Autodesk® Vault products—Autodesk® Vault Basic, Autodesk® Vault Workgroup and Autodesk® Vault Professional software—are part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping. Autodesk® Vault products help design and engineering workgroups manage the creation, simulation, and documentation process. Gain control over design data with revision management capabilities and quickly find and reuse design data to easily manage your design and engineering information.

Why Vault?

Securely manage your design data.

  • Cross-disciplinary teams can improve collaboration, so design departments can easily create and share information, project leads can administrate access and control, and all members can track changes.
  • Workgroups can maintain control over the digital model at all times, managing access to designs and documentation throughout their lifecycles.
  • Workgroups can centrally organize and manage designs to reduce duplication and confusion, accelerate searches, and minimize risk of overwriting files.

Boost design productivity.

  • Quickly find and reuse design data for easier management of design and engineering information.
  • Revision and lifecycle control tools are delivered directly in the design application, enabling faster cycle times and higher quality engineering data.
  • Because the application can be deployed in days versus months, users can quickly become more productive in managing and using design data, helping to provide a more rapid return on investment.

Share data with the entire organization.

  • Multi-site tools enable growing businesses to connect workgroups across discrete locations.
  • Web client access and Microsoft® SharePoint® integration extend design data reach to the entire team.
  • Advanced functionality enables decision makers to track engineering change orders, manage bills of materials, and promote collaboration through integration with enterprise business systems
