On several occasions during my time here at Autodesk, Inc., I’ve been asked: "What about Vault reporting? Oh, and how do I do that?" If you're asking that question too, this is definitely the class for you . . . but with a twist. We're not going to use Vault software reporting tools to do Vault reporting. Many people are now using Data Analytics tools to provide reporting on their data, and Vault software is no exception. In this class, we'll use tools like Tableau and Microsoft Power BI (Business Intelligence) to provide reporting on Vault features like workflow, lifecycles, checkouts, project reporting (entire folder stats), and statistics that talk about data authors and the associated states. This session features Vault Professional 2017.

Have you ever wondered why managing your AutoCAD Electrical software libraries has to be so difficult? What about your catalog database? Over the course of this class, you will learn how to capitalize on Vault software to manage your libraries, your process of creating and editing your library symbols, and much more. We will also discuss the new SQL method of managing your catalog. This session features AutoCAD Electrical and Vault Professional.
The First Order has risen and will stop at nothing to get to your data. Vault software security can be complex and confusing if you do not understand how it works. This class is essential for administrators who want to learn the different security models within Vault software. The main focus of the class will be to cover object- and lifecycle-level security. Learn how object-level security sets or denies access to objects for users or groups. Learn how lifecycle-level security sets or denies access to objects based on the state of the object. Finally, learn how object and lifecycle state security are combined to work together to control object access, which is new in Vault 2017 software. Leave with the knowledge needed to awaken your security needs and restore peace and justice to your Vault software. Defend against the First Order. This session features Vault Professional, Vault Office, and Vault Workgroup.
What does it take to strategize and implement an efficient CAD and Vault software environment? Standards, communications, and consistency: the 3 keys to an efficient CAD and Vault software environment. This lecture is about how to build, implement, and run a highly technical CAD arena to produce and sustain small to large CAD designs. This discussion pertains to Vault software startups; small, medium-size, or large companies; and those that have been using Vault software for some time. This session features Vault Professional, Vault Office, and Vault Workgroup.
A 2D sheet metal design using Inventor software is easy, scalable, and cheap. After the sheet metal design process is complete, production of the sheet metal design needs to be optimized to reduce cost and time. The same part/assembly designs that are created and stored in Inventor software can be used to drive cutting tools for all types of cutting machines. This session will cover the process of programming cutting tools to cut material in the most efficient manner possible using TruNest Multi-Tool software. The specific topics covered will include: maintaining design intent and revision control through direct link to Inventor software or Vault software; extracting 2D flat-pattern shapes from each sheet metal part automatically; nesting shapes together on each material to get maximum material efficiency using TruNest Multi-Tool software; and postprocessing the nested result for a variety of different styles of cutting machines. The postprocessor optimizes the machine cycle to maximize machine throughput and reduce wear on consumables. This session features TruNest Multi-Tool, Inventor Professional, and Vault Professional.

With Vault Data Standard 2017 software, further workflows have been simplified so you can get more with less. In this class, we will cover the changes applied in Vault Data Standard 2017 software, and see how you can use those changes in the context of project requirements. We will see how categories and numbering schemes can play together with Vault Data Standard software, how custom objects benefit from the new Vault Data Standard 2017 software, how with simple rules you can cover typical workflows, and some more news. This session features Vault Professional and Vault Workgroup.
This session will focus on the know-how of the implementation and use of Vault software in an architecture, engineering, and construction company for civil engineering projects. The speaker will share experiences on the steps leading to the successful implementation of Vault software across the entire company. He will specify the key levels of the implementation and use of Vault software, and the gains at each level. He will provide actual examples of how programming can expand the possibilities of different levels, making the work even more efficient. The session will include a discussion of the actual benefits of Vault software (project plus Vault equals X% rise in efficiency and quality, which in turn leads to money savings). The speaker will present return-on-investment analysis results. This session features Vault Professional and AutoCAD.
Sun Tzu posits, “Every battle is won or lost before it’s ever fought.” When it comes to product lifecycle management and product data management (PLM/PDM) adoption in your company, no truer words have ever been spoken. Setting the executive stage, preparing and scoping the project(s), and defining key adoption milestones and criteria are crucial components to transforming your organization into a global manufacturing juggernaut. Experts from Autodesk, Inc., will teach you how to approach the definition, scoping, estimating, and adoption of PLM/PDM processes in your organization. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of how Autodesk Global Services approaches helping you get there with Fusion Lifecycle software, Vault software, and our many authoring tools. Your competitors are all chasing “design anywhere, build everywhere.” We’re here to help you get there first! This session features PLM 360 (now Fusion Lifecycle), Fusion Lifecycle, and Vault Professional.

Join a roundtable discussion on the challenges and solutions for managing CAD standards. Engage in a discussion on how we are, how we could, and how we should be managing block libraries, line styles, and templates—both internally and between organizations. We will delve into technologies currently on offer, from AutoCAD software standard functionalities to Vault software, Buzzsaw software, Network shares, and third-party technology, and we’ll explore the options around custom development. This session features AutoCAD and Vault Professional.<br/><br/>
The future of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is closed loop lifecycle management (CL2M). With the availability of cost-effective radio frequency identification (RFID) sensors to get real-time data, and automatic receivers linked with databases, we can make use of the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance the built environment. To use CL2M in projects, we have to start within the design phase (beginning of life), and then use this data in the maintenance phase (middle of life). In this course, we will model and use data for a tunnel design and construct project to ensure the requirements and the lifetime of prestressed parts. With the help of Vault software, AutoCAD Civil 3D software, and Navisworks software, you will learn how to make use of real-time sensor data inside of your BIM models. Using these tools, you can implement RFID tags in your design (for example, Dynamic corridor solids with property data) and connect to external databases (in this example, Excel) communicating with sensors used in the field to measure construction requirements and feeding this info back into the lifecycle. This session features Navisworks Manage, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and Vault Professional. AIA Approved
This class will cover industry best practices and workflows for 3D substation design projects utilizing Inventor Professional software and the Substation Design Solutions toolkit. In addition, we will cover integration of Vault Professional software to maximize the efficiency of the 3D modeling processes. We will detail processes and procedures to ensure consistency, flexibility, and overall usability of 3D models, and we’ll learn how to change the way substation designs are currently done. We will present Vault categories, lifecycles, and states as a means to demonstrate utilization of 3D model data and how it can be integrated into existing systems to facilitate custom reporting and data analytics. This session features Inventor Professional and Vault Professional.
