A drawing can be approved ‘with comments’, which allows construction to go ahead as per the comments on the drawing.
A simple and efficient way to manage the drawing control workflow is by using the QDMS Master Drawing Register.
QDMS allows users to generate transmittals, quicken the review process and distribute drawings among consultants and sub-contractors.
With the QDMS Master Drawing Register, project management staff can save time and reduce costs by the flexibility of working from different locations, fast drawing distribution and the choice to work in series or parallel reviews. Drawings are often approved much quicker and the design progress is expedited.
