More than 70 organisations have signed up to use Cadtest, the benchmarking system for measuring and monitoring CAD performance, launched last month in association with The Architects' Journal.The system measures performance by accuracy and speed, via a simple test on screen of basic CAD skills.Users buy a licence and receive a CD-ROM.
Practices which have utilised the system so far include Benoy, Aedas, Stride Treglown, Pick Everard, Pollard Thomas & Edwards, PRP, Ryder and Wimberley Allison Tong & Goo.
Cadtest is suitable for individuals to assess their own skills, but is very useful for employers in assessing potential job candidates where CAD speed and accuracy is important.
For further information on Cadtest, see the review in the AJ (15.5.03), or contact www. cadtest. com.
