Engineering Change management originated in document control procedures.
Engineering departments owned all the drawings that defined a product and everything related to them. They managed and executed change. Today, the
scope of change management is broader and much more complex.
Increasingly advanced products that span multiple domains require collaboration and coordination far beyond the scope of engineering. Global organizations and supply chains make collaboration more and more difficult.
Without visibility to who is impacted by a change, their resource loads, what projects are already in process, and other information, organizations implement too many changes at once, creating bottlenecks and delays.
Effective Engineering/Manufacturing change management is critical to your success. You must be able not only to track and address issues and required changes but also to meet the demand for new product offerings. With product and process change management capabilities in Teamcenter PLM software, you can effectively manage the evolution of your products, issues, and improvements, while implementing the changes quickly, accurately, and comprehensively to better respond to your customers’ needs.
