We have the best intentions; we say we will "get to it when things slow down." But it just doesn't happen. The reason is simple: developing CAD standards is hard work. Never fearwe are going to outline the entire process of installing CAD standards in your company. This class will show you the way, including knowing when it is right for you to create standards, identifying which standards are needed, and deploying your new CAD standards.
