The many years experience in Glyn Shepherd Media goes way back to the days when drawing boards were still in use so we have seen the introduction of 2D CAD and the benefits that it brought to design. We have also seen the introduction of 3D CAD and the way that it can improve Lead times, improve manufacture accuracy and aid the process from cradle to grave.
We have seen and helped companies flourish with the introduction of CAD or changing up their existing CAD solutions, sadly we have also tried to help as companies introduce/update their CAD system but have not followed suggestions and advice and things haven't gone well.
If you can say yes to any of these scenarios, then we can help you:-

If your company is having trouble with your CAD process, whether it's 2D or 3D and drawings/models are going to clients or suppliers with repeating errors issues, our Process Mapping experience and CAD understanding can help you change your process, removing issues/problems and streamlining what you have. Sometimes all that is needed is a change in process rather than and change in toolsets.
The main tool we use Process Mapping to find the traces of where CAD reaches in your company so we can see how/where processes can be changed. Discovery the pain points and the happy places to see what quick wins can be achieved.
Our process maps can start with a 'Top Level' view of the process, then we drill down as far as you feel you want to go and at the end the process map can be a Top down or a bottom up view and once you've see the result, the moments of clarity will plan out your companies way forward.
