This paper describes the implementation of CAD techniques in two major design areas within the W S Atkins Group, namely, building design and highways design. The characteristics of the two systems, BDS and MOSS, are described briefly and the circumstances necessary to their successful use are set out. The paper concludes with some more general comments about the impact of CAD techniques on the design process based upon four years practical experience within the Group.
