CASE STUDY : Visual Aids & Modeling

  • This case involved creating a model of cable transitions through and under the ceiling joists. While it took some effort, it proved to be very worthwhile in that it provided a clear picture of the key issues in the case. The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words certainly held true in this case.
