“E.T.O. Phone Home”: Using Discrete ERP in an ETO Environment Will Leave You with an Out-of-this-world Experience


A brief journey of what functionality ERP engineer-to-order systems must support. Just like the mythical character in the film E.T., who was far from home in an unfamiliar environment, companies that have years of experience working with a discrete ERP system sometimes feel that they are out of this world in trying to adapt the system to the unique elements  in the engineer-to-order (ETO) world

Governance, Risk, and Compliance for Life Sciences Companies: Institutionalize Compliance to Reduce Costs and Increase Productivity
