This class will provide attendees with a detailed exploration how to use Autodesk Vault software to organize, manage, and disseminate maps stored in DWG™ files. Specifically, you will learn how Autodesk Vault can be integrated closely with AutoCAD® Map 3D software for design, production, and operational maps. We will demonstrate how Autodesk® Infrastructure Map Server software can be used in conjunction with Autodesk Vault to globally visualize the contents of the vault in geographic space. We will discuss workflows that can be configured to ensure secure access to project drawings for engineering, design, field inspections, and construction. Finally, we will explain how Autodesk Vault can complement a GIS-centric implementation that uses Oracle® Spatial or ArcIMS.
Stakeholders in utilities and the engineering and construction firms who support them with design and construction activities; engineering managers, mapping supervisors, crew supervisors, mappers, designers, and planners
Stephen Brockwell founded Brockwell Consulting in 2007 to provide independent business and technical leadership for the Autodesk geospatial community. Brockwell worked for Autodesk from 1999 to 2007 as Senior Business Development Manager, Senior Technical Account Manager, and Director of Product Management. He played a key role in successful projects at First Energy, Qwest, City of Vancouver, and Telstra Communications. Prior to joining Autodesk, Brockwell was the Software Engineering Manager for SHL VISION* Solutions, the developers of the first all-relational GIS based on Oracle. Qwest Communications and First Energy still use the underlying technology developed by the VISION* team. Brockwell has an MSc in Mathematics and a BSc in Computer Science and 22 years of experience in the geospatial industry in government, private sector and technology. Brockwell has been a regular instructor at Autodesk University and presented at Oracle Open World and the Oracle Spatial User's Conference.

Frank has a proven record of success in managing and implementing solutions that model and maintain utility infrastructure, support the design process, streamline business processes and integrate diverse systems.
Autodesk Vault software is an often-overlooked tool that can provide remarkable benefits for the infrastructure design community. This class will explain exactly what document management software truly is and how it can benefit the civil design firm, and cover the steps for creating your own Autodesk Vault software environment. From the initial decision to implement document management, and all the way through development and final production rollout, we will review how Maser Consulting P.A. came to use Autodesk Vault Collaboration AEC in all 14 of its regional offices as well as the benefits gained from doing so.
In this class, we will cover the steps that are required to successfully install, configure, and populate Autodesk® Vault software to manage your data. We will introduce concepts, workflows, tools, and best practices. We will also discuss common mistakes that businesses make when planning and executing a Vault implementation.
In this class, we will take you on a tour of Autodesk® Product Design Suite 2013. We will show you what you can do with this flexible set of tools that are specialized in 3D mechanical design, simulation, tooling, electrical design, visualization, documentation, and collaboration. Using the design suite tools, you can evaluate and optimize machines while exchanging information with others throughout the design workflow. You will learn what you can accomplish by combining the Digital Prototyping capabilities of Autodesk® Inventor® software with enhanced design, visualization, and cloud services tools to reduce development costs and get machine designs to your clients faster and with less rework.
Managing your data is critical, and keeping it managed for releases can be a key to having the right designs available at the right times. This class will explore the ins and outs of using Autodesk® Vault Workgroup, Autodesk® Vault Collaboration, and Autodesk® Vault Professional to manage the release process of your design documents. We will cover several aspects of release management, including how to build the right lifecycle workflow and how to incorporate Vault engineering change order (ECO) capabilities into your process. We will also explore the key considerations for security and access to your data. If you want to take full advantage of all Vault has to offer to manage your designs, this class is for you!
This class will show you how to assess the existing collaborative methods in a Building Information Modeling (BIM) project (Building or Infrastructure) using the Bew-Richards BIM Maturity Model and BS1192 as a reference standard. We will then explain how to identify the potential gaps that could lead to delays and cost inefficiencies and how to eliminate the gaps using workflows and software technology. Typically BIM projects involve multiple disciplines and multiple organizations. To collaborate efficiently and effectively among different disciplines and across different organizations, it is essential to have standard methods and procedures and a common data environment with clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
