Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Looks at Changes in Engineer to Order ETO ERP Manufacturing Technology

According to manufacturing journalist TR Cutler, Engineering to order (ETO) ERP software manage production operations and related activities for companies manufacturing custom products with unique engineering specifications. ETO ERP systems are used to control and allocate resources, plan, and implement production schedules, and deliver custom products. This type of software can be used across a company, but it is critical for manufacturing operations. Production managers and shop floor employees use this type of software to manage manufacturing activities and monitor the quality of the finished products. Inventory and logistics managers use ETO ERP tools to maintain the inventory level required for production and plan transportation for finished products. Other departments may also benefit from ETO ERP software, including sales (by configuring custom products based on specific customer needs) and accounting (by tracking production costs).

ETO ERP software, according to Cutler who is authoring a significant ETO feature article series, will look at how best-in-class solutions provide advanced product configuration features to create custom products, including features to calculate costs and prices for custom products and determine the inventory and the human resources required to fulfill demand.
