"No hay nada que no puedas hacer con MATLAB"

What do you like best?

Aprendí a utilizar MATLAB en la universidad. Me encanta la facilidad de uso. Me da la capacidad de resolver problemas sin mucho trabajo manual. Automatiza cosas que no considerarías automatizadas. Con todos los paquetes, rara vez necesita escribir funciones. La sintaxis es muy fácil de entender y los mensajes de error son significativos lo que ayuda a corregir el error rápidamente.

Es una muy buena forma de aprender algoritmos y una buena forma de desarrollar algunas habilidades de software. La interfaz de usuario es muy fácil de usar, el lenguaje es muy intuitivo y flexible.

What do you dislike?

La letra pequeña de Matlab es muy difícil de leer, especialmente cuando escribe mucho. Necesita algún tipo de error automático o botón duplicado en caso de que los usuarios dupliquen accidentalmente varias líneas o quieran duplicar varias líneas de código. No es el lenguaje informático más eficiente o rápido.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es realmente un software asombroso para estudiantes de ingeniería. Puede ser útil para estudiantes eléctricos, mecánicos y de informática para resolver diferentes aspectos de problemas. De alguna manera es costoso comprar, pero muchas instituciones tienen sus propias suscripciones para los estudiantes para que puedan usarlo de forma gratuita.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great tool boxes"

What do you like best?

The ability to process a variety of data. The interface is also user-friendly. the suggestion and notification of acceptable arguments is a good feature. This is because it makes it easier to trace errors from inputs

What do you dislike?

it is sometimes slow in loading. The lag when running computationally expensive methods is quite frustrating. I do understand it also depends on the power of the machine, but freezing the machine entirely comes from Matlab's memory consumption

Recommendations to others considering the product

The use of toolbar options saves a lot of time in typing codes and errors. For example imtool. It is easier clicking on the image from the workspace, selecting plots and them imtool, than to type the code. It also greys out unavailable options, which can save time

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Matlab for my academic research. I read images, then carry out operations on them. Matlab is good with statistical analysis, which I think makes it good for images.

What Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"MATLAB, The Great"

What do you like best?

MATLAB, unlike other SDKs, has a very powerful console. You can do anything directly through the MATLAB console with no need to write a whole C/C++ program to do simple things.

The best thing that MATLAB has, for me is the easy way that you can creat a simple and intuitive GUI with a very powerful wizard.

Also MATLAB has a lot of professional packages and toolboxes for complex problems resolutions. Like Signals Processing, Image Processing, Calculus, etc., very powerful for electronics and circuit theory and analysis of electronic digital signals and systems (is the part of MATLAB that I most use).

If you have a small knowledge of C/C++/Java, you can start to write code just with open MATLAB.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing I found is that when your GUI starts to grow and you have many objects, the performance starts to decrease very quickly and sometimes it starts to crash.

Another thing is that you can't have more than one function in each file. I mean, you can't make a kind of library in one .m file. If you have different functions, you need to have different files, and the size of your projects increase a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MATLAB is perfect for education, with all the specific and professional toolboxes that it has, is a very powerful program to learn how to develop a workable platform.

I think that is a little less appropriate in the case that you are an app developer, where you have to make an application that has to work independently if the user does or doesn't have a clue on how to use MATLAB.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MATLAB has had a very positive impact on the things that I've done. I can test very quickly (and in some way beautiful) all the electronic stuff that I make and need a connection to the computer to changes values or parameters directly from de GUI.

"Using Matlab as an electrical engineer"

What do you like best?

versatile settings to plot figures.

very much user-friendly to install, compile, correcting errors and execute.

huge numbers of available help and codes in Matlab central online community.

very easy to connect to a hardware through serial and USB connections.

Simulink is probably one of the best ways other than NI LabVIEW to create a functional GUI.

What do you dislike?

buffer requirements in real-time simulation slow down GUI response time.

Unless working with Simulink, there is still a need to increase the number of predefined functions. For an example, in RF toolbox, please add a feature of viewing radiation pattern of an array of an equally spaced isotropic radiators.

The matlab-labview software module that helps to connect these two software is way too much expensive, and not available in a cheaper version for academic use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Matlab for various functions, such as analytical computation, statistical analysis, real-time simulation, array factor computations, plotting graphs and figures with detail description, bit error analysis, and noise reduction in signal transmission using various digital modulation techniques.

"Nice but pricey"

What do you like best?

Matlab is relatively easy to learn, and it is fantastic for designing programs that involve lots of matrix operations. The best thing about matlab, in my opinion, is the debugger. The real-time debugger allows you to see what your code is doing, for example, in each iteration of a for loop. This is immensely useful and can save a lot of time when debugging. In addition, Matlab allows you to run selected lines of code at a time to test chunks of code, but you can also run entire scripts at once by typing the name of the script into the console. There are also a variety of add-on packages for machine learning (neural nets, support vector machines, random forests) and evolutionary computation. It can also read in very large, unconventional file types such as NetCDF. Finally, the Matlab technical support is fantastic. I had some issues installing the program on my machine, and when I called for help, I received a knowledgeable and courteous technician right away.

