About the Client
The client’s company run and managed by professionals, renowned in the Automation industry in their respective area of expertise. They provide comprehensive solutions, under one roof, meeting all Electrical and Automation needs of their customers. Some of the solutions offered cover application of PLC, DCS, Electrical Drives, MCC, PCC, and Instrumentation. The industries served primarily are Paper Mills, Steel Rolling Mills, Cement Plants, Water Management, Captive Power Plants, Process Plants, and Manufacturing Industries etc. Being an Engineer to Order (ETO) Company, it has a long timeline to produce large, highly customized products to specific customer specifications.
In ETO, the engineering requirements/specifications are not known in detail in Customer’s PO. There is a substantial amount of design and engineering analysis required to execute the order. ETO is a stark contrast to the Made to Order (MTO) companies who typically have a fixed design and specifications to start with at the customer’s order stage. In MTO, the existing design is largely followed, even if the customer requests some customization of dimensions or materials.
The client was using Tally for Finance and Excel for managing other departments and hence was not able to automate their Manufacturing processes and other business processes. The management at the client was specifically concerned about BOM management, High inventory carrying costs, Order costing and Timely order execution. The order was won against some very tough competition from products like SAP HANA and BaaN.
