ECOs on Engineering Items and Bills
Engineering enables you to define engineering change orders (ECOs) for manufacturing and engineering items. You can also mass change engineering bills of material the same way you manage mass changes to manufacturing bills of material.
Engineering controls the access to ECOs and the changes you can specify on an ECO. For each ECO type, you can specify if ECOs of this type can update engineering items. Only users whose profile option indicates they can update engineering items can choose ECO types that update engineering item information. If you define a new bill of material using an ECO with an ECO type that updates engineering items, Engineering creates the bill as an engineering bill when you implement the ECO.
Engineering uses the following four profile options to control the types of items you can change on an ECO:
- ENG: Engineering Item Change Order Access (engineering items)
- ENG: Model Item Change Order Access (model and option class items)
- ENG: Planning Item Change Order Access (planning items)
- ENG: Standard Item Change Order Access (standard items)
