Because architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects can have 200 or more associated files, cloud computing allows for storing high volumes of documents (line work, spreadsheets, PDFs, and other project documents) online, where they can be downloaded, edited, and uploaded. Cloud computing can facilitate collaboration by providing easy file access from anywhere you have an Internet connection. There are several potential advantages to employing cloud computing within the AEC industry, such as utilizing large format mobile printing apps. The nature of the AEC industry is primarily project based, often requiring multiple temporary business relationships with outside organizations. The cloud can be beneficial to these temporary project teams for sharing information over the duration of the project and over multiple project phases often requiring either heavy or minimal involvement by various team members.
