Autodesk Vault Workgroup provides several out-of-the-box to use and modify as needed. I have created a seven part video tutorial on customizing your own Lifecycle Definition and posted it to Autodesk’s channel on Youtube. All total, this is a little over a half hour of tutorial, so prepare yourself for a deep-dive into Lifecycle configuration.
Also provided is a Microsoft Visio flowchart for those following along at home or work. This is a great place to begin your implementation, by outlining your company’s routing and examining it graphically before tailoring Autodesk Vault Workgroup’s Lifecycle to meet your needs. Enjoy!
