I was thinking a lot of things, none of which where appropriate for a nice clean forum such as this. [Linked Image]

I was thinking the first draws pretty pictures, the second doodles, and the third makes it work.

The engineer thinks he has it right, the drafter, fixes most of the engineers mistakes, and the electrician fixes the engineers and drafters mistakes.

Roger,

Yes, that is what the result should be, when there is good communications, on the project.

A draftsman knows what symbol is used for a GFI.

An electrician knows how to install a GFI.

An engineer knows that an op-amp is used in a voltage amplifier arrangement to remove clamping current from the miniature contactor when the toroid sensing coil detects a net magnetic field due to unbalanced current flow to make a GFI work. But proably couldn't pick out a picture of one in a lineup.

If all three of them were to do service changes, the one alive at the end of the day would be the electrician.
