What Maplesoft gives you

Maplesoft’s suite of advanced software products combine a powerful mathematics engine with a slick and easy-to-use layout. By giving you a platform to make calculations in a robust and intuitive way, it makes exploring and solving mathematical problems easy.

With the ability to solve mathematical problems easily and accurately engineers can save on valuable time, and transition away from working equations out by hand. The software suite covers almost every branch of mathematics, including calculus, algebra, differential equations and statistics.


There are a variety of customisable 2D and 3D plots and animations that represent mathematical problems, and data more visually. Finalised calculations can be kept in one place and exported in a single document, meaning you don’t have to recreate your mathematics in a secondary resource.

Maple provides an environment where engineers can create technical, mathematical documents using a sophisticated programming language that is designed purposefully for mathematics. It makes your code shorter, easier to debug and a breeze to keep on top of.


How engineers can use Maplesoft

Complicated projects often require complicated mathematics, and with access to Maplesoft, engineers can run a plethora of mathematical equations in an environment that helps them to maximise the value of their calculation efforts.

As mathematics can underpin any design or analysis, Maple can have a broad spectrum of applications including:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Academia 
  • Statistical Analysis

Maple has been an important tool for DOCAN in many projects, allowing us to build and solve complex calculations quickly and easily. It also gives us the ability to produce our own DOCAN Stress Engineering Tools (DSET) that can be used repeatedly and reliably to give us valuable results quickly.


MapleSim for Engineering Design

MapleSim is a system level modelling and simulation tool that enables a model-driven approach to engineering design and development. It helps you to meet the challenges of complex design projects, create better products, and get to market faster.

With MapleSim you can improve your engineering design with advanced analysis and model optimisation tools that give you greater insight into system behaviour.

Cut down on your development time with modern tools that make it significantly faster to create, analyse and optimise multi-domain system level models, and reduce development risk by identifying unexpected sub-system interactions and design problems early in the development cycle.

  • Rapid creation and testing of initial concepts
    By enabling quick prototyping and testing of design concepts, MapleSim allows you to try out more ideas in less time, getting you on track quickly and energizing the creative design process.
  • Natural environment for modeling multidomain systems
    Model your entire system inside a single environment, so you can track down design flaws arising from unexpected interactions between different domains, and even prevent these problems from occurring in the first place.
  • Computationally efficient models
    MapleSim produces high fidelity, computationally efficient models suitable for in-the-loop simulations, controller design, and activities such as optimization, sensitivity analysis, and parameter sweeps, where many simulations are required to get results.

Maple Flow for Engineering Calculations

Maple Flow allows engineers to develop clean, uncluttered calculation reports to communicate their ideas across colleagues and clients. It is a simple, freeform interface with an engine that acts as a daily driver for all of your regular calculations.

Maple Flow helps you to create immersive technology reports using live mathematics, and develop them in an uncluttered way by placing calculations, text, images and plots anywhere on a blank canvas.

Brainstorm, develop, and document design your calculations using a live whiteboard-style environment that automatically updates calculations as you refine and build your work.

  • Refine Your Work Easily
    With Maple Flow, refinement is encouraged. As your ideas and solutions take shape, you can progressively add text, images, plots, and more – gradually creating a polished, professional technical document.
  • Automatic Recalculation
    Any changes you make to math are automatically cascade throughout the entire document, so results are always up to date.
  • Based on the Maple Programming Language
    You can use nearly all of Maple’s packages, including a full-featured units system. With mathematical notation, MAPLE understands the standard conventions. Display your equations your way, MAPLE will interpret this as expected.
