Managing AutoCAD and Intergraph MicroStation Systemsby Eitan S. Agai, Ammann & Whitney Inc, New York City, United States,
Abstract: The reality today is that Computer Aided Design information is being transferred from one CAD system to another. More often, sharing CAD information among the design team requires multiple CAD platforms. In addition, there is a demand to develop CAD drawings in a specific CAD system such as Intergraph or AutoCAD. To respond to client needs, some organizations choose to maintain and support two or more systems like AutoCAD and intergraph. Having more than one system raises the issue of compatibility between different work groups. This paper describes the challenges of managing two CAD platforms, Intergraph MicroStation and AutoCAD. It discusses the procedural changes that are required to maintain multiple CAD systems. It shares management techniques that show how both systems can work for the organization rather than against it.
