Professional drawing and drawing management increases the clout of a cheese producer
A cheese producer asked Dapp if we could supply a good experienced professional with knowledge of AutoCAD2 who could contribute to the execution of all kinds of drawing work. Dapp then searched its network for a person with the requested knowledge and experience. Our professional works with AutoCAD and Inventor both from home and on location at the client and is connected to the department Engineering/Projects. In this department, in the first place 2D (AutoCAD) or 3D (Inventor) drawings are made for projects to be carried out.
As a second, no less important task she keeps the drawings up to date and where necessary she updates the information on the drawings. This means cleaning up, updating and documenting the drawing file, the P&ID diagrams, but also things like the total layout of the plant or specific assignments such as the design of escape routes and associated drawings.
In concrete terms, this means that drawings or sketches are provided by the client(s) which are processed by our draftsman in existing drawings or, in the case of major changes, a new drawing is created and stored as a newer version in the drawings file. It happens regularly that our draughtsman looks at the situation on site, measures the location to ensure that everything is correct on the drawings. It will not be surprising that the draftsman usually works alone, but there is much consultation and coordination with the client about the final result.
The arrival of this professional draftsman has led to a much better organized and therefore much more accessible drawing file. The customer notices the difference. Since her involvement, drawings are found much faster than before. Because changes are processed immediately, drawings are always up-to-date and therefore have a high degree of reliability. They show how certain things are made or designed. So no nasty surprises. In addition, sometimes the question is asked to design something in 3D. That is no problem for our professional. With Inventor she can draw in 3D. It may be a part that needs to be in stock or a prototype that needs to be delivered to a machine builder. Such a prototype is then drawn in 3D, after which a production drawing is made.
