– Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business management software, their implementation first things to identify company(business) needs.
– Typically ERP application collect, manage, and interpret data from product planning, purchasing, sales, manufacturing, inventory, accounting, human resources and many other business activities.
– The objectives can be many, ranging from bringing in the transparency of operations to having financial control, supporting organic expansion, supporting acquisition or supporting common processes.
– The primary cause of the delays and over budgeting is the unclear definition of the ERP requirement. The ERP features must be evaluated in accordance with the barometer of synchronisation within the needs of company. Depending upon the budget and core necessity, the ERP demand list should be generated which achieves a smooth and less ERP implementation.
DEFINE PROJECT TEAM
– Assign a project team with employees for Sales, Customer, Purchases, Account, MRP, eCommerce. Each team member should be committed to the success of the project and able for specific tasks, i.e. developing a timeline, finalising objectives, formulating a training plan.
– The team should develop a project plan which includes previously defined goals and objectives, timelines, training procedures, as well as individual team responsibilities.
ANALYSE/DEVELOP BUSINESS FLOW
– Have the team perform an analysis on which business processes should be improved. A business process refers to activities that employees perform on a day-to-day basis that accomplish an organisational goal. The process represents what a company does to reach a particular goal. A business process should cover any variations or exceptions to the process.
– Also, do not forget about integration. An ERP solution that does not work with your existing legacy and/or critical office systems is not a solution but another expensive piece of unused or unusable software.
– Once an ERP solution is identified, the next biggest and most important step is of data migration, which provides for a smooth transition and future utilisation of the software.
– Implementing an ERP can be a huge change, especially if the company is trying the software for the first time. Identifying which data are necessary for successful transition to the common software problem is very important.
– Most software allows the input of data but entire data shifting may burden the software. Therefore, only the necessary and most important data should be transferred to the software, and great care should be taken to ensure that the data is retrieved from the software, whenever required.
– The software capabilities of an object identify characteristics of the software that might be important for debugging or monitoring processes. Software capabilities can also influence process execution. Presently, the only software capabilities that are recognised relate to frame pointer usage by the object, and process address space restrictions.
– Testing is the process of evaluating a system with the intent to find whether it satisfies with specified requirements and work with other systems.
– Testing is executing a system in order to identify any gaps, errors, or missing requirements in contrary to the actual requirements, Team have to confirm that all data are valid in database as well all requirement information are working correctly.
– Training is dedicated to integrator as well as end users who want to get better of ERP. You will be sure that team has an extra session of training to know how to handle any problems that might be arise in future.
– After trained end user, once your system is configured with proper testing you can easily launched ERP application.
