Challenges for ETO & Project-Based Manufacturers

ETO and project-based manufacturers face business challenges that simply cannot be resolved by traditional ERP software. These companies need to be able to provide to customers, manage all aspects of complex projects, deliver on time and on budget–all while keeping a close eye on cash flow. There is intense pressure to reduce costs, shorten cycle times, while maintaining high quality. Finally, engineer-to-order companies need an accurate picture of the profitability of each project in order to comprehend the impact on the business.

ETO and project-based manufacturers typically have most of these characteristics:

  • Complex products, long lead times
  • Design and build to a project or contract
  • Need to estimate and quote to win business
  • Uniquely design and build to customer specifications
  • Need to track customer revisions
  • Purchase material to a project
  • Collect actual costs to a project
  • Install products on customer’s site
  • Need to track warranty and provide aftermarket services
  • Significant spare parts business

User Reviews of Aptean Encompix ERP

Submitted on December 9th, 2018 by Michael Cox

Our old business system didn’t really provide the things we needed to run the business. Over the years we developed our own procedures and wrote our own programs to address those deficiencies

The Encompix team understood our pain. We can produce a line that has up to 12 unique machines, and the Encompix team understood how engineering, production, shipping, billing and accounting works. We could implement Encompix ERP and accomplish all of our goals. With other systems, it would be a long, painful task.

We were worried about the shop floor guys learning the new system, particularly in terms of collecting data on jobs and sub-jobs throughout the day. It required more interaction with the computer than they were use to doing, but it went surprisingly well.
