Change Process

The change process is the process of requesting, evaluating, planning and implementing of changes to a product or process.

Usually the change process consists of three phases:

  1. Identification of an Issue
  2. Engineering Change Request (ECR)
  3. Engineering Change Order (ECO)

The process flow diagram below depicts a best-practice, closed-loop change process with activities and deliverables (courtesy of Metafore).
