Product Lifecycle Management

4.0/5 (1 review)

Upchain overview

Upchain is a cloud-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution promising rapid deployment and adoption for product innovators across any industry sector. Priced over three SaaS packages spanning Lite, Standard and Professional that scale Upchain's features for greater service flexibility, the browser-based software boasts its own integrated 3D CAD viewer. Model files of over 25 formats can be imported and collaboratively worked on by all team members, allowing for markup, commenting and supporting document uploads. Cross-CAD compatibility then integrates the system with popular third-party CAD software such as AutoCAD, facilitating data synchronization that includes Bill of Material (BOM) being linked automatically to underlying CAD metadata.

Change management processes can be controlled by leveraging customizable, automated workflows for handling issues, RFQs, ECNs and ECRs. Similarly, version control is automated with recorded changes for instant reversion plus the tracking of who did what and when for change auditing purposes. General workflow design and creation tools enable repetitive tasks or processes to be streamlined while also monitoring team member performance levels that can be summarized within dashboard reports that intuitively gauge project status. Additionally, Upchain empowers all team members and stakeholders to work natively within their favoured business applications thanks to integration plugins for Microsoft Office apps such as Outlook, Excel and Word among others.

It gives us one platform to manage part changes.We deal with a lot of part changes coming from our clients. Upchain let's us have more control over the process. We can assign projects to people and be able to track changes and project info.
