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:
