The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Autodesk AutoCAD specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Autodesk AutoCAD Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 999 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Autodesk AutoCAD improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 999 standard requirements:

  1. Can a collaboration of management with information technologists continue to work, or is a new cadre of technically astute managers (or managerially astute technicians) needed?

  2. How do you increase your visibility to ensure the maximum number of users, a continued positive return on investment, and improve information sharing in your organization?

  3. What is the part, assembly, or drawing worth to your organization, and would that value be sustained or increase if the product were modeled in your new 3D CAD system?

  4. How many times has management waived the requirement for the drafter/designer to adhere to the standard in the interest of getting the drawings out the door?

  5. Do you have up-to-date knowledge of which attributes of your products and services drive buying decisions and control customers willingness to purchase?

  6. What is the process for Autodesk partners if customers have multi-packs or multiple seats for one serial number and wish to submit only a portion?

  7. What is the appropriate cadence for meeting with providers to review real-time performance data and promote continuous learning and improvement?

  8. Who is going to bother drawing a standard detail over and over again if it is readily available to simply plunk down in your drawing?

  9. Do you know what is best for your workstations unique combination of hardware, applications, OS, BIOS, and other system resources?

  10. Do you install your network license of AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite with a separate network license of AutoCAD on one server?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Autodesk AutoCAD projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Autodesk AutoCAD Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 Autodesk AutoCAD project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Procurement Audit: Proper and complete records of transactions and events are maintained?

  2. Cost Management Plan: Are Autodesk AutoCAD project leaders committed to this Autodesk AutoCAD project full time?

  3. Source Selection Criteria: Can you identify proposed teaming partners and/or subcontractors and consider the nature and extent of proposed involvement in satisfying the Autodesk AutoCAD project requirements?

  4. Activity Duration Estimates: What distinguishes one organization from another in this area?

  5. Team Performance Assessment: If you are worried about method variance before you collect data, what sort of design elements might you include to reduce or eliminate the threat of method variance?

  6. Variance Analysis: Are your organizations and items of cost assigned to each pool identified?

  7. Stakeholder Management Plan: Pareto diagrams, statistical sampling, flow charting or trend analysis used quality monitoring?

  8. Activity Cost Estimates: Specific - is the objective clear in terms of what, how, when, and where the situation will be changed?

  9. Project or Phase Close-Out: If you were the Autodesk AutoCAD project sponsor, how would you determine which Autodesk AutoCAD project team(s) and/or individuals deserve recognition?

  10. Procurement Management Plan: Are assumptions being identified, recorded, analyzed, qualified and closed?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Autodesk AutoCAD project with this in-depth Autodesk AutoCAD Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Autodesk AutoCAD projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Autodesk AutoCAD and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Autodesk AutoCAD investments work better.

This Autodesk AutoCAD All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
