  • Description
  • Contents

Intensifying competition forces companies to closely integrate with their customers and suppliers. Cooperation creates a more flexible supply chain. Yet, lead-times become shorter and demand for increased variety continues to grow. This dilemma requires a means to implement the desired integration. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is that tool.

ERP, a system for effectively planning and managing all the resources of an enterprise, fully utilizes the increased power available in computers today. ERP is distinguished from MRP in its use of relational databases, fourth-generation languages, integrated computer aided engineering tools, and open system portability to adjunct planning systems, finite scheduling systems, and manufacturing execution systems.


This book includes the Management Interactive Case Study Simulator (MICSS) on CD-ROM, a computerized case study that lets you manage a small company, illustrating crucial management issues. The challenge: learn to control the dynamics of this virtual company and maneuver it to financial success.

The Advanced Planning and Scheduling tools of the ERP system help determine the most beneficial mix of customers and orders. ERP provides timing recommendation for material purchases and can share this information with all links of the supply chain. A successful ERP is highly effective in reducing material costs, which boosts profitability.

The most common reason that ERP implementations fail is when operators are not properly educated in the integrated business application of the system. This ignorance turns ERP into an overpriced inventory control system. ERP: Tools, Techniques and Applications for Integrating the Supply Chain helps provide the education that is critical for ERP success.