What do you dislike?

A Matlab license is expensive, and many data scientists and statisticians are beginning to use more open - source software such as R and Python. If one of my collaborators does not have access to Matlab, for example, I cannot share a script with them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Matlab is great for projects required a substantial amount of computational power, and even for beginners it is a relatively easy language to learn. I would recommend anyone who has access to a Matlab license to give it a shot!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Matlab has helped with my research. Since I've had Matlab, I've been able to contribute more to collaborative projects in which other team members are Matlab users. I do a lot of work with NetCDF files, and Matlab is very useful for manipulating that type of data, which has improved my research productivity and efficiency immensely.

"Matlab is the perfect tool for quick computations and more advanced analysis and simulations"

What do you like best?

Matlab has a very intuitive user interface and a user friendly language. It is very flexible, the documentation is clear, there are a lot of examples online to get you started with everything you need. The debugging tool is very easy to use, intuitive and effective. Code and functions are very easy to write and test. The interface allows you to check all variables very easily as well.

What do you dislike?

It is not the most efficient or fast computing language.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very good way to learn algorithms and a good way to develop some software skills. The user interface is very easy to use, the language is very intuitive and flexible. I learned debugging software with breakpoints using Matlab. Start by writing a few scripts and then go on to learning functions and how to organize your code in an efficient way, before tackling more in depth and involved simulations and analysis. I highly recommend Simulink as well for anyone working in aerospace or controls in general. It also has a very easy interface and the controls toolbox has everything you need for control system design, analysis and simulation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using Matlab for quick maths as well as aerospace, controls, space mechanics simulations and analysis.

"Review for matlab"

What do you like best?

I liked Simulink DSP toolbox for research purpose. In simulink you can develop any model i.e. communication model, control system model, different electro-mechanical model and you can validate it'e performance before implementation.

What do you dislike?

I disliked Classification learners APPS in matlab. It only give you outer view of classification but you can not make change in any major parameters in classification algorithm. Moreover, it's only can be used for beginners not advanced learners. I think it need to be more intuitive than easy user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's really an amazing software for engineering students. It can be useful for electrical, mechanical and computer science students for solving different aspects of problems. It is somehow costly to buy but many institutions have their own subscriptions for the students so that they can use it for free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on a classification toolbox. I am using it for a medical project. It has some classification apps and neural net apps that works for me.

"One to rule them all..."

What do you like best?

Honestly, MATLAB help. Starting my bachelor degree as an electrical engineer we came across mathematical plot simulation in our math course, our first encounter with MATLAB. We looked for classes, books and solution manuals and instructors to teach us. My adviser back then saved me by telling me, the best instructor is MATLAB help, I started then and 12 years later, I still use MATLAB daily.

What do you dislike?

The errors are clear, most of the software that I use need a decoder, many hours of research just to find out what the error is trying to tell you. With MATLAB the errors are more understandable, simple English, but still can be better.

My other problem when I was back in my home country Iran, Was that we were banned to use anything from math work! I never understood the reason but seems very unfair to students there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid to start with all the unknowns, there is MATLAB help and many many forums to help you out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently we are doing image processing with MATLAB,

It is rather easy and there are many tutorials to make the process of solving problem less complicated.

"MATLAB - Software for applied Mathematics"

What do you like best?

MATLAB is a wonderful tool which I use in my research. It is one of the best tools out there for floating point linear algebra, doing array manipulation and for mathematical functions. The notation used are simple and powerful, the implementation of various operations are fast, it is great for plotting graphs, it is easy to use, the live script and the command window make it easier to test out small code snippets.

What do you dislike?

Only thing I dislike about MATLAB is that it is not easy to integrate MATLAB with other software applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MATLAB is the best tool for doing mathematical calculations. It does not have a steep learning curve and is quite easy to get started, making it suitable even for beginners. It is great, just give it a try through trial version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mainly use it for research purposes focused on image retrieval. MATLAB makes it easy to plot histograms and graphs for visualizing the data. It has made my research paper much more enjoyable!

"Matlab is the mandatory software for every Engineer"

What do you like best?

Matlab allows you to test a concept before getting involved in the complex development of the system, since it has many functions that allow you to execute a methodology or technique first

What do you dislike?

There are many functions that one does not know exist until they are searched on the Internet, it would be good to have a drop-down menu that allows to review by categories, what functions are available

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that you do not get scared by the complexity of the software, it is vital as engineers or people in STEM to use Matlab, there you can try all the concepts before moving on to develop the system

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the time I'm using Matlab to solve problems about, mathematics, embedded systems, data processing and everything related to electrical engineering

"Linear Algebra made easy"

What do you like best?

