Manufacturing Journalist, TR Cutler recently discussed how until recently few ETO technology solutions were truly best-in-class in the recent issue of Robotics & Automation News. Technology which improves the manufacturing process by honoring the engineering teams has been distinctly absent for those managing ETO projects. Engineer-to-order manufacturers have many active projects with long lead times, require project-management capabilities to plan and schedule the stages of a project and communicate to customers.

Cutler reported COUNTERPART automation technology empowers engineers with the knowledge whether a project is on-schedule and on-budget. Automation provides real-time visibility of potential problems or overruns which must be corrected before costs escalate. Only when project management and the ability to collect and report costs are automated, can the potential profitability be realized.
Without integration to SOLIDWORKS engineers must manually enter data into property fields (causing potential human error). Alternatively, non-engineering administrators may manually enter data into fields inaccurately as well. Directly automating to an ETO ERP is so much leaner than placing data into a spreadsheet.
Robotics & Automation News, established in 2015, is one of the most widely read industrial publications globally.
