RE: Calculation Software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

For several years, we have had multiple licenses for both TEDDS and Mathcad.  About a year ago, I came to the conclusion that my engineers were using Mathcad every day but were no longer using TEDDS at all.  Consequently, when TEDDS came up for maintenance renewal, we opted out.

I'm considering the purchase of an engineering "calculation pad" software. The three under consideration are:

TEDDS by CSC: $900
Layout by Research Engineers International (STAAD)
Mathcad by Mathsoft: $1000 + $235 (CE pack) = $1235

Does anyone have any opinions for or against any of these programs?  I currently use MS Excel and hand calc's, but want something more formula friendly and presentable than Excel, and hand calc's are always a pain for small changes and error correction.  Also, I had a project recently where I had to submit all calc's electronically - I had to scan everything then print to a PDF file.
