Design work: efficiency depends on the automation of this process
Modern organization of design work requiresfull computerization, caused by a global trend that covers all developed countries of the world. At the same time, the nature of the work of the prospector and the designer varies drastically, absolutely different requirements are made. Simultaneously with the solution of architectural and construction tasks, the modern designer should have excellent skills in working with computer equipment, freely navigate in various software, and effectively and timely implement achievements in this field.
Automation of design works raises them toa new level on which rapid growth rates and design quality can be traced, the majority of complex engineering problems, previously considered in a simplified version, are better solved. Therefore, a designer who does not know perfectly how to work on a computer will not be able to keep pace with the times and meet the requirements for quality and speed.
Modern design works are connected with such software products:
- standard office programs;
- programs responsible for computational and graphic work and directly related to design.
Office programs are applicationsstandard character to the computer operating system, which are used in any company for the organization of office work. These include spreadsheets and other applications that are not tied to any of the industries of the enterprise. Basically, this type of programs is used to resolve issues of a private nature, as well as when designing the project itself. In other words, office programs are the initial step in automating the work of the designer.
Design work often requires the availability ofcertain databases, which are a collection of information organized according to certain rules. This type of program becomes important for the designer, since certain reference, archival materials and other regulatory documents can be submitted in the form of a database. To its main advantage is the rapid finding of the necessary information.
Design work carried out usingcalculation and graphic programs, are based on the use of sufficiently large software complexes capable of solving a wide range of engineering tasks. Distributed among users are multifunctional types: programs that have specialization in solving problems of a specific industry, as well as general technical, not related to industries and suitable for performing common graphic and calculation operations.
Thus, the design works that are performed using special software are of high quality and can be performed without failures in a timely manner.
