Ralph Grabowski - First Edition
There's one thing CAD managers agree upon: running a CAD
department is a difficult job.
This edition of CAD Manager's Guidebook helps readers
anticipate problems and devise solutions within their daily jobs.
Complete with a 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.
This book 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

paper drawings for input into CAD

networking, and personnel in the face of technology innovations
and organizational resistance are presented.
