Full Description
'Acrobat® and PDF for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction' is a practical guide focusing on the applications of PDF in the solution of 'engineering' problems which may arise in various disciplines from architecture to construction. Using real-world examples, the authors follow a project from design through build and long-term maintenance. Readers can take full advantage of the power of PDF in an engineering environment by employing: review tracking; geo-referenced drawings; common format CAD and configuration management; reduced review and approval time with better document control; and project management advice. Chapter summaries, example and sample projects followed throughout the book demonstrating the use of the various PDF capabilities introduced and end-of-chapter exercises facilitate self-teaching. For professionals of all walks of life from electrical, civil and mechanical engineers to architects and construction managers with levels of expertise ranging from the intermediate to advanced.
