Abstract
The United States Air Force Civil Engineering organization is responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of over $115 billion dollars worth of facilities at bases around the world. Many Civil Engineering functions and offices have procured or are in the process of procuring Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) technology to assist in accomplishing their assigned tasks. Specific areas where automation is anticipated as being most helpful include maintaining facility information, design and engineering, operations & maintenance, project management, master planning, and space planning and management. The actual achievement of these capabilities is less dependent on hardware or software and relies more on a comprehensive and achievable implementation and system management plan. The Air Force Civil Engineering implementation and management plan consists of four separate but related sections: the Benefits/Needs Analysis; the Application/Action Plan; the CADD Standards Manual; and the CADD Users' Guide.
