Abstract: The transition to computer aided drafting and design (CADD) must first begin by establishing the need and the desired or expected results. The transition is comprised of three phases: planning, administration, and evaluation. Upon making the decision to move to CADD, the planning process establishes goals to meet the desired results. Administration is the plan implementation, utilizing human relation skills to provide staff motivation and redirection toward the goals after evaluation. The evaluation consists of both financial and staff performance. The two performances are related and overlap; however, each must be evaluated independently to properly identify problem areas and good performance.
