Design Web Format
 .DWF file
 Design Web Format (DWF) is a secure file format developed by
Autodesk for the efficient distribution and communication of rich
design data to anyone who needs to view ,review, or print design files.
 Without the Team members needing to know AutoCAD or other design
software.

Tools in Autodesk Vault
Some core Data Management tools built into
Autodesk Vault are
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
File Management tools (Check-In/Check-Out File Control)
Data Reuse tools
Versions and Revisions
Lifecycles
Simple Administration and Configuration tools
Bill of Material Management
Engineering Change Management or Change Orders
14
File Management tools
Check-in/Check-out file control
•
Write Enable
Check-out a file from vault (Edit & Make changes)
in Host Application
Save then
(copies file to local drive
C:\vaultworkspace…)
Check-in to vault
(File gets off the hard drive)
• This above transition or process gives Version 1 of the file.
• Version is the iteration of the design.
• Copy ,reuse and replace files to and fro from vault into Vault client.
15
Categories and Rules
•
•
Categories classifies different types of files and folders and also automatically
assigns their behavior.
Gives high level of consistency and completeness to the data.

Revision Management
• Revision is the combination of all the versions put
together.
• Track and manage Vaulted design files using Revision
Schemes.
• Record , Review and Retrieve revision history directly
on files.
Bump from
• Revision A
Revision B
OR
• Revision 1
Revision 2
17
Lifecycles
Life cycle management
• Enables you to set uniform behaviors to files
• Allows you to Configure the transitions and states of the files.

Bill of Material Management
• The BOM (bill of materials) is the single source for a list of
assembly parts and component quantities.

• “Autodesk Vault uses an Engineering Change Order or
Engineering Change Notice to record events in a change
management cycle and controls how design changes are
managed and released”.

DM Without Autodesk Vault
Some Causes
•
•
•
•
•
Multiple versions of a file stored in multiple locations.
Users save copies to their My Documents folders.
No Historical Versions are saved for reference.
No Electronic Knowledge of where parts are used.
Secure access to files are managed through windows explorer.
Some Effects
•
•
•
•
The wrong part is manufactured /installed-Costly rework.
Designers spend valuable time searching for data.
Copying existing design data is done through manual processes.
Changes can be made “at will” to released data.
