Raleigh, North Carolina, is among the fastest-growing cities in the nation. In 1986, because of the steadily increasing workload, two staff engineers were assigned to evaluate computer aided design and drafting (CADD) systems that might by useful to the city's central engineering department. Specifically, a system was sought that would streamline the engineering design function and improve departmental efficiency. The search led to the investigation of a minicomputer system, Dimension-II, which runs both drafting and engineering design software. This article describes the city's evaluation of the Dimension-II CADD system which led to its purchase, and the major benefits which have resulted.