Unlike other programming languages it comes with a complete package. IDE, interpreter, and debugger are all provided in one nice package. Secondly, most of the tools are already included in the installation package. I have been doing machine learning for the last couple of years and used MATLAB for implementing graph based semi-supervised learning, kernel learning, and etc. I never needed to install any packages for my need.

What do you dislike?

As a machine learning expert, I think Matlab is not the best tool for implementing deep neural networks. I prefer to use tensforflow or Caffe and python language.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MATLAB is a great tool for prototyping. When it comes to creating new products I usually use other programming languages like C++ or Python.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using MATLAB for training different machine learning algorithms like SVM, deep neural network, and etc.

Undoubtedly, MatLab offers one of the best experiences focused on solving complex mathematical problems. The possibilities offered are very broad.

From the simulation, to differential equations, matrix treatment, (almost) any mathematical problem can be solved in seconds using this program. Obviously there are problems too complex, but using numerical methods can also be approximate

It also offers a large community, with pre-created programs to save time.

What do you dislike?

La interfaz está un poco desactualizada. Necesitas hacer algún curso para aprender a dominar el programa. También necesitas sólidos conocimentos matemáticos. Puede resultar algo caro para usuarios noveles

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have enough mathematical knowledge before using it

"Application Engineer for 4 Years and I doing Masters in Computational Mechanics"

What do you like best?

In Matlab, Class, Vector module used for parallel computing.

What do you dislike?

For 3D plot, variables are difficult to find.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Matlab is the user friendly Scientific tool. It has user defined function, Vector Module are implemented very Easily. This Matlab is used to build finite element method or finite volume method with efficiently and solve structural and CFD Problem.

I used Matlab to solve the mechanical-thermal problem using coupled physics methods with help of finite element method user-defined function.

Matlab can Link with the commercial tool to solve industry problems such as finite element Analysis and CFD for creating the user-defined function by an easy implementation. Matlab can be used for direct and iterative solve to solve the engineering problem. Plot using graph(1D,2D), Contour are evaluate very easy.

I solve Heat equation using finite element methods with help of Matlab in 2D Domain as shown in below.

"Fantastic tool for all number crunching / prototyping / simulation / modeling"

What do you like best?

The versatility of MATLAB is amazing, It can be used from simple tasks like being a calculator, complex number manipulation, to something intermediate, such as data analysis and visualization, to something complex like filter design and feedback loop analysis and simulation. And these functions are just scratching at the surface. The ability to create lots of reusable functions allows it to be built up. Having been trained and used MATLAB since college, you grow as the problems you try to solve increase. MATLAB also has the capability of being integrated into C++/C# functions, or deployment version of code as well.

What do you dislike?

With the large flexibility and power of the tool, the trade off is a high cost, and steep learning curve. The sheer amount of functions create a dilemma such that you don't know what it's capable of sometime until you make it a research project to find out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unless you're an enterprise or heavily computationally based industry, the cost of MATLAB for multi-seat licenses can be prohibitive. Would suggest trying out something like GNU Octave as a stop gap measure for something cheaper. Otherwise I do love all the functions of MATLAB

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The functionality of MATLAB is an engineer's dream, all types of mathematics related engineering problems can be solved or analyzed using MATLAB

"Excellent coding software to support high end models and simulations"

What do you like best?

Matlab is very good at performing matrix operations, making it useful for things like image operations and control system analysis. It is very quick to develop code in Matlab. Many libraries (e.g. computer vision, signal analysis, GUI tools) are part of the Matlab ecosystem. This saves developers the time of installing and configuring new libraries to perform whatever tasks they have in mind. Instead, developers can quickly get an idea and try it out in code using the vast functionality of Matlab’s libraries.

What do you dislike?

The user interface could have been a bit better. Especially while writing out formulae and mathematical expressions, keeping up with the brackets and notation can get difficult.

What do you like best?

Matlab is very simple and easy to use. Provides and amazing platform to run programs and compile online in Matlab's servers which makes processing times very less

What do you dislike?

It is a bit expensive especially given the fact that there is an open source software called R which can pretty much do the same functions for free

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an Amazing software, you just need to consider if you can afford it or use the open source R instead. Both have amazing capabilities and is more convenience to programming on one platforom

"Matlab is more intuitive and comfortable than other computational platforms!"

What do you like best?

I've used Matlab to portray many astrophysics and physics simulations. Matlab does a great job of allowing the user to change/adjust parameters. I think it's a great resource for students who are just starting out with simulations. Graphing is especially a useful tool because Matlab allows you to zoom in on the graphs and pick specific points, allowing to make precise measurements with what I'm looking for. When compared to Mathematica, I do think Matlab is much better - especially if you're trying to create graphs, portray data with precise measurements, or are starting off with Physics or Astronomy (or even if you wish to do more advanced things).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, saving projects in Matlab isn't as intuitive. When showing new students how to use it, they were not sure how to access the file. These files are hard to locate on the desktop and sometimes run into complications when running.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teachers need a great resource for students to manipulate and adjust parameters in science environments. The benefit I've realized is that this is a great introduction for some of the less complicated simulations that students can run. Matlab provides a great and realistic component to research. One that is desperately needed for students in STEM.

