CAD/BIM Management

CAD Managers can be a designer that has the most experience with the software in use, or a person from the IT group that has some CAD experience to a full time Manager of a team that implements the full range of complex software and systems required by engineering teams.  Wherever you fall in this range there are always demands on your time, and very often projects requiring short timeframes to implement.  Let PacifiCAD augment your team when necessary.  We can provide full service, or ala-carte from many different areas that might be demanding your attention.

Ultimately we want you to be successful in your core business – engineering the final product.  Let us help with our core focus of setup and operation of the software toolsets, and achieve the most value out of the products you have purchased to support your engineering team.  We will typically start with a capability assessment as well as a business process review to ensure we are focused on providing the highest value towards your business goals, and then execute on any of the required tasks below.
