Drawing Template/Iproperties

We are going to be using autodesk vault and it is my understanding that vault searches the iproperties defined in inventor documents. Is there a preferred way to set up the iproperties in the part, assy and drawing environments. If I do a search in vault and the iproperty is only defined in the drawing, the main search results will only give me the drawing(s) and I will have to show dependencies to find the associated model or assy, right. If I define the iproperty in the part, model and drawing I will have to fill in the value of the iproperty possibly in three places. If filling in the value in three places is preferred is there an easier way to fill out the values.

 

Thanks in advance.

We just did a similar thing.  What I ended up doing is (as per my VAR) is create a drawing template.

Then check this into the vault.  The setup the data cards to read these properties so that when one creates

a new model (part or assembly) they fill out the data card and it auto populates the drawing TB.

Hope this helps you.
