Starting with the 2018.1 release, Autodesk has included three new means of sharing Vault data outside the company firewall. All three methods use the Autodesk Cloud, are valuable, and have a place depending on the reasons you need to collaborate. Whether you need feedback on a design, need to deliver Vaulted documents at the end of a project, or need to work collaboratively on Vaulted documents, Vault now has a solution that can help.
When you have a small team, you can manage projects using CAD software with the aid of a spreadsheet or project management program. You may also be able to generate PDF files for each iteration and gather comments via emails without too much headache.
Design and engineering in the manufacturing industry are becoming more complex while the pressure to meet tight deadlines has increased.
The processes are involving more specialists who need to work on a file simultaneously and more stakeholders who need to review and comment on the designs.
To streamline workflow, manage product data, reduce error, and ensure seamless collaboration, manufacturers are using advanced software applications to manage product data and version control.
