Eng. Change Orders
The Eng. Change Order is used to combine several changes. If an Eng. Change Notice is created, it can have several effects. Several departments can be affected. This means that production triggers an Eng. Change Notice and transmits it to the product data manager, who in turn creates a change order and then anchors all further necessary steps.
The fields on the General FastTab are described in the following table.
|Change Reason Code||Specifies the reason for the change order.|
|Change Reason Description||Basic description that defaults from the Change Reason Code, for example a drawing change.|
