d. Schedule of Drawings. The schedule of drawings should have a description of drawings
including, drawing and sheet numbers, ring numbers, and revision status. This information should
be inserted in accordance with local design agency practices. Avoid using words like "minimum"
or "maximum" to describe work.
e. Revision Sheets. Revision sheets should be used to list all revisions to the drawings in
accordance with local design agency practices. The revision sheets should show the sheet
number, revision letter designation, zone, description, date, and initials of the person making the
revision and the checker.
f. General Notes. General notes should provide instructions and clarifications to the
contractor. Narrative descriptions should be used to identify, quantify, and specify the work.
g. Pre-Printed Drawing Sheet Sizes.
(1) The most economical sizes of pre-printed drawing sheets are copying machine sized
drawings metric sheet size A4, 210 mm x 297 mm (8-1/2"x11") , or A3 297 mm x 420 mm
(11"x17"). These drawings serve as a handy reference for the designer at the job site. Copying
machine size drawings should be used to the maximum extent possible.
(2) For small projects, especially when using the Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP)
method (see Part IV, paragraphs 2.a and 2.b), copying machine letter-sized drawings metric sheet
size A4, 210 mm x 297 mm (8-1/2"x11") may be used if this size drawing provides sufficient
space for the information that should be given to the contractor. The letter-sized drawings may
be attached directly to the technical provisions. A document that includes both drawings and
technical provisions is very handy at the project site.
(3) Design agencies are encouraged to develop their own set of standard Installation
Support drawings to meet local design agency practices. Design agencies are also encouraged
to share their Installation Support standard drawing sheets, standard details, formats,
documents, and lessons learned with other design agencies and HQUSACE (CEMP-EA).
(1) Drawings can be drafted by hand, done free-hand, prepared by Computer Aided
Drafting (CAD), or produced using a combination of methods. With the advent of Computer-
Aided Design and Drafting (CADD), the process for standard sheets and standard details can be
economically automated to reduce time and cost.
(2) The use of Personal Computers (PC) to generate hardware schedules, window
