Webinar Recording: Change Management

There is only one constant thing in the world. It is a change. Engineering and manufacturing companies are living and breathing the changes every single day. And to make it right is one of the most important things. And here is a challenge… if you do less than needed, you miss things that must be under the control. However, if you implement too restrictive change management control, you risk stopping the organization from innovation.

Last week, we had an online webinar about change management. This webinar is part of the traditional weekly educational webinars we do on Wednesday.

Here are the fundamental of a good change management process:

1- Reasons

2- Baseline of the data and list of changes.

3- Snapshot “before” vs “after”

4- Approvals and notifications.

ECO is typically the process that implementing all the things I mentioned. Well organized ECO process can make a huge improvement in the abilities of the organization to manage changes. Bill of Materials is data that must be used as a foundation of the change management process. BOM gives a contextual foundation of changes and help to trace changed attributes and other elements of product structure.

Here is a video recording of the webinar:

Change management is the basic process to keep track of BOM changes. It allows to accumulate a record of changes, create traceability and always provide correct information to engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and support. It is an essential mechanism that must be established in every organization. However, it is very critical to decide about the right process and the right level of complexity.

Let’s get to know each other better. If you live in the Greater Boston area, I invite you for a coffee together (coffee is on me). If not nearby, let’s have a virtual coffee session — I will figure out how to send you a real coffee.
