Summary

In this chapter, benefits of the Web for the design process were detailed. Hopefully, you have gained an understanding of how the Internet facilitates communication and delivers a collaborative environment. Although brief, this look at some important Internet collaboration tools for the design and engineering space should raise your interest. The capability to embed and resolve URL xrefs in AutoCAD 2002 drawings extends the concept of collaborative design by making it possible to refer to resources on the Internet.

The case study of Architekton showed how a design firm that has embraced Internet technologies experienced success and growth. The business reasons that led to their becoming a leader in the field through use of the Web tools were described. I believe that if Web tools are implemented correctly, your firm can benefit from use of the Internet as well.
