As a CAD manager for a bespe furniture manufacturer, I have to balance many tasks. I am required to bill at least 50% of my time to projects. Of the remainder, about 25% is non billable time (Holidays, lunch breaks e.t.c). On paper this gives 35% of my time left for CAD management tasks.
In practice the needs of the projects always come first. I'm currently the CAD resource for two project teams. The drawing work comes in clumps, it is always feast or famine.
Speaking at Autodesk University is the most fun I've ever had with 150 other people in the room ;)
CAD ManagerSo I'm pretty sted to have been asked to speak again at #AU2014 !
This year is the first year that I am speaking on CAD management, instead of on a purely technical subject. So there will be no opportunity to hide behind my laptop for a technical demo half way through!
Just you... and me... for 60 minutes... (Gulp!)
