CAD Manager's Guidebook with CDROM (Reference)

CAD Manager's Guidebook with CDROM (Reference) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's one thing CAD managers agree upon: running a CAD department is a difficult job. This new edition of CAD Manager's Guidebook helps readers anticipate problems and devise solutions within their daily jobs. Complete with an all-new companion CD-ROM, this guidebook's convenient, 3-part organization explains the role of the CAD manager; details how to create and institute your own CAD standards, policies, and procedures; and offers tips and suggestions for maximizing CAD efficiency. Thoroughly updated, this book now reflects the current state of CAD, with coverage of topics such as networking, the impact of the Internet, plus the future of CAD and the drawing file. A must-have reference for novice and experienced CAD managers alike!

Book News Annotation:

Starting with an anecdote that conveys the problem inherent in computer-aided design (CAD) systems being so flexible that you can create a drawing any way you want, the editor of AutoCAD User magazine introduces conventions for starting such drawings; concepts needed for managing a CAD system (e.g., working with paper drawings, outsourcing and extranets); and CAD's history and future prospects. Grabowski discusses CAD generically, but makes references to AutoCAD and other packages. Includes resources, technical appendices, and a companion CD containing references for creating CAD standards—which, the author notes, vendors are stingy about sharing.
