Drawing Management and Document Management Software
The differences between traditional paper-based drawing management software and electronic document management systems (EDMS) is evolving at a steady pace as typical 2d data management environments now need to be able to cope with 3D data and structured data formats.
Data is also no longer only about the detail visible on the CAD drawings or in an office file or PDF, but now even extends to extraction of meta data contained in the model files themselves.
As documents move through various work in progress processes, version/revision states and shared or released stages, data controllers are finding it more difficult to ensure that data consumers are reviewing the right version of the right document at the right time as the amount of data being generated is on the increase.
Whilst document management is highly important across many industry sectors, the biggest challenges are probably faced by the construction industry as a typical project could easily have ooo’s of drawings, and robust file management not only needs to happen internally, but also externally as data is pushed out to Common Data Environments (CDE) where it must be available to all contractors involved in the project.
