...and someone else updates them for only a few minutes. Then replaced my name with his name on the drawings. That means he takes the credit for most or all of the work I did.
I think that once the first revision of a drawing has been done the "drawn by" name should not change. If this was pre-release, then I don't know. As far as "fairness", the way you describe doesn't sound fair. But if two people work on the same drawing I don't know how you would (or even if you should) indicate that on a drawing. Your supervisor should come up with a better way of gauging everyone's work than by whose name is on each drawing.
He boned you.
Our template has both a "Drawn by" box and a "Last modified by" one.
Both are tied to custom properties in our parts & assemblies.
Also, once you finish a piece of work, save as a PDF so you have proof you did the work.
I am only too relieved when someone else takes responsibility for any of my drawings - Let's say I'm not the world's best draughtsman!
Ha ha pass on the blame when the holes don't line up.
Friends like that you don't need enemies
If you look at business as teamwork then why worry?
As in why worry whose name is on the drawing.
Because a lot of drafters are graded on throughput, as well as accuracy.

Change it back to your name. And tell him not to do that again.
Agreed, and discuss it with your manger.
Is there a rule in ANSI or ASME about this?
From the Genium Drafting Manual, which is derived from ASME:
Drawn by name on our drawings never changes.
Ecn's/drawing changes have a seperate initial box in the revision table.
Even if we redraw from autocad or a hand drawing to solidworks, drawn by name never changes.
a.) If your boss is not aware of what work you have done, you have bigger problems than whose initials are on the drawing.
2.) Drawings aren't like film credits. Your career will not be harmed in any way.
iii.) Drawings are like film credits. No one reads them.
Do you have the original you can show your boss if they care? Life is not fair, so the workplace isn't either.
Typical Co-Worker Greedy --
Look what I got done boss, till everyone else is either demoted or quits - He gets a raise and promotion and at the end the owner realizes he made a huge mistake.........
This I have seen happen in a lot of different places - unfortunately........
I'll change the "drawn by" name if I'm using an existing drawing as a starting point, which is pretty rare. That way people will know who to go to for questions or corrections. If I'm modifying something then I will just use my name in the revisions section. What I usually look at is the "feature properties" in the model parts to see who originally made that feature.
A drawing should keep the original names and date forDrafter, Checker, Eng. & Mfg approval.
Unfortunately my company don’t keep History.
However in the Rev. Block there are 2 columns missing, for Rev. By and Date, where should be the name and date of the person doing a revision. But per attached file they don't show the 2 extra columns.
