Mine included, it seems that many of the AU Unplugged sessions had a lighter turn out than expected. Even with the limited attendance, I must say my session provided a great platform for some discussion I am certainly bringing home with me. The concept of a Training Trinity is one I have not seen much (if anything published on).
About a month ago I made a post centered on “Starting a CAD Standard“. I’ll paraphrase for those of you who may not have read that post. My “Starting a CAD Standard” post focused on the idea that the most important element to a CAD Standard is not the awesome DWT you have set up, it’s not the documentation (directly), not even the automated routine you may have programmed. Instead what makes of breaks a CAD Standard is the unspoken (and undocumented element). When starting a CAD Standard one must have a clear and concise goal, a mission statement even.
Different elements of your CAD Standard shouldn’t be established as islands. I can assure constructing bridges between your islands is not an option. Instead each element of your CAD Standard must compliment the other elements of your CAD Standard. While I have always aired on the side of defining procedures outside of the CAD Standard, your standard will certainly imply numerous procedures. For instance if your file management standard is set up to have model files and sheet files, you are implying a workflow in which sheets are generated by xrefing model drawings.
So what does all of this have to do with training?
