Companies often struggle to create standards for their Computer-Aided Design & Drafting (CADD) systems. Deciding and documenting these standards is very time consuming. Pulling together all necessary resources without causing undue friction can also be very tricky. As such, companies often fail to implement helpful CADD Standards.
The AMS team of former CADD Managers works with clients to effectively setup, document, and maintain CADD Standards. We are able to collect information about your company’s CADD Environment by knowing the right questions to ask. After this initial consulting, we use customization tools such as AutoLISP and Visual Basic to tailor the AutoCAD workspace to easily, and often automatically, follow the CADD Standards.
Most CADD Standards in place at companies today exist in a collection of different media. Many are printed on paper and kept in a manual for CADD users to read. Others exist as files on a network to be used with the design software application. More advanced solutions add macros or programs to assist CADD operators in conforming to the standards automatically. We document all of our procedures in either printed form or, more commonly, in HTML format for quick reference.
We hear from our clients that before AMS, even after they created standards, it was difficult to get CADD operators to use them properly. Many complained that it takes too much time or is too difficult to follow. It doesn’t need to be that way!
AMS has consulted with multiple companies to assist them with an all-in-one CADD Standards solution that is intuitive and increases productivity. The AMS team has years of experience in developing CADD Standards and the best ways to implement them. Our team can consult with your company to create CADD Standards tailored for how you work.
