Egan Food Technologies, based in Grand Rapids, MI, supplies customized food process machinery for the confectionery, baking, and snack food industries. The company also rebuilds, services, and supplies parts and auxiliary equipment for chocolate molding, depositing, extruding, slab forming, and baking equipment.
Joe Cisler, Design Engineer at Egan, shared his experience using an assembly app by COUNTERPART ETO ERP. This brief video explains.
Cisler commented, “One of the most useful features we use in the shop is the assembly app inside COUNTERPART. It lists everything that is available and is ready to be built. The users can just take a tablet or a computer right to their assembly area and utilize it to access the drawing documents and the other information to record what they are doing in real-time as opposed to working off of outdated paper prints. It really is an efficient tool for us.”
About COUNTERPART ETO ERP:
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 Sales Manager Todd Clevenger, “When ETO manufacturers improve visibility into project monitoring and focus on challenges and opportunities for improvement, best-in-class lean manufacturing is achieved.”
Clevenger 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.”
