Standards! You need standards! Every company needs structure. But what about 3D standards? If you're using Inventor software, AutoCAD Mechanical design software, AutoCAD Electrical software, AutoCAD P&ID software, and/or Vault data management software, standards are a must. Inventor has the intelligence of 3D modeling, assembling, and drawing creation-come and see what we can standardize and incorporate to make the design modeling and assembly creations consistent. It's not just about 2D layers and dimension styles with a drawing, it's about iProperties, intelligence (iLogic), libraries, bills of material (BOM), analytical data, and much more. Inventor 3D design tools are incredible and can be structured so that you're not continually duplicating the same task over and over again, and so that the information instilled in the design(s) is captured properly. Structure repetitive steps with iLogic, maintain the digital BOM, format the parts list, and systematically build standards in a database library. Understand how to incorporate data management into a project's workflow. 3D standards will reach not just into the Inventor modeling world, but further into the intelligence that must stream throughout the lifecycle of a project. See how to capture all 3D CAD standards, and be able to consistently sustain them from release to release, from user to user within your company. See examples of people and companies that didn't have 3D standards and then built those standards into their design workflows. Standards-2D or 3D-are an ongoing sustaining process that can and will benefit all aspects of the design processes. There are challenges in starting the standards, because everyone wants what they feel is correct; therefore, it is good practice to form a CAD committee. The CAD committee is a structures entity and can agree on the proper pieces of standards to incorporate.
When loading data into Vault data management software, several tools are available to aid in the process of migration and data loading to make the process smoother. It is not uncommon for files to be in question during this process as being unsupported data or corrupt, or for them to be missing file references or containing improper metadata. These issues can cause delays in the migration to proper data management with Vault. Adding new data to an existing Vault also has challenges, such as the possibility of duplicate files. In this class, we'll learn about the tools available to transition into Vault, as well as merge new data into an existing Vault while mitigating as many errors as possible.
This wildly successful franchise is back for a third time at Autodesk University. Meet and have an open discussion with a panel of data management avengers from Autodesk, Inc.

If looking to improve the general health of your Vault SQL Server implementation, improve performance, or automate backups, this course is for you. It’s geared towards Vault administrators looking to improve maintenance in their SQL Server environments using SQL Server Maintenance Plans. As maintenance plans are not something that is installed or implemented with out of the box solutions from Autodesk or Microsoft, we will provide a suggested solution for use with SQL Server. We will cover the basics of implementing a SQL Server maintenance plan to keep Autodesk Vault SQL Server Databases running at their most optimum levels, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and beyond. Users will have a base maintenance plan to get started and will walk away with the knowledge to modify that plan to suit their own unique environments. This session features Vault Professional, Vault Basic, and Vault Workgroup.
