Timely Information Critical for ETO Manufacturers

Timely Information Critical for ETO Manufacturers According to Streamline Systems and AX 2012
Dec. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- Information delivery needs to be timely and meaningful.  There is no reason why ETO firms cannot find out immediately about a shortage, an engineering change that affects production, or even updates to company policy or news.  The information should lead directly to the place where follow-up processing can happen.  There is limited benefit in receiving a shortage notification in email, if one must login to another system to resolve it.
The fifth installment Streamline Systems’ ETO blog recently focused on the promise to make ERP simple and easy to use in the engineer-to-order space.   The role-tailored user experience and familiarity with MS Office workspace is profiled for ETO manufacturers using AX 2012, found at http://www.streamlinesys.com/blog/.
The ETO organization must be nimble and agile to stay in business.  Users wear many hats and often need to cross roles to keep work moving.  If users do not have the tools to adapt to change they have to struggle through their day using workarounds, spreadsheets and extra effort.
Dynamics AX 2012 provides a single point of access, called the Role Center, to keep ETO manufacturers informed and help take care of the important activities to keep business running.  In the Role Center daily tasks, routines and information are organized the way engineer to order firms work.  ETO firms receive critical insight into upcoming trends or events, usually before a problem occurs.  Alerts link directly to the affected task or process and workflow reminders eliminate wasted time and energy.  Managers can keep track of tasks assigned to subordinates and you can collaborate on shared tasks with other departments.

The idea of an information dashboard is not new, but Microsoft extends the concept further by providing a personalized workspace where information meets action out of the box, based on the function or role in the company.

Streamline Systems just published a vital tool for Engineer-to-Order manufacturers; the white paper is objective and looks at the history, trends, and future of ETO manufacturing.  Larry Cohn and the ETO experts at Streamline Systems work with industrial manufacturers to manage and grow their businesses through the effective use of software designed for engineer to order manufacturing companies. “We focus exclusively on ETO manufacturers, who benefit from the knowledge and experience of ETO experts,” commented Cohn.
The paper discusses the development of ETO ERP Solutions, including AX2012 ETO ERP. The Streamline Systems ETO ERP white paper may be requested at:  http://www.streamlinesys.com/engineer-to-order.php.

Dynamics AX 2012 is designed to be the most powerful, agile and simple ERP available.  AX 2012 ETO from Streamline Systems can also be followed via Twitter @StreamlineSysAX.
