Abstract : The 'A/E/C CADD Standard Manual' has been developed by the CADD/GIS Technology Center (CGTC) to reduce redundant CADD standardization efforts within the Army, Navy, and Air Force. The manual is part of an initiative to consolidate existing CADD drafting standards and to develop data standards that address the entire life-cycle of facilities within the Department of Defense Tri-Service. The CADD drafting standards addressed in the 'A/E/C CADD Standard Manual' include presentation graphics, level/layer assignments, metric/English scales, electronic file naming, and standard symbology. As the manual evolves, it will also include nongraphic database standards that address issues such as cost engineering and specification generation. The CGTC's primary goal is to develop a CADD standard that is generic enough to operate under various CADD software packages (such as Intergraph's MicroStation and Autodesk's AutoCAD) and incorporate existing industry standards when possible.
