Engineering Change Control

a manufacturing module

Overview

SYSPRO Engineering Change Control (ECC) helps you to improve the management of engineering changes to your products and/or associated data. This is achieved through user-defined workflow, steps and processes. It can augment or replace the paper trail that typically accompanies any changes to product design data. The archiving facility enables retrieval and production of prior revisions/releases.

The Benefits of Engineering Change Control

  • User-defined workflow for the streamlined control of product design changes
  • User-defined status codes for company specific requirements
  • Automatic or manual movement between statuses
  • Association of triggers and events for automated alerts
  • Electronic sign-off for Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) for ease of tracking
  • Archiving of versions for tracking and retrieval

Engineering Change Control Features

  • Enforce security and controls in the ECC process
  • Govern revision/release sensitivity at stock code level
  • Keep track of product-related data such as drawings, circuit diagrams and CNC programs
  • Assign product design tasks to specific users/groups of users
  • Transfer tasks between users/groups of users
  • Define new task notifications, outstanding task reminders and electronic sign-off
  • Control structure and/or routings maintenance with mandatory ECOs
  • Define any number of user-defined statuses with associated routings
  • Trigger an associated event when an ECO is moved into a status
  • Identify existing jobs, purchase orders and sales orders relating to the affected products on the ECO with where-used queries
  • Identify affected products against an ECO
  • Optionally prevent creation or maintenance of purchase orders, jobs and sales orders for products on an ECO
  • Optionally prevent stock code maintenance for ECC-affected items
  • Optionally increment affected parent BOM revision/release numbers when attached component version/release numbers change, as long as the parent is also an affected item on the same ECO
  • Optionally allow cosmetic changes to a BOM without increasing the revision/release number
  • Optionally allow the tracking of release when ECC stock control is at Revision level
  • Retrieve previous revisions of structures, routings and jobs from archives for production as planned or as built
  • Optionally allow non-sequential revision or release numbering
