There has been a significant increase in engineer-to-order manufacturing during COVID and the data revealed it will double in the next five years.
According to Cutler, automation in the ETO environment requires lean and efficient production flow. More than 50% of all manufacturers now acknowledge aspects of plant operations include customization. Given the projected growth trajectory of engineer-to-order manufacturing over the next five years, rapid deployment of focused ERP technology solutions, like COUNTERPART will ensure the high profit margins which make manufacturers gravitate toward customization and meet the unique demands of customers. Automating this process eliminates double orders and ensures engineer-to-order manufacturers optimize operations and profitability.
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.
