Punch List
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:13:32 AM »
Does anyone have a good punch list for checking a drawing for errors? I keep coming across something new all the time or I miss something. I'd like to follow a list until it becomes habitual. TIA

If you are coming across something new every time you check a drawing, you are learning and doing great.

Lists like this are for when you come to work hungover and need a little "helper". 

Instead, make a list of all the neat (if they are) ways different drafters solve different problems.

About half is new. I might as well be hung over about half the time. I'm good in the morning but by afternoon  :uglystupid2:. It's the new baby up all hours of the night. Any day now he'll sleep through the night, but until then...I want a punch list.  :coolsmiley:

The solving problem list has it's beginning as a pile of sticky notes.  :lol:

Perhaps you should wash hands more after dealing with that baby.

I typically do a systematic review:

1. check layout for logical flow, and all plan, elevation, section and detail call outs for errors, scales correct, titles, etc.
2. check specifically for dimension and annotation errors and consistency.
3. check for construction, buildability, and value engineering opportunities.
4. last look over for extraneous errors or omissions.

That is four quick reviews through a drawing set.  Most of the time is spent on #3.
Kinda depends on your work flow and industry I suppose...

I + XI = X is true ...

Our sets here will get reviewed by the discipline head (We are Multi-Discipline firm) for pertinent sheets and by another gentlemen that will review all the sheets in the set for cross discipline coordination.  Which is a very good process and they catch a lot of stuff.  However it amazes me that stuff is still missed.   

Have yourself a list or process to check your drawings but I would have at least 2 other people check it; the very least one other person.

Thank you for a constructive answer!  :angel:

There are only 3 people in my office including me. Our drawings are probably small compared to most others and right now my boss is catching my errors.  :-( That list is what I'm working on creating (hopefully with constructive criticism) now.
