Total ETO implementation a success for Reliable Automation

Total ETO

Reliable Automation builds specialized machinery for a number of industries including Medical, Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Goods, Furniture, and Appliance.  As a company built on innovation and quality, the importance of an ERP system was critical to meeting customer needs while keeping costs in line.  Implementing Total ETO has provided Reliable Automation with a number of tools to help them.


The project- oriented layout of Total ETO means that all machines and parts are housed in one place, which is helping Reliable Automation tighten up their internal processes.


Project Managers are pleased with the data they now have at their fingertips to run their projects.  The team on the shop floor have found it much easier to track missing parts, and to see where it is in the production process.


Reliable Automation plans to continue developing their BOMs (Bill of Materials) in Excel, so Total ETO customized the mapping to import these BOMs into Total ETO, eliminating manual entry.  The Pick Parts Wizard will enable them to easily order parts that are not on a BOM.  This system works really well for them, saving them a lot of time, and providing more control.


As Reliable Automation builds out their parts history and project history within Total ETO, they will have a valuable tool for faster, more accurate sales estimating.


While implementing a major software package can be a daunting task, Reliable Automation has found the team at Total ETO to be outstanding.  Their prompt response, ability to solve problems, and overall attitude have helped make the entire process smooth and efficient.
