Andrew Schutte of COUNTERPART Discusses Integrating Engineer-to-Order with ERP on Quality Digest Live

Andrew Schutte, General Manager at COUNTERPART ETO ERP was recent interviewed by Dirk Dushane, host of Quality Digest Live Video. Schutte discussed integrating engineer-to-order with ERP. View the video here.   

According to Schutte, “In a true engineer-to-order environment, the singular individual person that knows what is necessary to fulfill a particular project, for a particular customer, is the engineer. There is no other method to determine what needs to be manufactured without the engineer’s direct input.” 

Quality Digest magazine and Quality Digest Live presents all facets of quality, including metrology, Six Sigma, lean, inspection, testing, SPC, software, and international standards. Quality Digest offers more editorial coverage of these standards than any other quality magazine or web site. 


Unlike many ETO ERP solutions COUNTERPART is an engineering-centric solution.  Most ERP systems are back-office accounting solutions and distracted by CRM and other operational functions. COUNTERPART ensures there are no features which detract from focusing on the BOM (Bill of Materials) to address the fast-changing engineering challenges of ETO manufacturers.

COUNTERPART enables manufacturing teams to access the information needed to do the job. By offering a bi-directional software solution integrated with SOLIDWORKS® to share real-time information with those who need it, engineers and purchasing have a non-stop and instantaneous job progress status report. These COUNTERPART elements allow ETO manufacturers to leverage the information to improve engineering efficiency.

According to COUNTERPART General Manager Andrew Schutte, “When ETO manufacturers improve visibility into project monitoring and focus on challenges and opportunities for improvement, best-in-class lean manufacturing is achieved.”

Schutte also noted that the project management capability with COUNTERPART enhances teams’ efficiency by configuring the software solution to meet the work environment and specific engineering needs. Every job is assigned to the right team member prioritized by release date, lead times, due dates, and more. Every engineering-focused manufacturer will appreciate the critical functionality focus.”
