Engineering Change Order Services

Manage your engineering changes with ECR, ECO, and ECN and boost your design and manufacturing productivity at cost-effective prices

Even the best technical design has some scope for error, defect, or improvement which gives rise to the need for corrective measures. To ensure sound product development and a sustainable modification life-cycle, an Engineering Change Order is a crucial document. Quite literally, it gets all the stakeholders on the same page and helps choose the most conclusive approach to bring about the changes.

Flatworld is an ECO engineering change order service providing company that specializes in higher-order change management of products, components, assemblies, and manufacturing processes. Our team combines experts from technical, finance, consulting, and management backgrounds to offer the most accurate and effective engineering change solutions. If widespread experience and unrivaled expertise are what you are looking for, you are at the right place.

Our Engineering Change Order Services

A product that is already on the market could be rejected by the masses for its unreasonable price, unfamiliar make, or uncompelling features. A product that is still in the design or production process can prove to be unsustainable or unstandardized. Regardless of the position of the product in its life cycle, Flatworld specializes in finding the core of the problem and brings it to resolution through our engineering change order services.

Our engineering change order and management services include -

  1. Design and Model Changes

Our Engineering Change Order Process

Irrespective of the industry, domain, or nature of changes required, engineering change management predominantly works around developing three documents - ECR, ECO, and the ECN. From identifying the problem at the grass-root level to providing complete support during execution, here's a step-by-step break-up of how we operate -


01. Identifying the Problem

We conduct a high-level assessment of the product/process to identify the areas that require changes. Our team also determines the extent of change and the approach of correction/ replacement


02. Developing an ECR

An Engineering Change Request is raised to assist the change execution. Herein we list all stakeholders involved, resources needed, costs, benefits, and risks


03. Review and Approval of ECR

Our sitting review committee assesses the challenge in tandem with the engineers on the client execution side. Through this iterative process, we reach a consensus on the final executable approach


04. Developing an ECO

We combine the modifications approved in the previous step with BOMs, task lists, technical designs, and other detailed particulars in an Engineering Change Order that equips the final execution


05. Review and Approval of ECO

This step is for the final ECO draft to be double-checked for all factors one last time and get approval from the senior management


06. Drafting and Circulating the ECN

Finally, we raise the Engineering Change Notice that is meant to intimate all stakeholders of the changes and the corresponding time slots. We make sure everyone is prepared in time


07. Execution Support

Throughout the change implementation process, our team is on stand-by for any assistance - technical or communicative - as and when required
