"the form, fit, function rule which is considered best practice for all engineering change control."
That's a bit 20th century isn't it? Worse still, it requires proper understanding of engineering practices, and a willingness to implement them (and accept the associated short term impact on costs and timescales).
We're in the 21st now. Things have changed. "Shiny" rules IT, or if not shiny, maybe shouty.
