Lean Enterprise Development in Complex Engineer to Order Companies


Maintaining a competitive advantage is paramount, no matter what business you operate within. Engineer-to-order (ETO) companies that produce complex products, usually in low volumes, and with project control techniques, are no exception. A lean enterprise involves the reduction or elimination of any activity that does not add value to a customer. In order to effectively utilize lean, lean concepts must be taken from the manufacturing floor and used thorough the ETO enterprise. This paper demonstrates how IFS applications supports the principles of developing a lean enterprise for ETO organizations. It demonstrates how process improvements apply equally to office-based functions, manufacturing, installation, and service activities.

ERP Systems and the ETO Manufacturing Market Part Two: ETO versus Repetitive Differences


ETO-oriented (engineer-to-order) systems must facilitate the near real time transfer of information and complex product knowledge for collaboration across the extended enterprise. It should especially be suited to organizations that seek to maintain complex selling relationships, such as businesses whose procurement and sales functions rely on subcontractors, channel partnerships or a distributed sales force.

Complex manufacturers produce products that are of high variation, have complex features and options, and vary in end user configuration. Each job is unique and the variables are based on client specifications rather than on the options from the stock. They consequently invest significant dollars in product design and have lengthy sales and Read More
