make to order. A manufacturing method in which commonly-used raw materials and components may be stocked based on previous demand history, but further processing into higher-level items is not done until receipt of a customer order. Variability in customer demand will not allow stocking upper-level assemblies and major subsystems or modules prior to receipt of an order, as done in assemble to order (ATO) environments.
Make To Order. A manufacturing philosophy whereby finished goods are manufactured for specific customer orders. MTO includes ATO, CTO, ETO, and Job Shop manufacturers.
Make To Order - a product is only made when an order is received. Usually low volume engineered goods. For many companies MTO is seen as the holy grail of manufacturing strategy; a scenario where there is minimal stock and cost only occurs when a sales order is received. In reality, a combination of strategies focusing on the particular process, product and market demands is usually best.