"Versatile & Quick to grasp"

What do you like best?

Unlike other computer languages, matlab is very straightforward and can be picked up by the inexperienced computer language student in not much time at all. Not only is the software simple to learn; it can also be easily applied to many different applications once the language is understood. Of course, there are many technical applications for this program, but even the simplest of tasks can be completed quickly with a quick script. It easily does anything that Mathematica, or excel handles.

What do you dislike?

Overall, there is a very limited number of items that I dislike about this program. However, one of the things that I find a bit tedious at times is utilizing the various toolboxes that matlab has to offer. I often find myself struggling through ways to write code to bypass the issue of not having a particular function to use that is only available through toolboxes. As a young professional, I cannot justify buying these toolboxes for the tasks I have, and thus suffer through this downfall.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider using Matlab as one of the first programs you learn before moving onto other languages like Java or C. Many of the concepts learned through Matlab will transfer over if you move onto something more intense such as the above languages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I only recently learned how to write scripts with matlab, so the applications for which I use my work through matlab is a bit limited. However, in my practice with the program, I've found that there are many different ways in which a script can be transformed to serve a multitude of functions. Don't be fooled by it's simple graphics! I can definitely see this as being the backbone for many different computing needs in today's businesses.

"excellent tools for making prototype of numerical schemes, also a good tool for small calculation"

What do you like best?

Well-known mathematical (or precisely, numerical) software. with excellent built-in support vector / matrix operators. Syntax is quite simple that I think almost everyone can learn it in less than 1 hour. Quite simple way to parallel the loop.

Some people think that MATLAB is slow but actually it is not generally true. MATLAB is highly efficient considering that it is a script language (compared to other script language like Python). In my test I think MATLAB is also faster than some Fortran code that is not well written.

What do you dislike?

MATLAB is actually Object-Oriented, but it is not easy to use so almost no one use it.

Computer Algebra System and symbolic calculations is not good enough, but better than some open sources codes.

Display style of mathematical formula is poor, (after all MATLAB focuses on numerics). The new feature live script improves a little.

You should know if you need it. MATLAB does not have competitive competitor. Octave, python can be slow.

"Great tool for automation and simulations"

What do you like best?

Matlab is a great tool for automation, it's programming language is not at all complicated. Working with GUIs is really easy and that way your programs automatize several processes easily. It really shines when importing txt and xls data and processing it.

What do you dislike?

It can be overwhelming when you start using it if you don't have a basic programming knowledge. It requires a lot of space and memory for it to work properly. Sometimes you need to pay for extra libraries for doing basic operations. Plus it is really expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn some basic programming before expending a lot of money on matlab, because it is the only way you are going to get all you can get from the software, which is really expensive.

"MATLAB- Reliable computing software-Plotting results for various changing inputs"

What do you like best?

Matlab has a lot of functional features which could solve any complex numerical algorithms. The plots and graphical representation are very helpful than excel.The best part of matlab is it can iterate 1000 of design solutions for various inputs by just giving one code

What do you dislike?

The interface of matlab is not that much user friendly and also debugging errors is quite difficult. The processing duration gets a bit longer for complex fluid mechanics equation and optimisation algorithms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The process time for complex computational fluid analysis could be reduced. More simplified user experience would be a welcome move.

"Useful, but a headache"

What do you like best?

MATLAB has vast amounts of utility and can be used to create custom simulations and other applications ranging from simple coding to mathematical functions to in depth, detailed scenarios.

What do you dislike?

Even with its higher functionality, the "simple" coding is just different enough from other coding languages to provide a real headache to the user, unless that is the main coding the user utilizes. While learning the coding language in school, we were being taught multiple different languages all at the same time, which could be a reason why MATLAB seemed the most confusing out of them to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If this is going to be your primary coding language, you will have no issues. However, if you will be simultaneously using multiple languages for similar applications and simulations, there could be some slight issues down the line if you were to combine them unintentionally, which is an issue for all coding languages, not just MATLAB.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The custom simulations that I created through school were very useful in determining bottlenecks and the optimal points to add another function in a process.

"Great Data Manipulation Application with a Low Barrier to Entry Relative to the Power"

What do you like best?

Matlab has easy python-like syntax and has a very expansive set of libraries and apps to accomplish almost any computing task you can imagine, and is lightning fast at doing these computations. Also, their app system is great and is much easier to get into than something like Mathematica or Python, which may technically support these sorts of things on paper but have a slightly higher barrier to entry in practice.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have the flexibility of Mathematica or python in that its 1) not a strictly open-source language 2) lacks some of the key features (the most-cited one being symbolic manipulation) that really set Mathematica ahead. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of the way it handles folders and files, I prefer something more like Mathematica's file reading and manipulation functions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look up video tutorials, lynda has a series I believe. MathWorks has one but the only one I could find was very outdated. Regardless, it will get you started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for doing automated processing of data, we have an apparatus that performs a suite of electrochemical measurements as a function of position and there's simply no way to do that sort of computation in anything less than matlab or mathematica.

