Q8_How to Perform ECN_High-tech Industry PLM Implementation Issues



We are implementing SAP PLM for a high-tech company which designs and manufactures mobile phones (ODM). Since we are new in PLM consulting and we are facing with some implementation difficulties, we are looking for some solutions here.

Question 8: How to Perform ECN

Customer Requirements:

Currently, customer use a so called Mass-Production Order to guide their plant producing. It almost contains any information that production needs. When a change of material occurred, project manager update the material itself and rebuilt another BOM( not updating the old BOM). Then he or she resend the Mass-Production Order to the plant. All relevant persons get the email. Sometimes, the plant can receive more than 5 Mass-Production Orders which becomes a trash to the plant.

Now they want only the change involved persons to get the change notice and the notice have to be pushed automatically by the system.

How can we perform ECN in this situation? Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards
