Glossary Term: Document change request (DCR)

As a part of change management and systems engineering, a DCR or document change request is a call for the adjustment of a system or process in which a problem has occurred. The DCR documents the standard operating procedure, the issue in the procedure and proposes a new plan to change the process in order to mitigate problems.

Change requests generally stem from non-conformities or bugs within the product that are brought to attention by users, development in other systems, a change in standard operations or demands from senior management.