"This is simply the best software package I use for nearly everything"

What do you like best?

Matlab has immense versatility. I use it to control instrumentation, analyze image data, perform digital signal processing and much more. It is intuitive to use and fast to set up new applications. In a traditional programming language, this would take hours of learning for each step in that process. In Matlab, each of these comes as a pre-coded library of functions that are easy and intuitive to use.

What do you dislike?

Matlab has a core and packages. The price of additional packages seems disproportionate to the benefit they provide.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to have a highly versatile software platform that allows users to quickly create custom code without first having to earn a degree in computer engineering, this is your go-to solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Matlab for basic research. The primary benefit is that it has a low barrier to entry, and allows me to focus on the experiments I am performing rather than learning low-level language to communicate with external devices.

"Excellent software for scripting and data analytics"

What do you like best?

Matlab's syntax allows rapid development. It can be used for simple one-off scripts (like data processing or plotting) or for more involved programs. The recent addition of object-oriented programming and custom classes is very nice and enables another degree of complexity. Figure preparation is imperfect but it is possible to generate publication-quality figures (scientific research).

The extensive documentation is fantastic, as are the posts on the Mathworks forums. There are many demo scripts so the barrier to learning Matlab is quite low if you have any prior coding/scripting experience.

What do you dislike?

It is quite pricey without the academic discount, which is an obstacle to "deployment" of Matlab workflows in industry if a company needs to buy a single-user license. There are also some minor frustrations with figure preparation that could use improvements (e.g., multiply y axes, spacing around axis labels, excessive whitespace when using subplots).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Only basic coding background is needed. Mathworks has excellent documentation and very helpful forums.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MATLAB is used routinely for automation of data processing and figure generation for our scientific research. Direct importing of raw data in Excel, and processing pipelines are easily reusable.

"MatLab"

What do you like best?

Matlab is simple and easy to use, the scripts and coding for it is very basic and you can test the scripts by simply going into the mode. It is an easy software to start on to learn the fundamentals and basics to begin your coding career.

What do you dislike?

Matlabs small font is hard to read especially when you are writing a lot. It needs some type of automatic error or duplicate button in case users accidentally duplicate multiple lines or want to duplicate multiple lines of code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Matlab is easy and is friendly, you can learn a lot together and it can do the basics. If you need it to do arrays to help solve engineering problems and to help predict trends this tool will help you. You can also use it to build code and to help debug certain softwares you're using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Matlab is used to predict trends and do simple math. By writing the correct code it can be use as macros or to do linear algebra and different types of differential equations that can help solve engineering problems in the field and in the production unit.

"MATLAB is an engineer's best friend"

What do you like best?

I think the best part about MATLAB is the number of basic and advanced functions that have already been written by MATLAB and made available to all users. There is great supporting documentation online from Mathworks that provides simple examples of how to use these functions, and they even provide all the code they use for these examples. Another great feature is the online community that has been built around MATLAB. This community has answered numerous questions and even published their own functions for other users to download.

Parallel processing is another great feature of MATLAB that is easy to turn on and utilize. This is especially powerful in

What do you dislike?

Debugging is one of the weaknesses of MATLAB. It can be hard to see the values of variables that are used in subfunctions as opposed to the main command script.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think MATLAB Is an excellent tool for anyone that is looking into a coding language/community to solve engineering oriented problems. Of course, MATLAB can be used to solve many other problems like manipulating spreadsheets and editing movies. I would definitely consider MATLAB if an online community with numerous questions answered is something you would find helpful! There are also numerous MATLAB toolboxes that don't come with the basic version of MATLAB but can be incredibly helpful to solve a specific problem. For example, the computer vision toolbox is great for facial/object recognition projects since the toolbox comes with pre-written basic functions.

"Matlab is a great programming language"

What do you like best?

I extensively used Matlab while I had to analyze large data files and analyze them and generate plots for my Masters thesis. I continue to use Matlab although I use F77 and Scilab as well. Matlab is a great processing tool and the quality of the plots it generates can not be done Scilab. It took me some time to get accustomed with Matlab but it is absolutely worth it. The mapping toolbox was a great add on that really helped me with the plots and they look really great for analysis that has temperature as a variable.

What do you dislike?

Matlab could not handle some of the really large data files I had that were between 1 and 2.5 GB and will continuously fail to load some of them when I was calling more than a couple of them in a script and was trying to run some statistical analysis. I had to go back to Fortran and analyze the data with F77 and had to come back to matlab to generate plots. However, I will not hold that agaianst Matlab. I am not sure if anything other than FORTRAN would have handled such large data files. Having said that, F77 can not generate those cool graphics or plots that Matlab can.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Matlab is great computing tool. The only other program I would consider superior to Matlab is Fortran but if you need to generate plots and figures then Fortran is not going to help you with that. Matlab is your go to software for analyzing data and producing plots that look professional

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was analyzing weather and climate data. I was using Matlab to convert data files into readable files and was analyzing them for statistical application. Right now I am using Matlab to run Monte Carlo simulation for sea surface temperature data that is used in analyzing El Nino Southern Oscillation.

