Most manufacturers use their ERP for 10-12 years after implementation. However, as time passes, manufacturers often fail to access all of the functionality that their ERP solutions offer. Diversification of the business, acquisitions, turnover in personnel, and software modifications that prohibit upgrades are common impediments to optimization.
At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Describe why manufacturers sub-optimize their ERP and how to avoid the causes
- List strategies for optimizing ERP
- Answer questions about how to continuously improve ERP usage
- Assess whether the ERP in place is the right ERP, needs to be optimized, or needs to be replaced
