SCOPE & APPLICATION
-------------------
Intended for use by Clients and Support Analysts

Description
-----------
You can define a mass change to add, delete or replace a component, alter a component quantity or yield, or change or component information.
You can mass change all using bills of material or choose a subset of bills by item range, item category, or item type.
You can mass change primary and alternate bills of material for each using assembly.

For engineering bills, you can implement the changes immediately, you can also report effective changes for all using assemblies or components.
If you are using Oracle Engineering, you can create an engineering change order (ECO) from the the mass change order that affects both engineering and manufacturing bills.
You can them implement the ECO and report on any affected using assemblies.

Bills of Material or Engineering takes into account all the actions you enter to determine if the change is applicable.
For example:
Suppose you add component A and delete component B.
This change is made only if component A does not exist and component B does exist on the selected bills.
The change is applied only if both conditions are met.
Before you can use the Mass Change function you must:
1. Create at least one bill of material.
2. Create at least one change order type.
