The use of complex ETO equipment in the Energy & Utilities industry continues to increase. New greenfield capital projects are incorporating innovative designs and specialty equipment to drive operational efficiencies. Existing brownfield operations are being retrofitted to extend service life as owner-operators defer capital spending initiatives. Managing to the constraints of new and retrofit projects often require custom solutions that cater more to the ETO business model.

Our solution provides a configuration backbone to support the entire lifecycle from planning and engineering through manufacturing, execution and field service. It provides robust capabilities to support Equipment Manufacturers and EPCs across the spectrum of configured products and equipment:

  • That have equipment lines with standard models with defined sets of supported variants
  • That deliver complex configure to order equipment with an exponential number of possible variations and combinations,
  • That have highly complex and engineered to order equipment that require new variants of parts and designs with every order.

Solution Capabilities
