"I consider this the best and most important chapter in the book. Coupling TPS with ERPs is very smart and really works well. Outstanding integration of all systems descriptions from CRM to TPS, inventory systems to accounting all the way to payroll, even EDI. Students rarely understand the big picture, but this point is vital to understanding how IT works in companies today. Well done!" - Howard Sundwall, West Chester University
