Automated Utility Design™ and Substation Design Suite™ now provide support for Autodesk Vault as a data management repository.
October 10, 2017

San Diego, CA – Spatial Business Systems (SBS) announced at the Substation Consortium, held at San Diego Gas & Electric, that Automated Utility Design™ (AUD) and Substation Design Suite™ (SDS) now provide support for Autodesk Vault as an underlying data management repository.  The integration is provided via SBS Utility DataHub™ (UDH), a product-level integration software suite for utility data and workflow integration. 

Vault support for Substation Design Suite is now provided as part of the UDH P&C-Physical module.  This module connects the SDS Physical 3D substation model with the intelligent drawings of SDS Protection & Controls to provide design checking and produce a standard bill of materials.  The addition of Vault allows organizations to streamline the database support part of their SDS configuration.

AUD customers that have Utility DataHub™ Design-EAM module can now utilize Vault as a natively supported design repository.  Enhancements to the UDH Design-EAM user interface allow AUD users to seamlessly store designs without leaving the AUD environment.  This increases productivity for designers and minimizes the need for training requirements in the use of Vault.
