This is a software tool for engineering calculations.
PTC MathCad is software for solving, analyzing, and sharing your engineering calculations. It supports mathematical notations, has built-in intelligent use of units, supports extensive calculations and thus is a very good tool for engineering design support. This has a simple and easy to use interface. It is intuitive enough that most users should get familiar with it quite easily. Getting productive with it should not take much time. Particularly the engineering users will be able to get used to it very quickly. Engineers and design teams will be able to capture and communicate their design and engineering data very easily. Despite some calculations capabilities available with spreadsheets, word processing or presentations software, the Mathcad exceeds those by combining powerful calculation capabilities that are easily human readable. These human readable calculations get combined with plots, graphs, text, and images. The combined document is thus much more useful to users.
These documents are like engineering notebooks and help in design exploration, validation and verification, and the clear communication of critical engineering data to each other. Even newbie engineers will be able to assimilate the data exchanged through these documents. A lot of built-in mathematical functions and the ability to define your own calculations let this tool help in a really wide range of calculations. The latest version brings the capability to solve complex systems of equations numerically as well as symbolically. From casual users to real power users could benefit from this package. A range of functions are supported along with facility to program your own calculations gives this tool added flexibility. This is an excellent product.
