Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Old business uses people to manage ad hoc processes. New business uses software to manage processes and deliver information through formal or social relationships to people for making decisions – because making decisions based on incomplete information is what people do best (when not performing tasks too difficult, complicated or varied for a machine).

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software integrates management of core business processes, such as:

  • Project management
  • Engineering Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
  • Purchasing
  • Production planning
  • Manufacturing or the delivery of services
  • Marketing, sales and Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
  • Materials and inventory management
  • Shipping and payment
  • Financial reporting

ERP provides an integrated and continuously updated view of core business processes using a common database. An ERP system in effect shares controlled data across the various departments of an organization.
