PTC, the Product Development Company, has released that Lockheed Martin’s Engineering Process Improvement Center (EPIC) has added Mathcad to its preferred supplier agreement, with PTC as a tool for critical engineering calculations. Mathcad provides industry leading capabilities to create, automate, document, and reuse engineering calculations in the product development process.
PTC recently added Mathcad to its product offering, when it acquired Mathsoft Engineering and Education, Inc. in April 2006. Lockheed Martin is also a customer of PTC Pro/ENGINEER for the development of detailed, intuitive and realistic digital product representations, PTC Windchill for content and process management, and PTC Arbortext for dynamic publishing.
PTC’s addition of Mathcad to its product portfolio allows customers to easily implement integrated and efficient engineering calculation management. This can result is saving valuable engineers’ time and reducing errors. Lockheed Martin is consistently trying to improve design efficiency to bring higher quality products to market in shorter timeframes.
Mathcad’s ease-of-use and ability to facilitate the creation and sharing of important product and system design parameters, is a keystone to the design process. The ability to share details early in the design process better informs decision makers, and provides visibility and traceability during the entire development effort.
Mathcad can help customers improve verification and validation of critical calculations, reuse calculation content, and importantly document calculations, capturing valuable company intellectual property. The combined strengths of Pro/ENGINEER and Mathcad deliver an integral solution that helps automate the process of leveraging critical engineering calculations to drive product design models.
