Plan for productivity with E2 manufacturing software for prototype job shops

Prototype shopsPrototype shops are ideal candidates for a comprehensive enterprise-wide software solution. They make prototypes that are often used as part of the product design process to allow engineers and designers the ability to explore design alternatives, test theories and confirm performance prior to starting production of a new part. Engineers use their experience to tailor the prototype according to the specific unknowns still present in the intended design.

In general, an iterative series of prototypes will be designed, constructed and tested as the final design emerges and is prepared for production. With rare exceptions, multiple iterations of prototypes are used to progressively refine the design. A common strategy is to design, test, evaluate and then modify the design based on analysis of the prototype.

Software that manages a multitude of processes in the prototype shop

Prototype shops perform a multitude of manufacturing processes from machining to fabricating to mold making just to name a few.  They also come in all shapes and sizes and will typically produce parts from the prototype to insure quality and design.

E2 helps prototype shops control costs, measure quality and performance and schedule their shop floor effectively along with every other area of managing the shop.

”I'm really impressed with the E2 bar coded data collection. We know exactly what kind of labor/burden costs are on the job. That really comes in handy when it comes time to do our time and material billing.”
