Checking of drawings

Checking of drawings

Checking of drawings

I seem to remember, from a previous job, that there is an ASME document defining good checking procedures. I can't find any references to them online though. Am I nuts? Or am I looking in the wrong hidey hole?

RE: Checking of drawings

I don't think there's an ASME std relating directly to it.  However, you could look over in GD&T forum at some of the checking posts over there, for instance:

thread1103-151962: "Checker" Checklist...
thread1103-193286: Drawing Checker/Approver Qualifications
thread1103-167827: value of drawing check
thread1103-216008: Outsourcing Checking
thread1103-305732: checking that a drawing has all the required dimensions

Drafting zone used to have a piece about checking and what should be checked etc - I thought there was a link to it in one post or another.  I think the Genium manual which is linked to drafting zone also has some stuff.
