The purpose of this study was to identify the computer aided drafting (CAD) commands most frequently used in the industrial application of the thirteenth release of the software product AutoCAD, vended by AutoDESK. Respondents were located within the Las Vegas drafting community and nearby areas. The outcome of this study was used to identify commands needed to operate the software at a desired level of competency and to identify any relationship between the release thirteen commands used by the respondents and commands available in the previous release of the software; A questionnaire was delivered to 90 businesses engaged in drafting in a variety of disciplines. Twenty-two usable questionnaires were returned. The respondents rated the use of each command on a five-point Likert type scale based on the likelihood of use every time a respondent opened a drawing session. Frequency distributions and descriptive statistics were calculated on each command to determine the percentage of respondents that indicated actual use of the command(s) each time they opened a drawing session. The command list was then sorted in descending order based on percentage of respondent usage. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
