Engineering Change Orders Overview

Overview of Engineering Change Orders

    Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) enable you to control new item revisions and bill of material changes. With one ECO, you can group several bill of material changes that affect one or more bills.

    You can define ECOs for all types of items and bills, including:

     manufacturing and engineering items

     bills and their components

     planning, model, option class, and standard items

     primary and alternate bills of material

    An ECO specifies changes to one or more items that are logically related to each other, such as a new product introduction. Each ECO specifies changes for one or more revised items and each revised item can have one or more revised components.

    Depending on the ECO type, an ECO can update manufacturing bills only or both manufacturing and engineering bills.

    You can add either engineering or manufacturing items as components on engineering bills. However, you can only add manufacturing items as components on manufacturing bills.

    You can create ECOs for routings. This is the process of revising engineering and manufacturing routings with change orders for both flow and non-flow environments. You can transfer or copy engineering items, bills, and routing to manufacturing as part of an ECO.

Revised Items, Components, Operations, and Resources

Revised Items

    Revised items can be either items or bills. If a revised item is a bill, you can change the item revision and component information (revised components). If a revised item defines a new bill, you can create revised components by copying an existing bill.

    Engineering changes can be defined by date and or model/unit number effectivity. You should assign an effective date and model / unit number for each revised item on an ECO. Engineering uses this information to implement the ECO and to identify past due ECOs. Each time you change a revised item’s effective date, Engineering adds an entry to list effective date changes. You can also specify an early effective date that determines the earliest date that you can manually implement a change. If you do not enter an early effective date, you can manually implement the change at any time. You can reschedule an ECO by entering a new effective date. A date effective revised item can only have date effective revised components. A unit effective revised item can have both unit and/or date effective components. All unit effective revised items must have a from end item unit number specified, if the effectivity profile is set to Unit effectivity. The from end item unit number will be null and non-updatable for date effective revised items. The to end item unit number field will also be null and non-updatable for revised components of date effective revised items. If you are implementing an

    Effective mm/dd/yy Page 8 of 47 Rev 1

    ECO for a unit effective component, the from unit number needs to be specified in the revised item block and the to unit number needs to be specified in the revised components block. There are two conditions under which revised items are not implemented: if the early effective date is greater than the current date, and if you do not have access to the item type of the revised item. For example, if the revised item is a model item and you do not have access to model items, the revised item is not implemented. The same is true for option class, planning, and standard items.

    You can control whether Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP plans your proposed changes before implementation. If you have engineering changes that are firm, but whose effective date is in the future, you may want planning to consider those changes. You can choose to plan changes on any pending ECO regardless of the ECO status. Changes to the ECO status or the revised item status will automatically update the MRP active attribute. However, you can always manually set the MRP active attribute as desired.

    For each revised item, you can also specify whether Engineering should update work in process material requirements. When you implement such an ECO revised item, Engineering automatically re-explodes and updates the bill of material for all unreleased jobs and repetitive schedules for that item.

    Engineering also updates repetitive schedules with statuses of Released, Complete, or On hold accordingly.

    Revised Components

    You can add, change, or delete bill of material components and their attributes. The components and their attributes have the same restrictions as when you define a bill using Oracle Bills of Material. For example, you can only add components that are standard, model, or option class items for revised items that are model items.

    Revised Operations

    You can define an ECO for Operations. You can add, disable, and change department information, Effective dates, Minimum Transfer quantities, and many other attributes. Revised Resources

    You can define an ECO for Resources. You can add, change, and disable resource information.

ECO Access Control

ECO Access Control

    Oracle Engineering controls the access to ECOs and the changes you can specify on them using profile options, security functions, item types, ECO types, and ECO departments. ECO Types

    For each ECO type, you specify if it can update engineering items. Only users whose profile option indicates they can update engineering items can choose ECO types that update engineering items.

    Item Types

    Oracle Bills of Material and Engineering use two item master attributes to control access to items and to determine the types of items that can be on a bill: BOM Item Type and Engineering Item.

    The BOM Item Type item master field divides items into four major types: planning items, model items, option class items, and standard items.
