Manage ECO execution Features and Functions
ECO (engineering change orders) management systems should help analyze the impact of the change across the organization (for example, manufacturing, sourcing, engineering, field support, etc.) and with your supply base. This includes both analysis tools (e.g. for analyzing and quantifying the cost impact) and the infrastructure to route the ECO around the organization for approval. A key part of this is obtaining commitments from suppliers. Once approved, the system should help in executing, recording, and auditing results of ECOs.
