Kyle writes on his blog (Inside the System):
I wanted to solicit your participation in a survey we have developed involving Pipe Fittings, and how you as users think about them.
Pipe Fittings are a complex beast when it comes to describing them in a short concise manner. Many aspects about them, such as Material, Class, Type, Connection Type, etc., are factors for selection in a design.
We'd like to know more about what is important to you as users, so we can define a convention that best reflects that feedback.
With that in mind, I ask that you please fill out the following survey to provide us your perspective on this matter. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.
For those of you who are CAD Managers, I would request that you ask your end-users to fill out the survey, as they will most likely be the folks most directly impacted by choices that we make.
Thanks in advance to all of you.
