Collapse Expand


CAD standards matter. We are aware of this, yet so few of us have taken the time to develop, document, and deploy the CAD standards we desperately need. 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 fear. We 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. Learn tried-and-true steps that everyone can put to use, regardless of how busy they are. Get supportive milestone information, a checklist to help you go home and document your own effective practices, and prototype standards guides to help you start. This is the class you’ve been waiting for. Not another day should go by without you and your staff having excellent CAD standards at your fingertips.
