Key takeaways

  1. Investigation requests (IR) can be used to track problems with the product, or suggest enhancements to be made, and are typically the first formal step in the change process.
  2. While not all Investigation requests will produce a Change request, they often precede Change requests. Change requests will typically implement the changes proposed by an IR.
  3. Your assigned Investigation requests can be found in a number of places including the Main dashboard, Project dashboards, the Investigation request tab of the Business processes section of a project, and the My assignments tab of the Mechanical CAD plugin.
