An ERP system selection methodology is a formal process for selecting an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. An ERP, by definition will provide automation for all department/functions of an organization. ERP is an industry term for the broad set of activities supported by multi-module application software that help a manufacturer or other business mange the important parts of its business, including product planning, parts purchasing , maintaining inventories, interacting with suppliers, providing customer service, and tracking orders. ERP cans also include application modules for the human resources aspects of a business.
- To identify the strategic advantages that ERP has brought to the organiza
- To identify the organizational processes that has improved due to ERP implementa
- To study the effectiveness of ERP on the organiza
- To modernize Business Processes and Systems.
- Research investigation is restricted to selected key personnel of the organization.
- The information given by few personnel deemed to be correct in the beginning, but later on it was found to be partial incorrect, which caused in convenience.
- Many of the respondents gave a negative answer in order to finish the interview quickly, which may affect in the study.
- As the perception level of the respondents has not been tested; it is assumed that all of them have perceived the questions in the correct way.
After 1990s many organizations around the world have been implementing ERP system to have a uniform information system in their business and to reengineer their business process. Many operating and manufacturing organization have been able to achieve high levels of performance in today competitive environment by using various IT tools that automate their routine organizational activities.
ERP systems work as background information and solve problems by providing integrated information fragmentation of all information flowing across corporate functions and other business units, across organizational units and geographical locations in the world. According to Wallace and Kremzar (2001), enterprise systems that link customers and suppliers of a supply chain computer, using proven success for decision making, and coordinate sales, marketing , operations, logistics, purchasing, finance, product development, and human resources, using proven success for decision making, and coordinate sales, marketing, operations, logistics, procurement, finance, product development, and human resources. It manages all the enterprise processes in a coordinated method, and provides timely and reliable information in order to senior management to make the right decisions in a timely manner. It isn’t a information system that’s with functionality of business, data, and for the generation of reports. It is complex, expensive, and difficult to implement.
Bradford (2008) pointed out some advantages of using ERP e.g. limited interfaces with single application architecture, lower costs if integrate successfully, access of information across a mix of applications, sole system to support organizational procedures and tasks, removal of small and unnecessary systems, automation of tasks with high impact and allow access to realtime data support of multiple currencies and languages for multinational, support for wide range of industries oil and gas, health care, chemicals, banking and power industries etc.
Methodology and reference:
In this project, the researcher will be based his theme on Exploratory Research. The major emphasis of Exploratory Research is on the discovery of ideas. Through Exploration, the researcher develops concepts more clearly, establish, priorities, develop operational definitions, and improve the final research design. This research is both quantitative and qualitative. This study is based on the data collected through “In -depth Interview” with key personnel from ERP Implemented Companies.
SOURCES OF DATA:
Data would be collected from various sources; there is a combination of both primary and secondary data that would be used in this research.
(A) PRIMARY DATA::
The primary data would be collected by conducting “In -depth Interview” with key personnel from ERP implemented companies. Primary data has also been collected through questionnaire from companies.
(B) SECONDARY DATA:
- Articles will be sourced from magazines and journals dealing with current issues in ERP.
- Internet & Text books related to ERP & Research Methodology have been a major secondary source for the extraction of the expert’s opinion.
Judgment Sampling is considered appropriate for making projections in the study. Judgment Sampling occurs when a researcher selects sample members to conform to some criterion. When it will be used in the early stages of exploratory study, a judgment sample is appropriate. When one wishes to select a biased group for screening purposes, this sampling method is also a good choice. We have therefore chosen this sampling method.
This research is the study deals with ERP implemented companies in Bangalore city only, the sample size of this magnitude serves the purpose.
The primary data would be collected by conducting “In -depth Interview” with key personnel from 17 ERP implemented companies. The data will be collected through this method will adequate enough to make projections in the study.
The primary data will be collected through questionnaires from companies.
Tools to be used for Hypothesis Testing
Two related samples test: these tests concern those situations in which persons, objects etc are measured twice.
Null hypothesis H0: There is no increase in efficiency after implementation of ERP.
Alternate hypothesis Ha: There is an increase in efficiency after implementation of ERP.
