The CAD Setter Out - Technical Drawing standards

CAD Standards, Less is more?

We have a lot of customers for our Drawings. From the Architect and main contractor on  site, to our own manufacturing and fitting teams, everyone has different needs and requirements from our drawings.

I'd like to think that we've done a pretty good job of satisfying all of our customers, but have we done too much? Have we been too accommodating? Would a simpler set of drawings be just as effective? I liken it to a Jenga tower. You build it up - and then you start poking bits to see what wobbles!
