Conserving the document for future use is a very important task. It was not very common practise in olden days but with the development of technology everything is changing. People use to document things on the piece of paper but there are many things which they can’t do it on it. They started realising it when certain things came up with time. Like doing the editing in the work or carrying it to far places. So they need something which can solve this problem of theirs. With the growing technology the process of digitization started. It was the best method to store data safe for long time and do all other kind of task which cannot be done on paper. It also overcame with all the problem that people are facing in keeping paper work. Many times incidents have been heard that there was fire in a firm and all the documents there were on fire. However old may be the technology, it help it for further development. So keeping them safe is a thing of at most importance.
All the documents can be easily converted into digitized format but when it comes to conversion of drawings it is little difficult. But the things which can be done once the drawing is digitized can never be thought of. There are so many technology coming in which we can not only make exact replica of a thing but can also test them over software. All this can be done but only after they are been digitized on software. The CAD software is the one which is used all over. They help companies to keep the record of everything they have prepared in past.
All the old developments done by a company is an asset to it through there is no representation of it in the balance sheet of the company. So now companies are giving the work of making the prototype of the design to service providers to make replica of it.
Many times some new designs are made taking reference from the previous one so in all those cases lot of time can be saved. We can directly make use of old drawing in CAD and replace the parts which we want to accommodate new. All these things are increasing the efficiency of the firms and helping them to reach great heights. Many automotive, manufacturing and other companies are making use of it.
