The STEM software annual maintenance fee provides access to technical support and all related software upgrades.

This core support is backed up by our expert advisory services and a network of consultant partners who can deliver complete STEM-based solutions.

Technical support is mostly accessed via email and we contract to provide same business-day response. We also provide hotline support via our switchboard in Cambridge during UK office hours. However, most users prefer to submit detailed written requests by email, or to include screenshots when reporting a fault.

We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards any bugs which interrupt normal use of the software: our existing customers will testify to the priority which bug reports are given, and the promptness with which individual bug fixes are issued.

Our inclusive technical support extends from advice on advanced software features and fault-finding through to advice on specific modelling issues. We may even provide model fragments where a verbal or written response would be inadequate, although this service does not extend to creating bespoke models or making on-site visits.


We have launched a new public support forum which we will monitor to ensure that it answers all the most common set-up and start-up questions

Soft licensing

An alternative access method to the traditional USB or parallel dongles.

Installation files

STEM installation files, release notes, software upgrades and patches.

Using a partition to ease discovery of a model

A collection is a neat way to group elements and provide systematic aggregation across all results available for those elements, and can be nested to form an element hierarchy. We are working on a new partition concept which checks a hierarchy for completeness and uniqueness, and enables a top-down results navigation where you can expand and drill-down into individual branches.

Tracing drivers with smart results in the Editor

Suppose it were easier to connect results with what you can see in the Editor, or that STEM could anticipate which results would be of most immediate interest. Soon you will be able to display results from the context menu for a selection of elements in the Editor. A new Trace command will draw the most pertinent graphs to explain the calculation flow for a series of elements.

Exploring cost-breakdown results in conjunction with template replication

The interface for drawing graphs has been streamlined in STEM 7.5 with dimensional selection as the norm, and more specific Linear Selection of individual combinations when required. We consider the complexities of notation, selection and spareseness, and show that STEM is the go-to application for handling cost allocation and controlling organisational spending at scale.
