Engineering Change Control
Manage version control and updates to bills of material (BOM) and routings while controlling effectivity dates that impact material planning, costing, and scheduling. Engineering Change Control is part of the GRP Manufacturing Edition
Simplify BOM and Routing Revisions
Inaccurate bill of material and routing definitions trickle down throughout the manufacturing process negatively affecting material planning, cost analysis, and resource scheduling. Engineering Change Control (ECC) helps manufacturers to maintain control of master data in a rapidly changing world. ECC monitors the process of changing your bill of materials and routing with built-in approvals workflow to ensure compliance with current customer, vendor, and production requirements.
Key Benefits of Engineering Change Control for your Agency/ Company
Engineering Revisions and Engineering Change Orders
Full control from Engineering Change Request (ECR) to Engineering Change Order (ECO) to updating the BOM. Merge multiple ECRs for the same part into a single ECO.
Change Requests & BOM Comparison
Automates controls and organizes all change requests, plans, and actual changes to a BOM and routing. The BOM Comparison screen allows you to quickly see changes between ECR, ECO, and BOM.
Approvals Workflow & Assignment Maps
Use GRP Approval and Assignment Maps to control the approval process for both requests and change orders. You can choose if approvals are required for either or both ECR and ECO.
