I just starting working for a start-up company and have been tasked with setting up a ECR / ECN spreadsheet to track problems. I have worked with ECR and ECNs in my past jobs but it was with a automated systems. I have some questions for the experts here

1. Should the ECR and ECN be listed in separate worksheets or spreadsheets ? I know a ECR can result in a ECN but a ECN can be created by itself. Any advice on how to separate the two ?

2. Advice on what should be listed on the spreadsheet.
For ECR - I was going to list the following
Description of Problem
Serverity
Actions Taken
Owner
Next Action

3. I'm looking for any sample spreadsheets for ECR / ECN tracking

Thank You for any assistance

How can an ECN be created by itself. There must be some driver for a change, and it can include a design or engineering error also.
Once an engineering specification is released, any change requested by anyone including the engineering approver has to follow the ECR >>> ECN route, when you talk a system.
Just separate them, as simple as two sheets in an MS excel file, or two pages in a MS word file.
One is a request anyone can raise, the ECR., and this must be easily available to everyone across the organization.
