Your manufacturing processes will not only become more efficient, but you’ll also see improvements in quality.

Plus, implementation is simple when the system is built to suit your needs. This includes data loading, deployment, integration, configuration, customization, and training. From $7,500/year for 5 seats.

ENGINEER TO ORDER SUCCESS

What can you expect when you partner with a team that truly understands what it means to be ETO?
Engineer To Order manufacturers face unique needs, delays, and other struggles that most machine builders don’t. That’s why Total ETO is known for our Dynamic BOMs.

Working with such flexibility allows your engineers to:
- Bring design work in, without leaving CAD.
- Copy parts from a past project’s BOM to a new BOM.
- Cost out the BOM before purchases are made.
- Release parts to procurement in stages, including long-lead components.

Our Dynamic BOMs are also loved in procurement:
- Issue and revise RFQs and POs with just a few clicks.
- Add POs and make revisions as changes occur including revised delivery dates.
- Reserve inventory by project and see remaining availability.
- Know all the parts you have received, what you’re waiting for, and what parts are late in real-time.

Additionally, Total ETO simplifies the sales process:
- Automatically roll up estimated material and labor for different equipment to a project’s total cost.
- Copy similar project elements from past projects using budget or actual costs.
- Easily add and modify labor and material lines by type to compare to actual values as the project is completed.
- Record and track estimates to completion for accurate percentage complete revenue recognition.
- Provide sales essential estimating information to secure and quote future projects.
- Capture change order information including labor, material and sales price changes so they aren’t omitted or forgotten.

Total ETO provides your entire organization with a high-level view of each project. In fact, it’s easy to track your project workflow and see reporting metrics at all stages of a project. This empowers management with real-time information. See project costing, material status, and more in over 200 pre-designed reports.

The team at TotalETO was extremely helpful with implementation. Making the switch to TotalETO required us to rethink our job-flow. Their team was eager to offer suggestions, answer questions, and help improve our process to use TETO to its fullest!

Pros

BOM integration with our CAD software (SolidWorks) is a huge time saver. I can release the BOM for a very large assembly (1000 different manufactured / purchased parts) in less than 5 minutes.
Total ETO makes job tracking from the quoting stages to the closing very straight forward. Costing and profits margin can be tracked the entire way.

Cons

An updated web-version with Data Dashboards would be nice - but last I heard their developers are working on this. They already have an online platform for Time-entry, so I suspect they will build from there. Very excited to see this grow!

Love it and it definitely makes our jobs easier. However I do wish the different levels of access had a more tailored system in front of them based on that access level. Get rid of the things a user can't use. And organize things better for each users access level.

Pros

I love being able to find all the information about parts, purchase orders and materials through our use of the BOM features. Tracking items the purchasing group has on order, delivery times to our floor, and then managements expectations of the final product going out the door all can be seen.

Cons

It is almost too flexible and offers almost too many features. From a user perspective, I almost wish I couldn't see all the things that I don't have access to. It muddies up my user experience to see all the other options, reports etc that I can't run myself.

As a QA Manager I have been using various export functions, especially, exports to excel, which helps me to monitor NCR trends, supplier performance and easily generate presentation graphs and diagrams.
Overall it is a good software, works well with SolidWorks, easy to use, and satisfies all engineering, purchasing and administrative needs for our company.

Pros

Questica is good for managing projects and keeping track of items used on each project. The search functions work very well to identify past projects or parts orders which is a great help in correctly quoting parts. The reports are also very detailed which aids in many tasks such as looking up costing to quote a similar project.
When you get familiar with it you get all the info you need. It’s very user friendly in terms of entering info and very forgiving if you need to correct something. Most of the functions are fairly intuitive and the available reports give you several different options for disseminating information depending on what you’re looking for.

Cons

Improvements I would like
Ability to link documents in areas other than sales order (i.e. Purchasing – link quotes to PO’s)
Ability to create simple parts quotes

It is better than other tools I have used in the past for the same BOM management work. Sure there is room for improvement but the base structure is much better than the competition.

Pros

It's ability to manage the master BOM of released/unreleased material is very helpful. Having used other BOM management software I was very happy to switch back. The parts database is easy to use. Creating new parts is very quick and easy.

Cons

It's ease of use and flexibility can be a weakness if the permissions are not used appropriately. Manufacturers with easy to mistype/misspell names can end up in the system 3 to 4 different ways. (AKA Allen-Bradley, Allen Bradley, AB, etc.) The new security settings may prevent this in the future.
