This measure helps companies calculate the average number of days elapsed for engineering change order (ECO) cycle time. An ECO is a documented outline of a proposed change. It lists the product(s) or part(s) that would be affected and requests review and approval from the change-control authority who would be impacted or charged with implementing the change. Engineering change order cycle time begins with a request for change from the customer and ends when the change is implemented in production. This measure is part of a set of Cycle Time measures that help companies analyze the duration of the process "produce/manufacture/deliver product" from beginning to end.
Engineering change-order cycle time in days
Cycle time is the total time from the beginning of the process to the end. This includes both time spent actually performing the process and time spent waiting to move forward.
