System Changeover means the management of change of systems and processes in a workspace without disrupting the organization’s regular operations. Several components of the systems transform during a system changeover, and they are usually linked to other systems. As a result, extra steps are made to ensure that no mistakes occur during this stage.
When executing a system changeover, there are three techniques to choose from:
Direct Changeover –
The systems are switched over as quickly as feasible, and the new system takes over immediately while the old one is shut down.
Parallel Running –
For a small period, the organization uses both new and old systems and then switches to the new one if it proves to be more efficient.
Phased Implementation –
In this situation, the systems are modified in stages so that work is not impeded.
