For many manufacturers the slowly improving economy has renewed their interest in ERP and its tremendous benefits. Although financially able to make the investment, they are concerned about staffing. During the recent economic decline, there were severe cutbacks in manufacturing jobs. Now the question is: will they have adequate staff to select and implement a new ERP system? Our ERP consultants discuss the resources needed to successfully select and implement an ERP system for manufacturers.
At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Identify the team competencies required to successfully implement ERP
- Determine the resource time requirements to successfully implement ERP
- Structure the scope and calendar timing of the implementation
- Describe how an organization can balance the needs of the business with those of the implementation
