Engineering firms bill the creation of a spreadsheet to a project, however, the in-depth review of that same spreadsheet by a senior engineer is often considered unbillable time.
Pensolve provides a structure to your spreadsheets allowing easy navigation for the reviewer as well as converting the entire spreadsheet into hand-written calculations on a PDF, so the reviewer can understand and assess the quality of the calculations in minutes rather than hours.
A single design error that results in a court hearing costs an engineering firm approximately $100,000 if you have insurance! Pensolve's workflow is designed to make engineers think and it encourages self-review. The transparency provided by converting calculations into hand-written form allow them to be understood and critiqued in an internal peer-review before the design is finalised.
When you prepare a spreadsheet for printing you often restructure your calculations and comments to squeeze them onto a page. This process wastes productive engineering time and makes your spreadsheet harder to understand. Instead, let Pensolve do presentation for printing and you can just structure your spreadsheet for usability.
Pensolve provides structure to spreadsheets based on industry best practices.
These simple steps allow your spreadsheets to be easily modified and understood by others.
