Drawing System Management


Drawing system management enables a company to collate, access, control and maintain drawings securely, quickly and accurately using various electronic document formats. At HDE we are passionate about drawing management.

While statutory regulations currently dictate that all mining operations require a formal drawing system which maintains accurate up-to-date drawings and allows ready access to specific drawings, effective managers already know the cost benefit to their business that a well-maintained and accurate drawing system provides.

HDE’s capacity to fully maintain a high quality drawing management system with defined procedures in place will encourage clients to access, use and mark-up drawings to get modifications done quickly and efficiently. Company benefits include:

  • Maintenance personnel having ready access to drawings providing key equipment information for use during breakdown situations and emergencies
  • Drawings readily available for prompt issue to facilitate urgent assembly re-fabrications etc
  • Site project engineers able to readily compile drawing sets for issue to vendors and engineering and other consultancies for design and quoting purposes

To ensure we possess and maintain cutting edge capabilities in this area HDE employs a specialised drawing management system we have developed based on our extensive experience in the mining industry.

Central to HDE’s drawing system management approach is our use of EDCAM Solutions software. Using this software, HDE tailors electronic drawing control and management system solutions to fulfil individual site requirements.
