Enable Configure-to-Order (CTO) – And Reduce Engineering Support by Automating Configuration

CLM Summit 2023 presentation by
Anders S. Rasmussen
Senior Principal Software Developer, Configit

In a traditional Engineer-to-Order (ETO) process, valuable engineering resources are needed to design a solution. For manufacturers with a broad portfolio of highly customizable products and systems, this process is slow and prone to errors and duplication of work.

This session will demonstrate how the shift from ETO towards Configure-to-Order (CTO) processes can be enabled and managed.

Configit Ace® provides the platform for automating the ordering and quoting process to considerably reduce the impact on engineering resources while ensuring valid responses.

With Configit Ace® product models and rules can be used to define how a set of standard components and parts can be assembled to meet orders. Responding to customer requests based on CTO processes in turn improves the customer experience and saves valuable time for engineers for productive work.
