How to manage changes with ECM


Dear Guru's ,

I know basically how ECM works, but my question is following:

Suppose you've entered a running change with the purpose of replacing component A into B somewhere next year.

This is entered in the system, the ECM has all BOM's that have this component in the objectlist.

Now the big problem: a new material is created with a new BOM, using the same component A. How can it be assured that the ECM is also valid for this new BOM? Does SAP provide a function for this?

My client is expecting that when the new BOM is created with reference, the change is also included in the copy, but this doesn't seem to work this way.

Thanks for your thoughts!
