Engineering Changes (EC) are very important for companies’ competiveness - they are used to improve and adapt products. But each EC also involves resources and effort for the implementation and may lead to consequences within the company. Therefor a systematically acquisition and comprehension of effects of ECs is essential to decide on ECs. Within this work a categorization was developed based on a literature review and discussions with an industrial working group. The categorization sketches a possible “solution space” of effects and was then visualized in a scheme. Hereby possible effects can be captured at one glance.
