New task-based, document-centric calculations environment improves personal and engineering process productivity.
PTC launched Mathcad Prime 1.0, engineering calculation software. The product delivers a new tasked-based user interface – enabling engineers to focus on developing engineering calculations rather than formatting design documents.
Mathcad presents calculations, text and images in an understandable format, enabling knowledge capture, reuse and design verification, which can result in improved product quality with faster time-to-market. As part of PTC’s product development system (PDS), Mathcad’s integration with other PTC products including Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER) and Windchill can enable increased productivity, improved process efficiency, and better collaboration between individuals and groups.
Highlights of Mathcad Prime 1.0 include:
New task-based interface – promotes productivity while also enabling you to learn unfamiliar functions or features quickly and easily.
Document-centric calculation environment – helps you create detailed, professional engineering design documents that include complex calculations quickly and easily, using live standard math notation with text, images and graphs. Additionally, documents are easy to read and understand by non-Mathcad users, thus supporting effective communication of designs and engineering knowledge across the enterprise.
Advanced math exploration – Powerful capabilities along with an environment to display, manipulate, analyze and plot data with full units support.
Dynamic units support – full support for units throughout all calculations created in Mathcad Prime 1.0 improves process efficiency by helping to reduce errors and increase accuracy of results.
Intuitive equation editor – WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) equation editor enables you to express problem constraints and solutions in natural math notation allowing you to focus on the calculations and spend less time manipulating the document.
Mathcad Prime 1.0 is available now in all supported languages.
