How to Modernize Your Paper Engineering Drawings
A White Paper From the Paper to CAD Experts
To compete in todays world, a company
has to survive in a fast-growing, technologically driven environment to produce goods and
services. How does a company deliver the best product or service to market at a fair price
in the shortest time?
To maintain a competitive edge, a company must leverage its information assets which include a tremendous amount of engineering documents. Tools and processes to efficiently manage, distribute and modify
these assets are essential.
International Data Corporation and Document Management
magazine estimate that there are more than eight billion drawings worldwide, of which
fewer than 15 percent are in a Computer Aided Design (CAD) format. This leaves an
astonishing 85 percent of drawings maintained in non-electronic format, mainly paper-based
engineering archives. Considering that each successive stage in a product
cycledesign, production, support servicesuses substantially more documentation
than the prior stage, the benefits of integrating this information grows exponentially.
The need to capture, modify and distribute existing paper
designs within the environment of todays computing technology predates CAD
technology itself. The intent of this paper is to provide an insight into the issues that affect your business and
to present the benefits and strategies for capturing paper-based assets with CAD.
