Engineering change order (ECO) cycle time in days

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.
