This book introduces the fundamental principles of understanding business requirements to apply enterprise resource planning (ERP) in order to meet business needs. The book also helps readers understand the usage of ERP for monitoring and controlling business processes, while providing practical oriented solutions to the design and implementation of ERP. Using the provided framework, a business can decide to provide more value at lower cost which increases its competitive advantage. This should be an ideal reference for executives, researchers and consultants in project management of ERP. ERP can be considered to be an integrated package of business process. The scope of ERP determines the extent of automation of business process. For example if ERP covers Human Resource (HR) and finance business processes only, then business process related HR and finance are automated. Typically business process that are automated in HR and finance employee entry and exist process, allocation of employee ID, payroll, processing , income tax planning and actual deduction etc. There is seamless flow of employee data and information is available at an effectively faster rate to take appropriate decision. As custom demand increases, there is a need to meet the changing scenario with speed and efficiency. While there is a need to increase productivity, there is also a need to reduce cost of operation. The repetitive business processes can be handled effectively by automating them and freeing human resources for meeting other uncertainties. These automations not only should be done for each department, but also should cut across different departments. Thus there is a need for automating business processes at enterprise level. This enterprise level automation started with MRP, then MRP II, ERP and then finally open source ERP have taken centre stage. Out of the standard products available in the market, an organization can chose an ERP product for implementation, depending on the features available and the total cost of ownership (TCO). This comparison helps an organization to choose the product that best suits the needs for the organization. Enterprise Resource Planning: Fundamentals of Design and Implementation highlights these concepts while discusses different good practices to design and implement ERP.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a coordinated approach to information management to improve customer service and productivity, and effectively manage costs and inventories. In today's highly competitive environment, businesses need effective forecasting, planning and scheduling, and customer service management. They need to hear the "voice of the customer" and design products and services to deliver customer satisfaction. An integrated system of information that treats the functional and different business units of a firm as a cohesive whole would help businesses and organizations alike to improve productivity and quality, and remain competitive.This book develops a scholarly and practical view of ERP by strategizing ERP. It views the failures of ERP projects primarily from poor implementation strategies and the lack of involvement of people - the most important asset of any organization. It expands the discussion on ERP by exploring how ERP could improve the efficiency of all business processes. It looks specifically into the functions, and relations of ERP to effective Supply Chain Management (SCM), collaborative forecasting and planning, customer relationship management, product life cycle management, e-procurement and e-business operations.This book is not about ERP software development but rather about effective management of ERP-based operations and supply chain management systems. It is developed as a foundation or basic book on ERP to be used primarily for teaching introductory classes on ERP and for introducing practicing managers to the basics of ERP/SCM and the role of ERP/SCM in achieving organizational effectiveness and competitiveness. It will serve as a good resource for managers of organizations thinking about adopting ERP/SCM software or training programs.

This book covers typical business processes and shows how these processes are implemented. Examples are presented using the leading systems on the market – SAP ERP and SAP SCM. In this way, the reader can understand how business processes are actually carried out "in the real world".
