Comparing of the original and new solutions:
Before Now
2 different software with various user interface One software according their needs = easier usage
Necessary manual changes on generated drawings Generated drawings aqre correct = no manual changes
Preparation of new set of drawings takes several hours New drawings are ready in tens minutes
