Are you looking for Vault classes at Autodesk University 2018? Here are all the classes in the Push Button Manufacturing track.

BES219658 – Unlocking the power of Vault Copy Design
Many companies today try to use previous designs of a project or product to try and reduce the time to market or project completion. Vault Professional has a great tool that many users do not know how to use properly or know that it even is a function of the software. This class will show you how to use Copy Design directly in Vault Professional. With this tool, we can select to reuse existing parts/assemblies, create a copy with a new name/number, copy to a new folder, replace parts/assemblies or exclude parts/assemblies. We will also touch on Rule Sets which can be customized very easily. You will see how you can easily take an existing product/project and copy the entire model along with the drawing associated.

MFG220676 – Automatic PDF Creation for Drawings in Vault Professional Based on a Custom Workflow.
Take advantage of Vault Professional lifecycle and workflow tools to automatically create PDFs for your drawings. In this class, you will learn the steps required to create a lifecycle, workflow, and category for automatic PDF creation. This class will also help you to understand the functionality of the Job Processor application for the PDF generation. Based on the knowledge you gain in this class, your Vaulted environment will be set up to automatically convert your IDW and DWG drawings to PDF files upon releasing the drawing files. This workflow will save you time by avoiding manual drawing file conversion to PDF. In addition, all the Vault users will always have access to the latest PDF drawings.
