ERP/MRP systems are the tools of the new American industrial age. Against all odds, Manufacturing in America is resurging, powered by the discovery of new energy sources, the high cost of transportation, supply disruptions, and increased affluence of global competitors. Like all industrial cycles, this one differs from predecessors. Technology is more advanced and granular. Digital technology is pervasive, with software applications for virtually any real or imagined situation. Systems unable to integrate mobile technology are obsolete. Speed, as always, is a business goal, but speed without quality is waste. Sustainability is an issue affecting every business decision. Process improvement programs must incorporate resource yield/optimization, and viable ERP systems provide deeper structure for planning and managing resources. Strategy and governance define the direction for the business, how it designs, markets, distributes, and acquires the needed assets to buy/make product. ERP systems plan and control the supporting processes, translating objectives into actionable plans, then tracking execution in real-time. Since its inception, ERP has grown steadily more complicated, robust, and expensive to purchase and install. Comprehensive systems are still available but new approaches provide industry with advanced and in some cases, more simplified solutions, including cloud applications, modularity, and a return to the simple functionality of MRP. ERP/MRP, like manufacturing, presents exciting new applications for achieving excellence. This book is a structured process written to guide you on the journey to successful implementations.

From the Author:

Fellow traveler on the ERP journey,

 
ERP projects are tough work but very important for the future of your company. Competitive pressures will only intensify, and companies will compete at ever-faster speeds.
 
Those serving as project team members, directly or on functional teams, hold the operational effectiveness of your employer in your hands. As you take actions to get the job done, the outcome will affect many lives.
 
Never let your guard down and stay alert. Situations will not always reflect reality. Ask tough questions and demand answers from software suppliers, each other, and fellow workers. Quality is important. Establish high goals and challenge yourself and others to achieve the standards. When the project is complete, and people are working with the results, all will be celebrate having done the project correctly.
 
To everyone in the organization - a successful project result is a positive for you and fellow workers. You will grow in knowledge and importance to your current and perhaps future organization.
 
The friend to whom we dedicated this book was a worker and builder. Jerry was a stonemason that spent his life taking rough and oddly shaped stones, and mortaring them into beautiful structures. He understood that people, like things, are different sizes, shapes and strength, but working together they produce a beautiful result.  
 
Take pride in your work and enjoy the ERP journey.
 
Wayne Staley

 

From the Back Cover:

The failure rate for ERP projects still exceeds 40%. Through this book and ERP Information at the Speed of Reality, we at Affinity Systems LLC are dedicated to significantly improving the success rate.
 
Businesses must compete within constraints such as capital formation, growth, automation, governmental regulation, and global competition. To these, add economic resource circularity concerns dealing with sustainability, availability, yield, carbon footprints, repurposed materials, and waste. Resource planning and management are becoming ever more complex and imperative.

Competition is about speed, quality, adaptability, and productivity applied equally to goods, services, manufacturing, supply chains, and decision-making, all demanding timely information and fast processes. As velocity increases, business systems must retain high levels of integrity and provide actionable data in real time. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are the information super highways for adaptive and agile processes, and Lean Six Sigma provides the tools to speed up operational realities.
 
ERP Lessons Learned - Structured Process presents a Nine Step method to translate business into the software definitions, then evaluate, purchase and install ERP system solutions. The implementation of a contemporary improvement program completes the tool set. Use ERP/Lean too effectively build successful business systems.
