AutoCAD and Architectural Desktop are the standard tools. Throw in some 3DMax/3DViz for doing renderings.

comment What kind of skills are required to work in a content pipeline department in a high level role
Yep, I agree, there is a technical knowledge requirement from past experience as a developer. I know a lot of the great developer / programmers that I work with don't have, and could care less about, the skills required to lead groups. Was just pointing out that not everyone is suited for those roles.

I do know that very large companies will have a group like that and have producer/managers. As @Josh had said, someone needs to be managing the tracking/reporting/metrics. I've found that a developer may not be the best fit for that type of role. People who like to write code, generally don't like sitting in meetings, looking at schedules, babysitting artists, etc... :) Thanks for the answer
