Engineering calculations are almost always the forgotten step when it comes to design or analysis. These calculations can predict behaviour early in the process or drive critical parameters and dimensions, yet we rely on flawed methods like hand calculations or spreadsheets. In fact, studies have consistently proven the alarmingly high error rates found in spreadsheets:

  • 88%1 – The Wall Street Journal (2013)
  • 91%2 – KPMG (1998)
  • 90%3 – Journal of Accountancy (1996)

There is a better way!

PTC Mathcad is the industry solution allowing anyone to easily perform, document and share their calculations. It not only allows users to perform calculations, but capture valuable knowledge, reuse existing work and easily validate design accuracy. By combining comprehensive mathematics with an easy-to-use interface, PTC Mathcad seamlessly integrates into existing processes to improve product quality and deliver them to the market faster!
