In this presentation we will discuss how to create and store standard parts (devices) into a library and how to build and store standard configurations of those parts into a catalog of controlled circuits. We will also detail various methods for developing a standard workflow, and we'll look at how to hone in on the most effective methodology using AutoCAD Electrical software. We will give consideration to the incorporation of existing (brownfield) projects, and we will demonstrate how to produce various drawing sets once rendering is complete. You will also learn how to extract a bill of materials from AutoCAD Electrical software and convert it into a standard format ready for exportation into a material ordering system. We will place emphasis on a step-by-step presentation approach, and we will allot time for questions and answers so that audiences will find the presentation useful, regardless of experience with AutoCAD Electrical software.

- Learn how to establish a utility standard for circuit templates using a multilevel device ideology in AutoCAD Electrical software
- Learn how to hone in on the most effective standard workflow for substation design in AutoCAD Electrical software
- Learn how to extract and set up a bill of materials from AutoCAD Electrical software into a standard format to export into a material ordering system
Jared Driggers graduated from Louisiana Tech University with an AAS in drafting and design in electrical controls and instrumentation. He has 8 years of experience in electrical controls design, including 4 years with Duke Energy. He has worked with AutoCAD Electrical software since 2006, and with Vault software since 2008. He has worked in the field (terminating, installing, and troubleshooting controls equipment) and in the electrical controls design in the gas and oil industry, pharmaceuticals, lime injection technology, research and development in medical technology, and substations for 4 years. At Duke Energy he is currently responsible for standardizing the use of AutoCAD Electrical software and an accommodating Vault software and Maximo strategy to standardize Duke’s standard substation design practices, with a focus on utility industry standards and practices. Jared is also the father of 2 boys.
