Oracle Engineering provides a method to facilitate the creation of an Engineering Change Order (ECO) in multiple organizations by creating an ECO in one organization and propagating it to other organizations. This can greatly reduce ECO creation and maintenance for large organizations.

You can create, update and delete ECOs for the current organization, or for the current organization and all subordinate organizations in a given organization hierarchy. ECOs will not be propagated to organizations in the hierarchy that are defined as "siblings" or "parents" but only to the subordinate ("child") organizations.

Organization hierarchy creation is functionality provided by the Oracle Human Resources (HR) product and is available even when HR is installed in shared mode. Refer to "Creating Organization Hierarchies, Using Oracle HRMS - The Fundamentals" in the Oracle HRMS User's Guide.

A hierarchy does not have to follow business lines and so can be defined in any manner required by your business. However, Engineering only supports propagation to defined hierarchies where all associated organizations are in the same business group.

The following describes how to set up set up a hierarchy and perform the propagation of an ECO to subordinate organizations by way of example.
