Meaning of ECO, FCO, and TIMA?

» close window

The Question is:

I gather that an ECO is a software patch, but what does "ECO" stand for?

The Answer is :

  ECO is Engineering Change Order, and a TIMA kit is a Time-critical
  Information Management Architecture kit.  Both of these are common
  synonyms for patch kits.  Another related term is the FCO, which
  is a Field Change Order -- from the perspective of you, the OpenVMS
  customer, there is no difference between an ECO and an FCO.
  For informatio on, and availability and email notifications of (ECO,
  TIMA, Patch) kits, please see the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions
