ECR / ECO define changes to be done

Former Member

Dear all,

I'm looking forward to implement a tool that could support the business to create a change request that would enable them to define the changes to be made.

I've been thinking about ECR as you can define on which object the change needs to be done but I didn't found where to define a kind of list of fields that are changeable. The system would provide the current values and the user can request to change those to a new value X.

Then, approval workflow and then the changes are valid in the system

Is there any functionality covering this?

Thanks

Sebastien

Hi, in an ECR you can determine the objects to be changed, not the fields, meaning that you can point out which objects are included in the change, but not the change itself. The change itself is done later when changing the objects with reference to the ECO.

Hi Mario,

Thanks for the reply, do you know if there is any tool apart from ECR to enable this kind of thing?

You create a reference and propose new values.

Like a planned change that can be approved or rejected using workflows...

There's no other tool.

ECR is perfectly suited for workflow activity, and if you need a form in which you maintain the change content, you can work with documents via DMS linked to the ECR&workflow, or other type of documents/forms.

Yes look under Logistics>Central Functions> Engineering Change Management.

It's possible to configire this such that BOMS, routings, etc. are subhject to Engineering Change in Configuration. i.e. cant be changed withoout a change note. Workflow functionaiity would need a bit of workflow expertise

Hi Amber_Sapper

Thanks for the answer but what I don't find here is how to define that in the BOM I would like to change the field XYZ with new value = 1234

We would like to give this change request to people that should not have to go in the standard transaction to change the field anytime. So if they select a material master it should propose some fields with the values and anable them to propose new values. THis is what I don't find for the moment.

I didn't find any place in customizing where to define : material master fields to relevant, BOM field relevant...

For the workflow this is then easier we have specialists for this.
