Recommendations for integrating an IP Experiment into a work flow
Thu, 07/13/2017 - 07:34 am
I have developed an experiment for a client that analyzes an image and generates several statistics and output summary waves that get saved for further analysis in another program typically JMP. There are two methods of running the analysis first the user can select and image and the analysis runs and saves all the files. The other methods is have the user point to a top level directory and then the program traverses the subdirectories and finds the images and processes them in sequence, basically a version of a batch mode.
The client would now like to progress further and incorporate the analysis automatically when the image is generated. The image is generated in a tool built by the client and they have control of the software interface. It is my understanding that the interface that the operator uses is created in visuals C++ and runs on a windows based server. When the image is taken the host software has the path information to that image.
What would be the easiest way to integrate the analysis by IP7. Basically the experiment would need to know where the image file was located, run the analysis and then quit. I have never done this type of integration before and looking for tips. The client has control of the interface software and can makes changes as necessary.
How should we proceed?
Thanks in advance.
