Managing Production and Development Cycle is very unique for Engineer to Order manufacturers. They must integrate development and production for a more seamless business processes as well as improve their ability to handle engineering changes in development, after production has started.
Headquartered in Colorado, Streamline Systems (www.streamlinesys.com) knows Engineer to Order (ETO), Build to Order (BTO) and Assemble to Order (ATO ) manufacturing. Larry Cohn, Managing Director recently shared that “Engineer to Order Manufacturers face a unique set of business challenges. From complex quotation and order entry process, to long lead times and unprofitable service and installation aspects of business, optimal efficiency is not optional. Capitalizing on every opportunity, while simultaneously managing costs and ensuring projects are accurately billed and collected is the central need of all ETO manufacturing operations.”
