Mix and Match Design Suites

Have multiple seats of Inventor Design Suite Ultimate.  Need to add users, but they surely don't need all those features or packages.  In fact, we just need to be able to support Vault Basic and Inventor.  So I _think_ the lowest buy I can go is Inventor Design Suite Standard? (correct me if i'm wrong)  If I add those as licenses, is that a big deal for users to grab part of the ultimate suite when they need it?  Like that one time a week they need to use routing, does it auto grab the add-on (like SolidWorks is set up) or do they need to exit and force to grab a seat of Ultimate?  And is it easy or a pain to force that seat grab?

you install the ultimate package on everybodys machine

when the user launches the inventor product it will grab the lowest level first in this case it will be product dss

when you switch to the routed systems enviroment it will return the standard license and grab a ultimate license unless you have a preimum license available then it will grab a premium license
