Engineering Change Management

Improve Engineering Management Through Email Notifications and
Standardized Approval Processes
Quality control is one of the most important business concerns for manufacturers. Sage can help you control production costs by producing quality parts for your most demanding customers. Labor operations and material items are constantly changing as new items are developed, and manufacturing processes are streamlined using newer equipment. Consequently, it is more important than ever before to standardize your engineering change management process.

The Sage 500 ERP (formerly Sage MAS 500) Engineering Change Management (ECM) module integrates with email notifications, providing instant visibility and standardized approval methods for routing and bill of material changes. Any change made to an ECM-controlled routing and bill of material is routed through email to members of an approval group. Each member has a specified amount of time to approve any engineering changes. Engineering Change Management can also be used to track effective dates and retirement dates for each routing and bill of material. Engineering Change Management is crucial to quality control and is a requirement for ISO and QS certification.
Benefits of the Engineering Change Management application:
  • Gain instant visibility into routing and bill of material changes.
  • Improve communications with automatic emails sent to members of up to seven different approval sequence groups.
  • Increase efficiency with online approvals of change requests and the ability to enter notes for each approval sequence.
  • Use effective dates and retirement dates to eliminate guesswork about which version of a routing/bill of material to use.
  • Analyze and monitor engineering change information to gain insights into how material and labor changes will affect production costs and pricing.
