With the changing economy, manufacturers are increasingly adopting engineer to order (ETO) processes. This way, they can maximize their profits and ensure delivery as promised.
SYSPRO is a major player for providing solutions for engineer-to-order manufacturers, who helps streamline quote-to-invoice processes, as well as improve planning and financial management, the company says.
There is also improved order turnaround and better quoting – not to mention there is less risk for error and better calculation of costs, prices and lead times, too.
Technical drawings and other data related to products are imported and linked to products in SYSPRO, while photos, video clips and other multimedia can be linked and viewed on-demand.
The Bill of Material and Engineering Change Control leads to improved control over product development. SYSPRO's Product Configurator, Estimating and Quotations features provide significantly more accurate quotes.
Additionally, purchase order and SYSPRO's electronic collaboration tools provide fast and secure communication of purchase orders to suppliers. Material Requirements Planning and Advanced Trial Kitting give more accurate calculating over what you need and when you need it.
Further, demand and supply, lead times, current inventory levels and order policies are all considered, and the SYSPRO Factory Scheduling helps maintain accurate and up-to-date production schedules. The Work in Progress module tracks time, materials and overhead. And SYSPRO's Projects and Contracts module provides analysis of activities and costs.
Another ETO product is powered by IFS North America. IFS Applications is a single, integrated product supporting the management of key processes including service and asset, manufacturing, project and supply chain. It is a complete ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution for business needs.
IFS Applications helps users find what they require to do their jobs, which means less time on software chores and more time for business management. It also uses standard technologies and well-known products.
