Drafting is a type of graphic communication. Business and industry use drafting to translate ideas and concepts into working plans for something that can be produced or built. Computer drafting and design is one method to produce drawings in traditional design and drafting fields. The availability of computer-aided drafting (CAD) systems has enabled even small drafting firms to utilize computers for drafting and design.

Engineers, architects and designers provide their ideas, sketches and specifications to drafters. The drafters use that information to produce working plans that detail how to make the product.