"Great software, steep learning curve"

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed how straightforward the software is in comparison to other coding languages. Things such as for and while loops seem natural and creating and using a function is very easy. I also enjoy the ease of transferring data from other sources such as excel as I find graphing and data representation is done better on MATLAB. Finally, the help menu is very simple and helpful at solving any issue that occurred during my time on the software.

What do you dislike?

One of the main problems I had with this software is debugging a problematic code. I always found it difficult to understand what the error actually meant and usually had me needing to make a google search, an noneffective use of my time. I feel like if they errors were more helpful and clear then I would be able to become much more effective at using this program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly math based problems were I am given a set of data usually from excel and then I will need to preform numerous functions such as deviation and integration to solve the given task. Then for presentations, I use the graphing function for a final visual product to help me explain my points.

"Awesome Software, Documentation Leaves Much to be Desired"

What do you like best?

Extraordinary measure of highlights and capacities, incredible for doing a wide range of math. Be that as it may, the documentation is really poor. The greater part of the documentation resembles a word reference definition, with couple of cases on the best way to really utilize/execute a capacity. I have invested a ton of energy looking for cases of capacity utilization and also making inquiries on their discussions. It'd spare novices a ton of time if Math-works put somewhat more time in delivering nice documentation.

What do you dislike?

I have discovered Octave (free for download) is presently Matlab's equivalent for essential computational needs and offers comparable tool compartments to Matlab. The main drawback is while Mathworks offers free telephone bolster gave you have a permit you have to depend on Octave discussions for such offer assistance. A portion of the gathering members can be ear-splitting on the off chance that you make inquiries that are excessively fundamental. There are some little contrasts between the two items that take only a couple of hours to comprehend and utilize. I utilized Matlab for a long time in my activity however now utilize Octave broadly and observe it to be tantamount to Matlab.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I utilized matlab week after week in my university for different designing issues. Principally it was utilized as a part of my controls classes.However it was additionally valuable for different reproductions and displaying warm frameworks.

"Better than other alternatives"

What do you like best?

Data slicing and operations are very intuitive. Once you get used to a matrix being the base data structure, everything follows pretty well. Toolboxes are very well integrated into the product unlike some of the open source alternatives.

What do you dislike?

From a software engineering perspective, syntax and structure are sloppy. Things like memory management and the debugger break very easily. Much slower than traditional languages like C and Python.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Matlab is good for prototyping but not for production software needs. Matlab WILL break, consider using R or Python instead for production scripts. However development in R/Python will never be as fast as in Matlab.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Matlab is good for data scientists who are exploring solutions and prototyping. It allows to go from problem statement to solution in the least amount of time. The benefits are that it is very easy to learn and use. For a new recruit learning and using Matlab requires days while learning and using Python-Scipy/Scikitlearn/Theano will take weeks.

"Practical Programming for Engineers "

What do you like best?

The intuitive nature behind MatLab’s ability to understand engineering syntax. For example, when I raise a variable to a power I can simply use the “^” symbol.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the format for generating loops. I first learned Java and it’s syntax for loops became natural. In general MatLab does a great job at being intuitive however, generating loops is the one odd syntax that I still can’t get used to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can perform linear transformations super easily. When interpreting Force and Moment distributions on a plane from a software called VLAERO, the coordinate system differs from the coordinate system I use when designing a wing box so MatLab helps me solve that issue.

"My experience with Matlab"

What do you like best?

1- The easily understandable interface.

2- It's more simple than other programming languages like C++ for example.

3- Whenever you are stuck with something, you can search for a solution on Matlab exchange online.

4- You can simply do anything with it for any purpose.

5- It keeps everything you write in its history, which saves the day when you forget who did you do something in the first place.

What do you dislike?

1- I do very complex models and calculations that take a long time to run and sometimes the machine is not able to give a result.

2- In the newer versions they are removing some old functions that I use all the time. So, it takes the time to cope with the new ones or the new ways of figuring things out.

3- For some easy calculations, excel sometimes is a better choice (Matlab is still the best choice when things get very complex).

4- A general dislike for all programming languages is when you get stuck and all the doors look like they are closed in your face. But you get used to it and you get better with time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. Matlab is the correct choice over any other programming language. Use it and you won't regret it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm doing a lot of things.

1- I'm using it to solve complex mass transfer problems.

2- Build hybrid power plants in Simulink.

"Great tool used in school"

What do you like best?

