EPDM Vaults, Multiple Locations, Multiple Vaults or Combined

As of right now, the company I work for has three separate facilities (essentially three different companies). Over the new couple of years two facilities will be combined into one facility, the other will remain in Europe. The facility I am at does not use EPDM yet, but soon will. The other facility down the road does use it. The thing common between us would tend to be hardware, connectors, etc.


Has any one had experience with something similar to this? We are trying to determine if sharing one vault now is the best approach, as opposed to having two separate vaults and either trying to combine them in the future or leave them separate. And as i said for the most part, the only thing we would share would be workflow (maybe), cards, hardware, and maybe a few parts between them. We would share the same part numbers and part number logs, but that could be done outside of SolidWorks.


Or is there a way to share/mirror a hardware folder inside of a vault, replicated to the other? So we would always share the same hardware?


If anyone has any insight it would be appreciated.
