Oracle has released AutoVue 20.0, the latest version of its solution for viewing, review, and collaboration on product and engineering data. According to Oracle, this latest major release introduces a new architecture that scales with an organization’s evolving enterprise requirements and more efficiently serves the document visualization and collaboration needs of enterprise and desktop users.

It is the first major release of the solution since Oracle purchased Agile Software almost three years ago. AutoVue is used by customers in a broad range of industries, including utilities, engineering and construction, oil & gas, manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace and defense.
With AutoVue’s open and standards-based integration capabilities, customers can integrate AutoVue across the enterprise to visualize documents stored in various content repositories. This enables information to be synthesized and presented visually in the appropriate business context needed to make effective technical and business decisions.
AutoVue can read files natively in more than 450 file formats and provides native viewing of manufacturing documents, PCB layouts, and schematics, enabling design rule verification, cross-probing, markup and annotation, and real-time collaboration across extended teams. It also helps standardize the design review process, allowing designers and contract manufacturers to cut iterations and get to market faster.
AutoVue 20.0 includes a new built-in offline mode that enables field workers or business travelers to capture updates while working offline and then incorporate them into enterprise systems once they are back online. The performance enhancements in AutoVue 20.0 are expected to impact the way users and their partners interact and work with data; maximizing personal productivity and driving business process efficiencies.
The latest version, released today, is expected to improve productivity and increase efficiency in a number of ways:
- New 3D Walkthrough capabilities support both capital projects and facilities and maintenance operations by allowing users to perform detailed reviews from within.
- New advancements for 3D large-model handling improves how mechanical and AEC customers interact with large 3D data by significantly increasing file access speeds and reducing the memory usage required.
- A new Web services based Integration SDK provides AutoVue customers with a complete, open and standards-based set of integration solutions that supports integrations in any deployment environment including Java, .Net and C++.
- New file comparison capabilities enable users working with 2D CAD or EDA files to more efficiently review revisions to design and asset documents in compare mode, simplifying the revision process.
AutoVue also now empowers new business processes for Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management 7.0 and Oracle’s Primavera Contract Management 13.0, allowing customers to access AutoVue capabilities within their Primavera dashboard. This capability helps automate drawing delivery and printing, and helps enable real-time collaboration on drawings via Web browsers. This integrated view helps increase team response rates and provides accurate information for improved decision making.
