Cloud computing can accelerate industrial and mechanical design. It can also bring people and ideas together to design products collaboratively. Its adoption by the enterprise community is increasing opening opportunities for affordable scalable IT infrastructures even for small companies. In this paper, the authors study a system that exploits the cloud computing paradigm to realize a scalable service for designing lifts. In this paper, they present and dissect the architecture and discuss several issues. The system is designed with the principle of reducing the cloud size (cost) while maintaining reasonable QoS and considerable effort has been done to be technology agnostic.
