Drawing Control Software is designed to assist engineers and the construction industry manage large quantities of drawings associated with various projects.
Drawings are often revised and modified several times, so it is important to ensure that while working on a project, all team members including consultants and sub-contractors are kept up to date with access to the latest version of each drawing.
On large projects, this can often become quite unwieldy and difficult to manage, especially when there are delays in distribution of the latest drawings and construction continues with superseded drawings causing blow-outs of time and costs.
QDMS Drawing Control Software is a powerful solution designed specifically for this purpose.
