Well lookee there. The new data management tools in the Vault 2010 products are sure making it easier to manage the release of drawings for production. This is definitely the case with the Change State and Revise tools that are now built right into both the Inventor and AutoCAD environments with Vault Workgroup.
The Change State command allows us to manage the lifecycle of the file directly from the CAD window, and will even automate the Revision assignment process if Vault Workgroup is configured to do so. The Revise command will let us manually define the Revision with more control such as might be required for tertiary revisions.
