Change Impact Decisions - Directly within Inventor

One of the tools added to the Vault 2010 products is the ability to view the "where used" status directly within Inventor. This allows you to see how a change could impact other designs prior to making a change. Historically, a user would need to switch over to a separate Vault window, search for the file, and then view the "Where Used" tab to get this valuable information.



Now a user simply needs to right-click the part in the Vault browser and select the "Show Details" option. The "Where Used" tab is now available right there.
The "Where Used" will display any files that reference the current part or assembly in question including their respective detail drawings.
