What is a Manufacturing Change Process?

Manufacturing Change Process Definition

Manufacturing change process is a subset of engineering change management. Engineering change management involves creating, reviewing, and gaining formal approval for engineering change requests (ECRs), engineering change orders (ECOs), and engineering change notifications (ECNs). It also encompasses the process to identify, review, and approve a manufacturer’s parts.

A manufacturing change order (MCO) is used to make a manufacturing change to a part or product. This typically does not involve a design change to a part or product. An example is a change to the approved manufacturer list (AML) or a change in the manufacturing processes used to produce a part. If a MCO does require a design change it is often accompanied by an ECO.

A manufacturing change request (MCR) is used to propose a manufacturing change that does not require a design change to an item or to product design.
