Autodesk PDM Vault

Autodesk Vault is a data management software (PDM) that allows you to manage the data creation, simulation and documentation processes from design and planning. Autodesk's PDM system allows you to securely manage, share and track design files to optimize collaboration and versioning in engineering projects.

Autodesk Vault: PDM Software for the Management of Product and Project Data

Improve your management of product and project data in design with Autodesk Vault, the software for your product data management (PDM). Find your data quickly and easily. Share prototype data around the world in seconds. And always securely.

By storing all relevant information centrally, you always know who has changed the data in the Autodesk PDM system.  Vault thus ensures efficient and intelligent data management - from initial planning through the entire design process to production.

Autodesk Vault is available in two configurations, Basic and Professional, to suit your requirements.

Autodesk Vault Basic is only available in the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection and manages your design data for professional data management.

Autodesk Vault Professional includes the full functionality of Vault Basic and Vault Workgroup as well as advanced change order and BOM management capabilities.
