MathCAD Application Server

Hello,

I have been looking around the web for a fair bit and have found this document:

http://www.vmk.ee/MathSoft/AppServerInternational.pdf

It is a MathCAD Application Server that would allow you to create a document and then essentially can be re-used by people who have no experience at all with MathCAD. After a bit of digging I found that the company was bought by PTC and the software is now integrated into WindChill Products.

My question is: What WindChill Product do I need in order to use this? and where can I obtain a copy to evaluate?

Thank You in advance

Re: MathCAD Application Server

Hi all,

I don't think this needs further clarification... but as you know we don't support the Mathcad Application Server (a.k.a. Mathcad Calculation Server) any more. We are considering a revival of a calculation server at some point int he future, based upon the Mathcad Prime platform. However, this is not imminent.

We are continuing, in the meantime, to capture requirements and typical use cases for such a solution, to help us assess its marketability. While I understand what you accomplish with your CalcServer, Valery, perhaps others can chime in with some of the most critical problems that would ideally be solved using a reincarnation of this product offering.

Thanks in advance,

Mark

p.s. I forgot to add that the Calculation Server was not integrated into Windchill as was originally surmised. We have integrated Mathcad with Windchill form a structured data-management perspective, allowing Mathcad worksheets and their dependent datasets to be life-cycle managed. However, Windchill itself is not a live calculation environment wherein Mathcad worksheets can calculate - at least not today. As such, without this (and without a Calculation Server replacement) Mathcad worksheets still need to be used client-side, on the machine which has the Mathcad application on it, to be live. Hope that helps.

Can you not do this with Mathcad?

Re: MathCAD Application Server

Hello Mike,

I was also thinking that when we are in the field so we can do some prelimarny calculations on clients machines or our field laptops. This would be easier then putting MathCAD on these machines as they are pretty under powered or locked down. Also it seemed like we could access all of our calculations on any web enabled device so our phones would become more powerful.

Oh right I get it. Valery has something set up similar to this and I think would be interested to hear about your plans. I think his website based server is called MAS, but not entirely sure.
