Inventor 2016 cascading priority from PD Collection and Plant Design Suite Ultimate 2018 network license.


You have combined network license, which consists of PD Collection 2018 and Plant Design Suite Ultimate 2018 network licenses and see that Inventor 2016 takes a license from Plant Design Suite Ultimate license a head of PD Collection license.


Inventor 2016 will take Plant Design Suite license ahead of Collection, as in 2016 there was no Collection licenses. 
In 2016: Cascading Sequences for Autodesk Products  PD Collection is not even listed.  

However, with Inventor 2017 and 2018 Collection license will be consumed first and then the suite license as documented.
