The primary driver of the complexity of planning in an engineer-to-order (ETO) project is the uncertainty of design deep into the engineering and production process. There are no studies that explicitly identify and analyse the topics related to the relation between design and planning; the problems appeared during the design and planning phase, and the IT approach in ETO company. This paper presented the SLR results using content analysis on a comprehensively and systematically generated survey samples. The results confirmed that the design has actively associated with planning. Uncertainty and variability become the broad topics discussed in the design problem. On the other side, the dynamic and deterministic problems are widely discussed in the planning problems. The findings showed that the IT approach using ERP and CAD was the most attractive approach discussed by several studies in this related field.
