Founded in 1992 by a father-son team experienced in running their own manufacturing company, DBA Manufacturing was created to provide a small-business alternative to mid-market ERP systems. DBA has the distinction of being the only manufacturing system that is designed for self-implementation. The company is dedicated to developing simple, easy to use software and selling it directly at a reasonable price. DBA is the alternative to complicated ERP systems, designed and priced to fit the needs of small businesses.
DBA Manufacturing Technology
DBA solutions use the Firebird relational SQL database, which is structurally similar to SQL Server and Oracle. Solutions are designed to run on server hardware with fast processors and sufficient RAM. Efficient networks with high-capacity switches, network cards, and cabling are also necessary to run DBA software.
