Industry Solution Sheet: Manufacturing (Make to Order Approach)
The make to order (MTO) or build to order (BTO) manufacturing approach – which involves the production
of goods based on confirmed customer orders and according to individual customer specifications – is used by manufacturing companies from a wide cross- section of industries including aviation, automotive, maritime, computer hardware, tooling, and construction.
These manufacturing companies must deliver highly customized products – such as aircraft, buildings, bridges, ships, computer servers, boring machines, and trucks – to customers in the shortest possible timeframe and at the lowest possible cost.
Mathematical optimization can help manufacturers of MTO products balance the complex tradeoff between project costs and times, maximize the utilization of their resources, and manage their end-to-end supply chain operations – so that they can consistently deliver products to customers and profits to shareholders.
