Try as you might, you can't always make people voluntarily comply with CAD standards. So if standards violations are a foregone conclusion, then how can we deal with the violators who make the CAD manager's life miserable? In this roundtable session, we will discuss strategies for finding, understanding, and quantifying standards violations from a time/money standpoint to enable senior management to understand the cost of standards violations and empower you to correct the situation. We will also discuss using positive peer pressure from other users to motivate violators to comply. If you have to deal with standards violations in your environment, come and join this discussion with your CAD management peers and learn multiple strategies for fixing this vexing problem.
