Andrew Schutte, General Manager of COUNTERPART, knows firsthand the numerous data organization challenges engineers face and the need for an intuitive or integrated solution between SOLIDWORKS and the other departments. The creation of COUNTERPART is a culmination of his experiences, fully understanding what needs to be tracked, what long-lead time items are ordered, and what parts were released to manufacturing at what revision.
Schutte shared, “Working with the COUNTERPART development team as a product owner is the most challenging and enjoyable job I’ve ever had. My position offers a unique opportunity to envision the flow of information usually starting with SOLIDWORKS, working though procurement, manufacturing, inventory, assembly, shipping then after-market parts sales. Customers are using COUNTERPART every day to run their business in a more accurate, efficient, and cost-effective way, being their partner through that process is very rewarding.”
About COUNTERPART ETO ERP:
COUNTERPART is a full business operating software solution for engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers. COUNTERPART Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) significantly improves efficiency, visibility, and project management while reducing human error.
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.”
