Rapid change is a reality in today's outsourcing and new technology environment. Visibility ERP supports the entire span of "appropriate" change control; from simple revision audit tracking to tightly controlled change request/change notice procedures.
Change control can be applied as needed to a selection of parts. BOM components, part field values, and part drawing links may be placed under change control.
Some changes are tracked automatically while others can be specified by the business:
Specification of a part replacement automatically generates an Engineering change number for all affected assemblies.
Impact reports provide for easy identification of impacted field equipment, open sales orders, jobs in-process, stock and open purchase orders.
Integrated workflow provides powerful, multi-step online notification and electronic authorization. Workflow is set up and unique to each customer's business process, without the need for custom programming.
