I have written a program in mathematica that will do a set of calculations based on a set of parameters provided, and I'd like to make it as easy as possible for others to use it.

What I'd like ideally is for there to be a set of input fields, little white boxes on a colored background for example, for the user to put the values of the parameters. Then they press a button and the calculations proceed, at the end of which graphs pop up and data files are exported.

I have used Manipulate, but in this case the calculations are intensive and take many hours, so I don't want it to try and dynamically update the results when new fields are entered - only when the button is pressed.
