Assemble-to-Order (ATO) is a hybrid of make-to-stock and make-to-order production. The basic idea is order-neutral prefabrication linked to customer-specific final production or assembly. ATO is therefore a production approach in which goods are only produced when a customer orders them, rather than producing for stock. In the manufacturing process, standardized components such as modules or assemblies are used that have been pre-produced based on presumed demand.
The end customer can plan the design of his end product directly in a browser, whereby different possibilities are presented to the user.
The warehouse stock level can be called up via a connection to the ERP system.
A very precise price calculation is carried out depending on all relevant factors such as material costs, additional work and many others.
With the Guided Selling process, the ordering of the product is effectively supported.
The assembly of the components can be planned and carried out directly through interfaces to different databases.
The product is packaged and shipped to the customer.
