Industrial journalist, TR Cutler examined the growth of ETO (engineer-to-order) manufacturers in the recent issue of Manufacturing Outlook e-zine. According to Cutler, ETO has grown because of both customer customization demand as well as the fact that these projects produce significantly higher margins if managed correctly. What has not changed about these ETO manufacturers is that they build unique products designed to customer specifications. Read the article here.
Cutler interviewed to Andrew Schutte, General Manager of COUNTERPART, who shared, “When running an engineer-to-order company it is critical to meet client expectations consistently. At the same time, you must take on as large a workload as possible to maintain throughput and revenue. This all starts with the engineers who must effectively manage job timelines; an expedient handoff and streamlining reliable dates to engineering, procurement, manufacturing, and assembly is a must have. This can only happen with bi-directional SOLIDWORKS® integration, eliminating all double entry without importing and exporting of BOMs (bill of materials).”
Jacket Media is the parent company of Manufacturing Outlook e-zine. The publication highlights current manufacturing trends.
