Shoptech: Greg Ehemann and Rich Ehemann, the founding partners - and the two Es - of the E2 Shop System, have been around job shops their entire lives. While working in a job shop in the 1980’s, they realized the most important foundation of a make to order manufacturer is to determine if you are making or losing money on a job by job basis. Determining profitability based on accounting at the end of the month doesn’t help develop a true strategy to grow a business. They also experienced firsthand the need to better coordinate most of the other facets of running a job shop: estimating, scheduling, collecting time from the shop floor, purchasing, shipping, and even accounting.
