Effective Data Management is crucial. Ensuring all participants in engineering and business work-flows have the correct information available helps reduce costly errors and avoid unnecessary rework. In this blog, we take a look at the top 10 reasons companies use Autodesk Vault Data Management in their design-flows.
Autodesk Vault integrates with Autodesk Collection, Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical, and AutoCAD, making it easy to manage data associated with your digital prototype from engineering through manufacturing—saving time and ensuring data accuracy.
2. Teamwork and Collaborative Design
Team members can work on a digital prototype without overwriting each other’s data thanks to multiuser functionality. Team members check out a design before making modifications, then check it back in when they’re done. With everyone working together, you can better balance resources, speed projects to completion, and meet tight deadlines.
3. Find Data Quickly
Vault uses a range of methods, such as saved searches, to make searching quicker and easier. A great article about searching the Vault can be found here
4. Rapidly Copy and Reuse Data with Autodesk Vault
Vault helps save hours of design time. Designers can stop manually duplicating complex models and instead copy their digital prototype, including all related files and documentation and configure the files you which to re-use, replace or copy.
5. Control Design Data Access with Revision Management with Autodesk Vault
Audit and track the revision history of your data files from a single location. This helps reduce the chance of design and manufacturing errors. Files are securely released and tracked throughout the design cycle, making sure that team members-only access the correct revision of data.
6. Simple Administration and Configuration
The Autodesk Vault family of products provide tools to manage your Vault server, so you experience maximum uptime. Intuitive administrative tools make server management easy for even those with minimal IT knowledge.
7. Share Data Outside of your Design Group
With Autodesk Vault Collaboration and Vault Professional software, you can share engineering design data with the shop floor with the included web client and expose design-related information to the extended enterprise by publishing to Microsoft SharePoint.
8. Autodesk Vault Scalability for Multiple Sites and Large Workgroups
Multi-site functionality, available with Autodesk Vault Collaboration and Vault Professional software, enables companies to synchronise design data among distributed workgroups, extending the reach of the digital prototype to the entire organization
9. Automated Release and Change Processes
Manual processes for release and change can lead to design project delays and shop-floor errors. Autodesk Vault Professional software gives design teams the choice of standard or configurable processes for release and engineering change order management, helping them avoid costly mistakes and remove process bottlenecks.
10. Coexist and Exchange Data with Enterprise Business Systems
Take full advantage of the advanced functionality in Autodesk Vault Professional software with powerful tools to manage Bills of Materials (BOMs) and promote earlier collaboration by exchanging data with manufacturing business systems.
