"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. This article gives you the skills to confidently create a full set of CAD standards and help your team of CAD professionals be their best. It outlines the process of installing CAD standards in your company, including knowing when it’s right for you to create standards and identifying which standards are needed.
