Enterprise Resource Planning

by avachon In reply to Enterprise Resource Plann ...

ERP (enterprise resource planning)is comprised of modular application software that helps manufacturers plan and thus increase the efficiency and productivity of mission-critical aspects of their business. Examples of such mission-critical aspects include inventory control, human resources, financing, etc.). The benefits are two-fold: modular app sofware allows for scalability and customization so business needs specific to a company's operations can be met. Second, ERP helps in planning expansion - literally, resource planning as a company expands or even changes direction (e.g., move into on-line sales). There are many good ERP sites and one linked to this site. If you join techproguild (30 day free trial) you have access to the ERP supersite. You'll get briefings on growth and changes within enterprise systems; discussions about implementations, costs, etc.

Enterprise resource planning is a set of software applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. The program is modular allowing a company to add units for management in their business as needed. The benefit is that with software management throughout the company being created as a whole, it makes using software from different areas in the company, or new additions similar and easily learned. By being modulated, a business only needs buy what it needs at the time isntead of buying a huge package that is extremely expensive and only using a portion of it.

ERP - Enterprise Resource Planning. An ERP application can incorporate many different applications that help run a company. These applications include finance, HR, sales order processing, production planning and scheduling, purchasing, stock control, financial controlling. Ideally an ERP set of applications are integrated with one another. Integrated ERP systems that incorporate all elements for managing a company have tended to be monolithic in nature. Do everything and integrated but definitely not very modular, although they may appear to be modular from a user perspective. An organisation that uses an ERP system has the opportunity to better understand that organisation. By having (in one system) all the information relating to its operations it is more easily possible to for better understanding hence better relationships with customers and suppliers and at the same time maximise the value of the organisation.

Companies of all sizes and industries are installing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software in order to improve business processes or replace aging enterprise systems. The implementation of an ERP system involves a complex set of tasks, from selection and system design, to installation, tuning, maintenance and upgrade. The core set of technologies and capabilities needed to accomplish these tasks is often not obtainable in-house, due to high costs and lack of resources. This means that ERP customers must find ways to engage top-notch ERP experts while controlling costs and still be able to implement and maintain a strategic ERP system. Handing off all or part of the responsibility for implementation and maintenance - also know as ERP outsourcing - is an increasingly viable and important option for ERP customers. This report defines the ERP outsourcing option for customers and describes the outsourcing capabilities of Origin Technology in Business.
