The Post Engineering Changes application transfers engineering changes from the Change File to the Product Structure File. This enables the user to design modifications to a product structure long before they are to be implemented. The Product Structure File itself (and therefore the production process) is not altered until the changes are posted through this application. Changes to be posted may be selected by entering a range of engineering change numbers and/or by setting a cutoff date for the effective date assigned to each change by the user. The application will flag changes that are inconsistent with the current product structures. Despite this, it is recommended to print out the edit list in Engineering Change Processing before posting.
Select Post Engineering Changes from the pull down BOMP Processing window. The following screen will then be displayed:
