CADDManager on December 7th, 2005

Many of us work with users who assist in the support of our AutoCAD efforts. You may call them SuperUsers, Liaisons, CAD Representatives, CAD Assistance or some other name. They typically do not work for the CAD Manager but are involved beyond the level of CAD User.

Below is a list that I have used to outline the duties and responsibilities that I wpould expect from someone in this position.

  • Represent your project to Management, Clients, and CAD Support
  • Set up project areas
  • Brainstorm new ideas to get things done
  • Oversee Project kickoff
  • Insure compliance with Client Standards

  • Police the CAD files on projects.
  • Keep your eyes and ears open for problems
  • Do not ignore problem areas or people
  • Develop, Refine and Maintain the CAD standard
  • Correct problems

  • Help in defining and refining the standard methods of production

Communications

  • Communicate with clients on Project CAD related issues
  • Pass on information gathered at CAD Rep meetings to your department

Training

  • Train others in your Office
