An attempt was made to encourage drafting supervisors of Arizona’s industries to point out areas in which beginning draftsmen were weak and in need of improved instruction. These supervisors were also encouraged to express their views on possible methods for correcting these weaknesses that might exist. Sixty-eight firms participated in the study. The study revealed a need for improvement in most of the areas of basic drafting practices. The best method recommended by these firms for keeping drafting instructors up-to-date and in line with industry was through summer workshops of one or two weeks in length carried out in various industrial firms. Other methods leading to this improvement are also pointed out in the study.
