Abstract: Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is currently used within every discipline of civil engineering. Initially, CAD was employed solely as a drawing/drafting tool. Current CAD packages, in conjunction with add-on or integrated software programs, have the capability to go beyond basic drawing. An integrated design approach uses an array of software applications to assist the user with the design computations as well as many aspects of the decision making process. This integrated approach can be even further expanded through the use of `intelligent' drawings to provide a means of quality management.
