This paper explores the question of how to most efficiently streamline engineering-CAD workflows within firms by assigning dedicated geometric design software to those doing engineering & to leave CAD exclusively to those doing drafting. This paper evaluates different industry standard software tools, associated software workflows, and the associated cost/benefit relationships. It proposes a workflow which incorporates the use of RoadEng civil design software alongside a CAD-based system, which ultimately leads to a more efficient and cost-effective design workflow.
