Engineering Change Order
Engineering Change Order (ECO) facilitates the creation of a framework to manage additions, changes and deletions to a product. ECO also manages the tasks and approvals associated with that change outside of the live production environment. As each task is approved or rejected, history is maintained capturing the individual that completed each tasks and when they did it. When all tasks are approved ECO will automatically update all impacted areas (Parts, BOM’s, Routings, Documents, etc.) in the live production environment. ECO allows a company to more effectively manage their change process, reduce the amount of time it takes to implement change and reduce the overall cost of incorporating customer suggestions or new features.
