PROCEDURE MODEL FOR THE INDICATION OF CHANGE PROPAGATION
Engineering changes (EC) are part of product development and are both source of innovation and costs. Their propagation challenges product development and occur wherever there are dependencies within the product and thus a change to one part of the system triggers subsequent changes in other parts. Literature provides numerous methods on Engineering Chang Propagation (ECP) that apply to different scopes and intend to answer different questions. This paper aspires a procedure model for product developers as a guide to decide what method for ECP fits best to a certain application environment.
