When Rover introduced document management in early 1994, it justified the project simply on the basis of providing an engineering drawing database. The system was designed to allow the print room to scan engineering drawings so that users could access them from the desktop rather than having to request hard copy prints. One enhancement, an improved document management release process, was initiated by a request to export CAD files from Rover's engineering data management (EDM) system into the document management system to avoid scanning of CAD drawings. This presented a problem which made the process an ideal candidate for re-engineering using document management to create a new process. This process is described and the benefits gained by Rover are outlined
