Like a recipe or business card, items represent things within your business. Items represent the components that the company manages, assembles, sells, and manufactures. Autodesk Vault Professional software introduces the ability to generate items and manage an item master. Within this class you will learn what items are and how to provide both engineering staff and non-engineering (no access to a CAD application) with access to the data. We will cover how to issue new stock numbers and build intelligent naming schemes. You will learn how to attach your CAD data smartly with proper property (metadata) information mapping. You will also learn how to provide a mechanism for exchange of data between Vault and enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing resource planning (MRP), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems. We will discuss release management for lifecycles and revision schemes. You will learn how to create bills of materials (BOMs) for your items. Finally, we will cover change orders and how items are integrated.