Matlab was widely used at my school, so it had a large user base to get help from. Additionally, the online help services and forums are incredible. It's a great tool for people who aren't hard core coders.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes matlab would run slowly, if I was running optimization programs, which isn't too surprising. That's a reflection on both code writing technique as well as the software itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Matlab was really useful for me, but I was worried about the price after I graduated. Turns out they have a cheap option for about $100 a year or something, which is really reasonable considering how much you get.

"One of the most powerful programming languages for scientific computing."

What do you like best?

Without mincing words, MATLAB is a workhorse. Few programming languages prioritize vectorization and the rules of linear algebra, but MATLAB does so so well that it makes scientific computing much more accessible for anyone working with data. There is no shortage of functions for any task you might want to complete.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that memory issues sometimes come up for very large datasets or for very large arrays. I also dislike that some of the error messages don't describe the problem well, although you can often find clarification online.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MATLAB has a 30 day trial, and I would highly recommend interested users first download it before buying a permanent copy. There is also a two hour online onramp to teach the fundamentals of this language.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Matlab makes dreams come true!"

What do you like best?

Matlab is very similar to the R coding system but it supports dozens of hardware systems especially National Instruments. It makes math and coding easy. I used this in college for a number of control systems classes and experiments as well as some even larger projects for my student job. It is very versatile and human readable with a large support following. I never had any issues with lockups or freezing and it is a powerhouse that cant be stopped when computing. Did I also mention the user support is great and scripts/tutorials are freely available everywhere online. All around amazing software!!

What do you dislike?

When I first learned it the user interface took a little while to learn but it really isn't hard. Some commands took a little while to understand but again the help section and the user following makes up for anything lacking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IT may not be free like R, but it's very much so worth every penny. Check out the NI site if you are using hardware with it. You wont need an extremely beefy computer to run, but some power is recommended. I used to run this on laptops very well without flaw..

"Simple and Effective for Beginners"

What do you like best?

I would not call myself anywhere near an expert at computer programming or languages whatsoever. However, even without this experience, I am still able to effectively and efficiently use Matlab for all of my computational and modeling needs. Unlike other scripts that might take a lot of drafting, editing, debugging, and testing, Matlab allows me to run only parts of my code and write any code ranging from simple to complicated. Although Matlab allows more experienced users to purchase the additional toolboxes (which I hear are very helpful), the scope of the work I am involved in requires only using the basic package, which is already very helpful.

What do you dislike?

Matlab is a bit on the pricier side, especially compared to other applications and code-writing software that are free to use. For that reason, in order to get around this downside, I am particularly keen on trying to accomplish as many tasks as I possibly can using Matlab (which is very possible). Nonetheless, I find that it is worth every penny considering the many benefits it brings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend to use Matlab as one of your first introductions to computer programming. The concepts are very simple to understand while allowing you to get lots accomplished.

Computation and data analysis are definitely the biggest benefits I see with this application. Often times, I am faced with a large file of data (typically in Excel), and must sort through all of the numbers to perform some sort of statistical analysis and further computation. Excel does some of the tasks I need, but writing a code is something I find much more beneficial, since I can simply reuse it (or tweak it as necessary) for whatever application I need for the data I collect.

"Modelling Production Systems to manage production activities"

What do you like best?

MATLAB contains a lot of advance toolboxes [9] such as signal processing, wavelet, etc also great documentation & support. The best part of Matlab is the simplicity with which you can simulate design concepts. You can iterate 1000s of design solutions across inputs with minimal coding. Coding is easy and similar functionality versus other software can be done in minimal lines of code. Also, it makes for easy visualization.

What do you dislike?

Interface is a little bit of getting used to. Also the code editor can be made comparable to others. Also, can be a bit slow at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent software. There are umpteen applications and it is a great tool to have and a skill to possess.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Design tool templates, projects, simulate production systems.

"Great programming tool for beginners and experts alike!"

What do you like best?

I am not very experienced when it comes to programming languages. Many of the other users of Matlab know how to write codes that do amazing things, while others like me use Matlab as a tool for learning the basics behind computer languages. It is really effective for modeling and analysis of data, which is what I primarily use this software for. Therefore, what I like the best about Matlab is its versatility in performing many different functions for any level of user experience.

What do you dislike?

I am not familiar about other computer programs and software, but often times Matlab will work very slowly as it trudges through lots of data. My recommendation would be to use another larger software or program if you are dealing with a lot of numbers or data. Of course, you can always cancel a software that is running for too long, but it becomes a hassle when you are waiting for extended periods of time to get the information you are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend starting with this application if you are trying to learn the basics about computer programming. Since it is more of a computational tool, it is a bit different than other languages like C+ and Python, but nonetheless it's a great starting point.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Matlab for our data analysis and modeling. Whether its something simple like finding statistics for a series of data points, or modeling this data with the use of figures and other features, Matlab has significantly simplified our process in dealing with the large amount of data we handle.

"Amazing product"

What do you like best?

I think Matlab is a very fast softwarwe that gives excellent performance.

