You write like the sub promoting hardware drawing improvements:

Are you suggesting that programs like Auto/Desktop are designed so that any "Monkey" can create architectural documents.

Not the way I read it...but turning my words around seems obvious given the source.

Why should architects benefit from the advances in technology while those who depend on the documents they produce are forced to painstakingly count items by hand that are essentially already "counted" simply by the creation of the door schedule by the architect.

Yes, architects complete the door schedule, the beneficiary is the sub who can count doors...seems OK to me. If a sub wants to benefit his work by recommending to the architect how to produce a door schedule differently, then prove it and provide the program to architects across the board.

Is it so foolish to discuss a process that reduces (what can be) 200 combined hours of work to a mere 30 minutes of work especially when the results are far more accurate?

Yes, provide us with the proof of the pudding. I am willing to try it as are most others I assume.

Isn't the creation of a floor plan much faster and simpler with Auto/Desktop than creating it on paper by hand?

Not really. I can produce 50% of the documents hand drawn faster than an AutoDesk user can.
