Whether you’re trying to make the setup of your manufacturing plant more efficient or just documenting the office seating chart, Microsoft Office Visio 2003 is a great tool for floor and site plans. Visio Standard includes a limited number of shapes specifically designed for creating office layouts, but you can, in fact, create a building shell for any purpose using its wall shapes. Visio Professional includes many more shapes for depicting home plans, manufacturing plants, office space, and all the related building services, such as heating and cooling systems, plumbing lines, and electrical layouts.
