Recommend a Drafting Standards BOOK
« on: August 21, 2007, 03:22:06 PM »
I have been placed in charge of creating standards for a drafting department that does not have any documented standards.  What book would you recommend referencing while I develop these standards?????

What kind of work do you do?  Mechanical?

A mixture of mechanical and architectural.  We draw commercial windows, storefronts and curtain wall.

I wouldn't use any book, look at what you do now and develop from there. A good set of standards will take in how you do things now. Change too much and people won't work to the standards.

Your standards should also continually develop.

I found some great sources on the web.  I finally settled on the one created by Harvard to use as a guide.  The hardest part is deciding what works best for your company.
