Often when we have created a shop order, we would like to change a work center.
That is no problem, when there is no control plan.
When there is a control plan, it seems to become a mammoth task, involving new control revision, new alternative/changing rountings, conflicting dates etc.
What is best practice on this?

My suggestion is to yes - have an alternate-routing defined in your Routing for the Manufactured Part. Then, include a pre-defined Control Plan with reference to the new Routing-Alternate.
In your scenario, you mentioned that you have already created the Shop Order. If the Shop Order is in Planned or Released state, you could use the Update Routing Revision and/or Alternate RMB option on the Shop Order header to swiftly change the Routing to the Alternate with the other work center.
