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!
“As we migrate our standard calculations to Mathcad we have consistently found that design speed and efficiency is improved.” – Roger Murphy, Senior Structural Engineer, Axicom (Australia)
“With PTC Mathcad, I’m able to solve calculation problems in one day, compared to one to two weeks…” – Bert Beirinckx, Senior Technology Engineer, ZF Wind Power
“It takes half the time for students to understand complex relationships than it would with traditional methods.” – Dr Barry Pointon, Physics Lecturer, British Colombia Institute of Technology
