Engineer to order (ETO) is a type of manufacturing process. The process begins when the company receives a sales order with the specifications for a new product. Manufacturers design, engineer and produce unique products from start to finish for customers.
During ETO, customer’s work with the manufacturing team to produce the end result. ETO is usually used to produce complex or specialist products. These can include specialist vehicles, electronics, machinery and industrial cranes. It is common practice in the aerospace, defence, agriculture, software and energy industries.
Lean manufacturing involves doing more with less. This is the process of eliminating or reducing waste that does not add value to the end product. Waste can occur during customer service, design, product manufacturing and distribution. It is all about cutting the cost of producing high-quality products before they go to market.
Make to order (MTO) is exactly that. It is a manufacturing process that allows customers to order customised products. Rather than making a product and waiting for it to sell, the customer orders exactly what they want. The MTO process only starts after receiving a specific order for a product.

In Manufacturing (like professional sports), its all about minimising mistakes. Mistakes cost you the game. So it is unforgivable for software to 'allow' duplicate entries, accidental keying mistakes and lack of critical visibility of data. Software should illuminate the problems and bottlenecks (Lean) and ring the alert bells, not hide the mess within obsure data.
