Engineering Drawing Checklist

In order to avoid overstated requirements and unnecessary costs in engineering drawing preparation, ASME Y14.100-2000 shall be carefully tailored to meet the user needs. It is essential that the applicability of the numerous referenced documents, especially regarding basic practices, be as definitive as possible. Many users will have limited need for the detail contained in Nonmandatory Appendices B through E. Accordingly, consideration should be given to any application of these Appendices as the user will conclude that the detail contained therein is well beyond their contractual or application intent. The manner and extent of needed tailoring will vary with end-item requirements, the design activity's needs and systems, and customer requirements. In addition, the use of other associated ASME Y14 Standards may require tailoring to meet the needs of both design activities and users of engineering drawings. Therefore, Table A1, a checklist to aid in tailoring, is provided as a minimum for consideration.
