Engineer to Order, also known as design to order refers to products or services whose customer specifications/requirements contain significant customization, unique designs or innovative and new purchased materials.
In general, these engineered orders are given a unique set of part numbers, bills of materials and routings. ETO products or services are engineered and produced after an order has been received from a customer. ETO is ideally suited to manufacturers and service providers of highly configurable products/services. These orders usually require very close customer and supplier engagement throughout the entire design, manufacturing and production phases.
