  15. 15. ECO Manager Configurations• ECO Manager Provides a Robust Graphical Interface to Identify, Organize and Communicate the Impact of an Engineering Change.• ECO Inspector Provides Designers and Engineers with the capability to visually define and review differences between two CAD documents.• ECO Navigator is a Graphical Interface which Allows Non- Engineers to Browse Engineering Change Information. It’s a Change Browser.• ECO Server Utilizes a Powerful Differencing Engine to Indentify Engineering Changes Between Revisions of Components or Assemblies through a Geometric Comparison Process. The ECO Data Model is then Saved to the ECO Server or Local PDM System for Access by the ECO Manager or ECO Navigator Products.

  17. 17. Customer Success Story• “ECO Manager saved many hundreds of man-years of time through its ability to accurately and completely compare source and target files after translation,” Deragisch concluded. “A key advantage of the tool is its ability to highlight the differences between the two files including sorting the differences by dimensional tolerances. But even more important than the time savings, this new approach provides an independent validation of the translation process that helps to ensure the accuracy of our critical product definition files. An added plus is the time-savings we have achieved in the ECO process by highlighting the differences between the existing product definition and the product definition after the change to identify the change and make sure that nothing else has been accidentally changed.” – Bob Deragisch Parker Hannifin Corporation
