1. Check references of drawing, sheet and view levels

- Use “Utilities > Reports”- function to list element’s IDLNAME and IDLX

2. Check dimensions are referenced to the correct elements

- Use “Utilities > Reports”- function to list element’s DDNAME

PDMS MODEL Check List

| |

The purpose of this checklist is to provide general guidelines to check a module. Some of the checks are on-going, some of should be performed once a week or when the module is finished and PI is ready to be started.

1. Check section specifications and ploo heights

- Use “Utilities > Lists”- function to select elements

2. Check positions

- Use “Utilities > Reports”- function to select elements

- Position of SITE/ZONE/STRU has to be 0,0,0 WRT WORLD
