ability to add support for new or unusual file formats or accessing other third party tools.

Python is a powerful object-oriented programming language that is developed and maintained by a global community of open source developers. The language is the basis of applications used by tens of thousands of companies and organizations worldwide including, Google and NASA, and used in other engineering products such as ABAQUS. Python developers can easily take advantage of the graphical environment of GlyphWorks for visualizing and reporting engineering data including 3D displays and mapping of GPS data.

"The Scripting glyph in ICE-flow GlyphWorks empowers new customer specific functionality," says Jon Aldred, ICE-flow GlyphWorks Product Manager. "The Scripting glyph allows GlyphWorks users to rapidly build custom functions - and to incorporate these in GlyphWorks processes. The scripting capability truly unleashes the power of GlyphWorks and we expect this functionality to be rapidly adopted. Python provides an excellent choice for scripting because of its ease of use and wide acceptance in many industries including engineering."

The Scripting glyph is available for Windows 32-bit platforms in the ICE-flow 4.1 ISR3 update release and will be available across all platforms at the next major release in Spring 2008.
