Abstract:

The quantity of design, drafting, charts and maps required by todays Civil Engineering Squadron is increasing faster than the ability of civil engineering personnel to accomplish these tasks. One possible solution to this problem is the potential for computer-aided design and drafting CADD systems to increase productivity of our existing manpower and pay for themselves by decreasing expenditures for overtime and Architectural-Engineering AE contracts. This thesis determines by literature review and survey techniques to what extent officers in a base level technical design position would be able to design projects which are currently being designed by AE contract. Furthermore, this research determines the average size designers, draftsmen, projects, dollars of a base level technical design section. Finally, this research determines those software capabilities necessary in a CADD system for a base level design section, and determines how many CADD workstations would be needed by an average size Technical Design Section.
