The leading alternative to traditional ERP since 1992

A breakthrough demand driven planning system for small business

Updates your existing accounting system

High Throughput – Efficient Inventory – Lean Staffing

This is an unprecedented era in our worldwide economy as we rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.   The small business manufacturing sector will need to lead the recovery.   There is an opportunity to rethink how you run your business as the status quo is no longer an option.   Every manufacturing business has to up its efficiency to stay competitive and survive.  DBA will help you meet this challenge and deliver the manufacturing miracle of high throughput, efficient inventory, and lean staffing.

Our unique demand driven planning system is a breakthrough, allowing any company to succeed without the need for outside assistance, onsite training, or custom programming.

No amount of training or custom programming can make up for the inherent flaws of traditional planning methods.   We have seen company after company throw employees and money at their planning silos to try to improve their business.  The path forward is to commit to the DBA demand driven system that delivers increased throughput while using less staff.
