Engineering Change

Getting Change Under Control

As product complexity increases and organizations become more reliant on their supply chains, managing the change process and communicating change status across many groups inside the organization and into the supply chain is an increasing challenge.

Ineffective or poorly managed change processes can leave organizations struggling to improve quality, reduce time-to-market and manage costs.
