GTX White Paper
How to Modernize Your Paper Engineering Drawings
A White Paper From the Paper to CAD Experts

To compete in today’s 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 cycle—design, production, support services—uses 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 today’s 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.
