CAD standards matter. Yet so few of us have taken the time to develop, document, and deploy the CAD standards we desperately need. The reason is simple—developing CAD standards is hard work. Never fear—we’re going to outline the entire process of installing CAD standards in your company. This class will show you a framework that includes understanding when it’s right for you to create standards, identifying which standards are needed, and deploying your new CAD standards. Learn a tried-and-true process that you can put to use, regardless of how busy you are. Get supportive milestone information, a checklist to help you go home and document your own effective practices, and a complete framework 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.