The platform is very user friendly and my experience with matlab has been valuable at many occasions. It is very important for many mathematical problems and data processing in general. I like the language and it has been very useful for me to learn it since I quickly was able to adapt to Python and others after many years of experience with matlab.

Availability to solve all mathematical algorithms I have ever needed, I love how easy it is to plot graphs and to access the value of the variables from the console (as opposed to working with Python platforms)

What do you dislike?

Price is high

License is required

Sometimes not so easy to obtain the libraries that I would use

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unfortunately you will require to buy the License, hopefully your company or PhD department can pay it. But in general is an amazing software and provides great results.

"Matlab use for research"

What do you like best?

The visualization capabilities are great, as is Matlab's ability to do matrix algebra. Once I rewrote my code to take advantage of matrix and vector calculations in Matlab, it sped my program up. It is easy to find help in the online community for any problems that you may run into. In that sense, it is very easy to learn the language on your own by trial and error.

What do you dislike?

A lot of toolboxes seem to have very neat features, but are costly. Sometimes the errors given while debugging are not extremely clear, however upon further research (i.e. asking the online community), it makes sense. The layout of coding in general is good, however, I wish the code could be collapsed more than just between for loops.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has its benefits and if you have access to the program, it's great to use. I've used this program both to teach and for my research. The first time I used it to teach, I helped students learn how to program and use the basic tools in Matlab. It was a small class of about 5 students, but everyone did well and learned the language easily. I've also used Matlab for demonstrating 3-D surfaces in Calculus 3 courses.

The graphics produced are very nice and that is the main reason why I've kept my research code in Matlab. The only problem I have is dealing with licensing for running programs on a cluster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wrote an individual based model in Matlab to run simulations. It's able to produce still figures as well as movies.

"Matlab can be difficult to learn but does awesome things"

What do you like best?

MatLab is a is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. I particularly like the flexibility of this computing environment, that allows you to analyze all kinds of data in a very efficient way.

In addition, MatLab contains a lot of advance toolboxes such as signal processing etc. To find analogous functionalities in other languages is possible but remains difficult.

Also, it has good documentation and good customer support.

What do you dislike?

This software is very hard to learn, especially due to the difficult programming language used to generate scripts. In addition, the licence to use MatLab is relatively expensive and there is not as much open source code available because of the license requirement - so not many people chose to use it.

Finally, you cannot integrate your code into a web service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should use this software if you have someone in your group that knows how to code scripts and how to use the MatLab interface.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using MatLab to process large arrays of experimentally-derived data, to analyze them and generate various types of graphs as an output.

Matlab suffers from a significant upfront and ongoing cost, particularly as you add "toolboxes". A single user with 4 or 5 toolboxes may easily run $5000. However, this comes with the advantage of well designed, well supported, fast, and robust software.

If you are used to statically-typed, functional or object-oriented programming languages, you may find Matlab's capabilities lacking. However, it provides a strong memory management capabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid processing of images, spectral signals, and machine learning algorithms for automated object detection and selection.

I don't feel it integrates with other software solutions that well. Would be great to get some connectors into other tools through API.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly using MATLAB for research. Its great for visualization like graphs to see what data you're working with.

"Modelling Kanban Production System to manage production activities"

What do you like best?

The best part of Matlab is the simplicity with which you can simulate design concepts. You can iterate 1000s of design solutions across inputs with minimal coding. Coding is easy and similar functionality versus other software can be done in minimal lines of code. Also, it makes for easy visualization.

What do you dislike?

Slower than some other software (at times). Also, debugging an issue can be slightly complicated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used it in Aerospace manufacturing Domain to simulate the Kanban production system as part of the Program Management team.

"Great for scientific computing and research"

What do you like best?

1. A wide variety of ToolBoxes

2. Large user base support

3. Flexibility for developing new analysis

What do you dislike?

1. High demand for hardware

2. Expensive if not available through education or research institutions

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm currently using Matlab and its toolboxes, specifically EEGLAB and SPM12, for neuroimaging data analysis. These ToolBoxes allow users to both analyze the data using the GUI or the coding environment of Matlab, giving users much more flexibility in various aspects. So I highly recommend Matlab!

"A Great programming language software."

What do you like best?

The feature of help that tells you mostly everything you need to know about a command, code.

Also, MATLAB is a super easy software

What do you dislike?

I dont really dislike anything but it would have been more accessible to people if it was free

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great software, easy to use with a lot of inbuilt packages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I changed a model code from R from MATLAB. MATLAB provides better security as it is a paid software.

"Probably one of the most used MBD tool"

What do you like best?

Functionality and Ease of use.

Matlab makes life for Powertrain developers way more easy due to the library. This doesnt limit an engineer with no programming experience from building a model.

What do you dislike?

Cost; major factor as all the additional packages just keep pushing up the price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very practical and great for entry level users as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Model based development for various Automotive products.

development of complex and time based products is comparatively better in MATLAB.
