We have currently deployed the Builting Design Suite (Premium) and Product Design Suite (Premium) onto our server, with approx 4 users accessing each suite using mobile workststions/laptops.

 

Question: How many users can borrow a license at any given time, say for the weekend?

hopefully that answers your question

1 one person per suite can borrow a license

1 for the building suite and 1 for product design suite since that is all you bought

Thats the "gotcha" that a surprising number of suite purchasers seem to miss.  That one suite license can be used for any of the products in the suite; its not a license *per* product in the suite.  1 suite license for the mid-level Plant suite can run AutoCAD/Mechanical, or Navisworks Simulate, or Plant3D.  You *don't* get 1 license for AutoCAD/Mechanical, AND 1 for Simulate, AND 1 for Plant3D.
