New Autodesk Vault Delivers Exceptional Value at No Additional Cost to Autodesk Inventor Series and Autodesk Inventor Professional Subscription Customers
Wipaire ( http://www.wipaire.com/) of South St. Paul, Minnesota, manufacturers aircraft floats, skis, and other aircraft parts. They selected Autodesk Inventor Series with built-in Autodesk Vault over more complex and costly product offerings from SolidWorks, PTC, and UGS. "I did not have to take any help from an IT team or engage in big deployment planning. I was able to simply install it across the Engineering Department myself," said Charles Wiplinger, chief engineer at Wipaire. "Now the entire Engineering Department is using it on a daily basis for our critical projects. It has been phenomenal in helping us with design organization, security, and accuracy. Autodesk Vault is exactly what we needed."
Autodesk Vault - A Practical Approach to Data Management
Autodesk Vault helps customers securely manage engineering data, minimize version control errors, and increase design reuse because the data management capabilities are built right into the CAD solution. This approach dramatically improves engineering productivity and accelerates development cycles by synchronizing the efforts of individual designers, across the workgroup and throughout the value chain. Further, Autodesk Vault eliminates complex deployments because it is simple to install, minimizing the need for costly IT engagements.
"With this release we are responding to feedback from our customers to take a practical approach to data management because that is what they need to do. As a result, we have responded by enhancing the capabilities of Autodesk Vault with new features and functionality that can be implemented quickly and easily today," said Robert Kross, vice president of the Manufacturing Solutions Division at Autodesk.
New features such as cross highlighting and drag and drop help customers maximize their Autodesk Inventor use and to associate their various CAD and non-CAD design data together in one place. Users can better manage data once it is in the Autodesk Vault and use the Autodesk Vault for larger teams through the assignment of global roles and permissions, and support for non- uniquely named files. Additionally, Autodesk has delivered new features to simplify the process of sharing designs from the Autodesk Vault using automated DWF(TM) publishing and upload to the Autodesk Streamline(R) collaboration service, allowing users to share their designs instantly with suppliers and partners around the world. Autodesk Streamline enables customers to integrate their suppliers and partners into their extended design teams, and provides online project collaboration, visibility, and control.
