Purging Engineering Change Orders (ECO) permanently deletes the ECO information from the application. Each business can establish a retention policy after which ECO documents can be purged. Purging old documents reduces the storage space and improves the performance to query ECOs. Business can archive ECOs into data warehouse prior to purging.

Navigation: Engineering -> ECOs -> Delete

Transfer to Manufacturing screen is used to move any engineering item/BOM/routing into an manufacturing item/BOM/Routing.

Navigation: Engineering -> Prototypes -> Transfer to Manufacturing

1) Enter the item

2) Select BOM/Routing if they also need to be transferred to manufacturing

3) Enter new revisions of transferred item.

Click ‘TRANSFER’ to transfer the item to manufacturing.
