Hover your mouse over this truenumber right here → 33.3, to see what it’s about. Click on it to get more of the story from a Truenumber system in the cloud. Every truenumber contains encrypted “DNA” of specially structured metadata about the number that travels with it, and includes units, quantity, standard error, author, creation date, and more.
Creating and working with truenumbers is easy. You can write them down, like
energy density of gasoline = 33.3 kW h / gal
Engineering quality improves with higher-quality numbers. Truenumbers is easy to install and learn, V&V is reduced, problems with units disappear, engineers can tag numbers centrally with comments or caveats, hand calculations become archived and reusable, more engineering intent and history are captured.
