Engineering Change History Report

Application Overview


The Engineering Change History Report prints a record of engineering changes made to parent items in the Product Structure File through Engineering Change Processing and the Post Engineering Changes applications.


It provides information about each change, including the engineering change number; description of the change and which sequence numbers and components were affected.  Also provided are the date the change was supposed to become effective and the date it was posted.  The user may choose to print the report and to purge the Engineering Change File.  Changes to be included in the report may be selected by change number and/or parent item number.  The user may also set a cutoff date for changes posted to the Product Structure File.  Any changes posted after the cutoff date will be excluded from the report.
