DBA Software Inc. was founded in 1992 by a father and son team, Warren and Michael Hart, who set out to develop a software package exclusively for small manufacturing businesses. They were inspired by their experience running a family manufacturing business, H. W. Hart Manufacturing Inc., which made watering and feeding systems for the poultry industry. Joseph Hart joined DBA in 2004 and is the current owner/operator of the company.
The Harts understood that small manufacturing businesses need the same advanced functions that larger enterprises use, such as MRP and shop control, but with a simpler design that is scaled for smaller companies. DBA Software’s flagship product, DBA Manufacturing, reflects that insight with over 30 years of refinement providing small businesses with an alternative to overcomplicated ERP systems.
