Engineering Change Management


TriMin’s ECR/ECN Solution provides a structured way to capture initial Engineering Change Requests (ECR) from any source, including quality, shop floor, customer, and engineering. ECR/ECN Solution helps manage these changes through the review and approval cycle into an ECN. You can customize work flows to support your processes, and use this tool to alert and notify each area, as well as track changes through the review cycle.

Built using the Infor Development Framework (IDF), this solution works hand-in-hand with EPDM, and your other ERP data (inventory, orders, etc.) to support most activity around ECN/ECR including sign-off, approval, containment, and disposition. It also can be customized using the IDF Technology stack to suit any unique requirements you may have. This product can be extended in Net Link and the new Ming.le foundation workflow as well.
