About ERP Systems for Engineer-to-Order (ETO)
Engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturing systems support the requirements of companies that manufacture products based on their customers' unique engineering designs. ETO production systems thus assist companies that create products requiring special processes for estimates, purchasing materials, engineering changes, cost allocation and tracking, and ongoing work with customers. A key component of an ETO ERP system is its ability to handle project start and stop dates. ETO ERP applications, like all ERP software, aim at full integration of management, staff, and equipment for enterprises operating in the ETO production environment.
ETO Manufacturing System Features
- ability to control all factors of
project-based manufacturing, including inputs, sourcing, and
resources for time, labor, and machinery
- ability to respect project deadlines
- reduction in the costs of carrying
project-based inventory, along with reduction of production
costs and record-keeping errors
- capacity to leverage a corporate view of all
projects within the manufacturing base

Complete functional criteria is included for ERP systems, CRM, SCM, WMS, BI, PLM, and others required by companies of all sizes. These lists of criteria, which in most cases numbering in the thousands, give you a full view of all the features and functions currently available for the selected type of software.

With over 1000 vendor products available for evaluation, TEC is the largest service of its kind in the industry.

Industry standard terminology aids evaluation process
The language used to describe each category and criterion has been vetted by TEC analysts and provides a standard description that is understood and accepted by leading vendors and consultants in each enterprise area. During the RFI or RFP process, users benefit from clear, concise descriptions of critical functions that prospective vendors can respond to without confusion. This leads to better participation by invited vendors and reduces the possibility of errors.
