What is PDM software?

Product Data Management (PDM) software is a tool used to track and control product data, usually based on CAD files. PDM software makes it much easier to control who has access and who can change your product data.

What does check-in / check-out mean?

Our PDM works with a check-in / check-out file approach. This means every time a part of the file is changed, it needs to be “checked out”, edited, and then checked back in. When it’s checked out, no one else can edit it. When it’s checked back in, a change record is created that documents what changed, who changed it, and versions up the entire file.

This means you know exactly what’s changed for every piece of your product, at every stage of the product lifecycle.

How does a PDM help my engineering team?

PDM makes your engineering team a lot more efficient because you’re not spending time looking for files, recreating files, reworking them because someone used the wrong version, or exporting and sharing data to teams who don’t have access to engineering tools.

I have a PDM. Can I still use Upchain?

Absolutely! You can keep your existing PDM system like Vault and still leverage Upchain as your cloud PLM.

Are you only cloud-based?

No. We also offer hybrid and dedicated hosting solutions.

“Before Upchain, we had a non-professional paper trail and design control. Now, our design work is like how we do things in our factory — standardized and repeatable. We needed a standard way to make a design, and Upchain provided that solution.”
