Autodesk AEC collection is used to achieve the technology of Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM was made to target 3 major challenges for construction industry:
1- Modern projects are increasingly more complex

BIM, Virtual Reality, project management software and mobile devices can help with scheduling, planning, communication and collaboration, which can lead to better productivity.
