Chevron Distributes Corporate CAD Environment to Consultants
December 20, 2010 (Perth, Australia) — Chevron relies on Altiva's expertise in creating, training and maintaining a CAD standard and workspace for contractors across AutoCAD and MicroStation platforms. Installation of the workspace is simple for sub contractors using the DeployCAD product. Dan Hare, Engineering Information Management Analyst, expressed "finalizing this important piece of work is a huge milestone and I wish to personally thank you for an excellent piece of work. The final version of the CAD Standard Deployment build has been installed and tested within the Chevron production environment and it is working great - as expected! The DeployCAD build will be formally distributed to all existing ABU CAD standard focal points, now numbering 30 recipients and there will be more in the future."
More About DeployCAD:
In its simplest form DeployCAD is configured to automate the process of installing (from a CD or downloaded from a web site) all of the resources needed to establish the correct Corporate CAD environment. In addition to this it is possible to add a CADconform database that contains all the drafting standards and tools. If consultants have CADconform then in a matter of minutes they will have been able to fully replicate the corporate CAD environment, with the added bonus of having the ability to draft, check/ fix and watermark against the CAD standard. If consultants do not own CADconform, at the very least they will have been able to establish the corporate CAD environment correctly and easily.
