Are you Engineer to Order (ETO)?

Is the custom and engineering-heavy nature of your configuration process putting increasing strain on your engineering and manufacturing teams?

Do these ETO challenges sound familiar?

  • Is your product manufactured and assembled in low quantities?
  • Do you have limited or individual customer specifications?
  • Are outputs subject to large cost penalties for lateness?

You are not alone

  • 25% of North American manufacturing companies are ETO.
  • ETO companies are growing at a rate of 20% annually.
  • For Engineer to Order, engineering is the largest controllable consumer of lead time taking up to 50% of the total time.
