PTC Mathcad Review: "Robust and fast data analysis"

It plays a role of advanced engineering calculator. It is used mostly to analyze a data quickly. I don't know how intensively it is used at the department or organization. MathCAD has been my own long-term preference when it comes to a basic processing of engineering data and graphical visualization.
  • Fitting the experimental data with an arbitrary fitting function and visualization of the results
  • Writing a technical document with lots of mathematical calculations, that should look a kind of professional
  • Operation with arrays and matrices, processing of raw data with arbitrary methods
  • A limited number of file formats for export, especially those that support visual graphics in vector format
  • Interfaces for mathematics and equations with MathType and LaTeX / MikTex / Tex
  • Limited functionality for visualization of data in a 3D format
In most cases, MathCAD is good for basic express analysis of data and creating professionally looking express reports incorporating mathematics, text, and graphics. It is not much use for analysis for complex mathematical calculations like a solution of advanced differential equations or system of ODE. I miss very much the functionally from good old MathCAD 15. It would be nice to move it completely to MathCAD Prime.

MathCad is our department's engineering calculator. We have built a library of common equations to be solved for our products which we employ with the development of each and every new product we design. It is presently used only within our Engineering Team at our Design Center as it contains proprietary functions built on years of testing and experimentation.
  • MathCad has a relatively easy to learn and easy to use programming language.
  • It is easy to deploy and manage seats of MathCad.
  • Documentation and support are reasonably strong.
  • Since Prime, MathCad has improved its user interface. It still, however, lacks the visual qualities that could make it more efficient.
  • While able to integrate and pass values back to solid 3D models, this process isn't always reliable or easy.
MathCad is well-suited for the documentation and execution of engineering mathematics. However, as a program becomes more complex the coding structure decreases in efficiency and one may wish to write custom code using an established machine language. Scenarios where copious amounts of data need to be transferred in and out of MathCad also are less efficient than other means but better than, say, MS-Excel.
