ERP in Manufacturing 2012

January 23, 2013

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has been definied as an operational and transactional system of record. With its roots in Material Requirements Planning (MRP) it has long been used by leading manufacturers to uncover untapped efficiencies, reduce costs, and provide visibility to managers to aid in informed decision making.

ERP, and the organization itself, should be constantly moving forward. Successful manufacturers tailor ERP in reaction to business change and needs. This can include adding new functionality or mobile access. This 7th annual Aberdeen benchmark, based on over 170 survey respondents in manufacturing, explores Best-in-Class approaches to manufacturers’ evolving ERP strategy and performance.
