Engineering Change Orders (ECO) are documented descriptions of changes required to a manufactured product or component. ECO’s can also be placed for changes to documentation or procedures.
Best practices in manufacturing dictates that all changes be well documented and a structured approval and implementation process be followed.
Organizations that do not properly digitize and automate their Engineering Change functions suffer from inefficient and costly work processes. Oftentimes, work is repeated due to poor communication or incorrect components being used, thus causing more work and increased customer dissatisfaction.
