New, unified product offering for all your PDM & PLM needs.

On August 7, 2022, Autodesk will begin offering Fusion 360 Manage with Upchain, a unified product offering for all your cloud PDM & PLM needs. With the unification of Fusion 360 Manage and Upchain, the purchase of standalone licenses of these products will no longer be available – instead, customers are able to purchase a single, comprehensive, full cloud-based PDM & PLM solution.

Manufacturing today demands a product design solution that combines both PDM & PLM; Fusion 360 Manage with Upchain gives businesses improved collaboration, product development, and supply chain agility while reducing non-value-added processes and product errors to get products to market faster.
