Engineer-to-order Manufacturers: Special Needs, Special Solutions

Engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturers operate in an especially complex and demanding world. Not only must they cope with competitive challenges and the complexities inherent in their supply chain, engineering, and manufacturing functions, but they must also work closely and effectively with their customers throughout the entire design and manufacturing process.

Given this challenging, pressure-filled landscape, supply chain management is one of the key solutions ETO manufacturers turn to in order to help them maintain efficient, competitive operations. Today's feature article looks at the role of SCM in the modern ETO environment, as well as some of the leading vendors that offer supply chain solutions to ETO manufacturers.

Today's feature white paper looks at the ETO environment from a different angle, examining the unique problems ETO manufacturers face, and laying out a five step program for effectively automating ETO business processes.
