A KPMG study found that, in a sample of 22 spreadsheets, 91 percent contained errors. Is this a fluke? Nope. A similar study by S.G. Powell discovered that, in a sample of 25 operational spreadsheets, 10 had an error — with the consequent financial impact ranging from $216,806 to $110,543,305. That’s not the kind of money any company can risk losing.
When it comes to making engineering calculations, many people still rely on Excel. Excel is an excellent tool, but it has a number of limitations when it comes to computing complex calculations. Not to mention, the difficulty in documenting and reusing one’s work. It is essential to capture calculations in a way that is easy to reuse, analyze, and share with others. This allows you to spend more of your time actually engineering!
