Why should engineers know how to use Excel? What advantages does it grant them and in what way does it allow them to stay ahead of the market? Just as the chisel is among the tools commonly used by carpenters to create uncommon objects, Excel is among the most widely used engineering tools and is capable of producing exceptional results!
The concept is extremely simple: anyone in the field of engineering who wishes to work better and produce more must have a thorough knowledge of this extraordinary software. That is not to say that those who know how to use Excel can use it to complete every single task every time, but its widespread global popularity makes it one of the most useful tools of all for engineers.
This depends, above all, on the fact that this program has three fundamental features, which we will outline below. These effective, specific characteristics have, over time, transformed it into one of the most efficient, complete and essential software products of the modern commercial arena.
Excel is the ideal tool to allow you to work better with reduced effort, because it features such a variety of functions, allowing it to adapt easily to any task. Its flexibility allows you to carry out calculations, equations, planning, create diagrams, numerical integrations and any other operation which may be required by programs in this sector.
Seeing as more or less everyone knows how to use Excel to some degree, you can generally find it installed on any computer. Its widespread availability enables its users to create and share each document created with directors, colleagues, suppliers and clients, thereby facilitating the exchange of information and maximizing productivity.
Integration with other software
Excel offers the opportunity for all-round integration, which makes it compatible with a wide range of software. This is true in the case of programs such as Power Point or Word: very different systems (one for the creation of presentations and the other for textual content) which, despite this, are able to communicate with the program perfectly.
These are the main reasons for learning to use Excel: one of the most useful and complete tools for engineers on the market.
