If you are looking for the best combination for Product Data Management and Product Lifecycle Management, then Vault Professional and Fusion 360 Manage (formerly Fusion Lifecycle) are the solutions you are looking for. While Vault runs on-premise to keep your CAD data safe behind your firewall, Fusion 360 Manage offers flexibility and ease of deployment. And COOLORANGE powerPLM (formerly powerFLC) is Autodesk’s preferred connector from Vault to Fusion 360 Manage. It synchronizes the Vault BOM and associated files with Fusion Manage and extends the Vault change management across the organization.

The connector is up and running in minutes thanks to preconfigured workflows, and the built-in configuration makes it easy to map workspaces, properties and define overall behaviors. Scripting allows existing workflows to be tailored and extended to meet individual requirements, and new custom workflows to be created, while maintaining compatibility with new versions and reducing maintenance costs. If you are looking for scripts or templates to speed up your project development or customization check out the COOLORANGE Labs for various workflows based on PowerShell cmdlets that will get you up to speed with powerFLC.
