I am using Autodesk 3D Map 2012 Enterprise. I used Infrastructure Administrator 2012 to create a File based schema with the required tables and domains. This has created a DWT file and my understanding is if i create a DWG file using this DWT as the template then i should be able to create the features with the attribute details stored in SQLLite. I am also not very clear whether this SQLLite would be embedded within the DWG.
I have an Utility network asset map of a city with OSMM background and Address Layer 2 in UK which i want to transfer to a DWG file created in this template. The source data is a ESRI filegeodatabase format with data held in 30+ featureclasses. I can convert the featureclasses into SHP files.
a)My problem is how can i import the contents of the shapefile into a DWG file created using the template defined using Infrastructure Administrator 2012 above and indicate that the attribute should go to SQLLite or is it something implicitly handled ?
b) It leaves me wondering as why Autodesk is not stressing on the adoption of SDF which is projected as a DWG with relational datatables? What is the intended use of SDF?
Thanks and Regards
It sounds like Project Parsec (http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/parsec/) might be what you are looking for - it'll allow population of a file based Industry Model from .shp (and maybe even from geodatabase if you are on 32 bit and have an ESRI license available).
just if I missed something, but your link points directly to a text:
Project Parsec does not work with AutoCAD® Map 3D Enterprise 2012
What to do now? What info is now wrong?

You should have a "Download Now" button in the upper right. It downloaded for me, though I haven't tried it yet...
