Engineer-to-Order Process Automation

September 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


You understand the operational challenges that Engineer-to-Order products bring to your organization. You need to provide the flexibility and customization that your clients demand, but the process often results in

  • long bid and order engineering lead times,
  • inaccurate cost and schedule estimates,
  • margin eroding errors, and
  • project schedule/budget overruns.

How can you deliver the benefits and minimize these drawbacks?

Automating the ETO process will enable your team to focus on capturing knowledge and less on the process drudgery.

In this Webinar, you will hear about S&C Electric’s 30-year journey through design automation systems. S&C Electric has had many successes automating systems for ETO products and is now working to achieve similar results for their Custom Engineered products. Learn how they are using Siemens applications to provide a development platform for a variety of products and deliverables. Discover the methods used and lessons learned in creating systems to automate both Engineer-to-Order and Custom Engineered products.

Some of the insights you will gain include:

  • Lessons Learned on how to develop and implement an ETO Automation solution
  • Expectations of what the solution should achieve and the likelihood it will do so
  • How to setup a successful Proof of Concept
