So today it is possible just by using Microsoft Excel and it’s programming abilities to write real software which can solve all daily engineering calculations with ease.
Engineering Calculations are easy to do today
So what does an engineer need when creating calculations? First there are input parameters, which should be entered on a very simple and a quick way, then a simple sketch as a graphical representation of the basis of calculation with annotations of input parameters. After that engineer needs to define the mathematical procedure which could be very simple, but it should also enable him, to write also more complex formulas or iterations. This is very easy to do with Excel.
