Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are implemented to increase the productivity and operational efficiency of companies. However, the implementation activities and changes within operational processes pose a temporary threat to productivity. Reported difficulties in implementation projects frequently relate to organisational and human-centred issues; like the ability and motivation of the organisation to accept the new ERP system. User-centred design (UCD) is a multidisciplinary process… Expand
Analysis of the Software Implementation Process for ERP Systems
TLDR
From this analysis five common phases that are presented in the proposals were identified and the main activities performed during each of these phases were defined in order to support software enterprises during the ERP implementation process. Expand
Applying User-Centred Design in ERP Implementation Requirements Analysis
TLDR
Three post-implementation case studies are presented and the effects of human factors in them are evaluated and the human factors need to be taken into focus throughout the implementation project are evaluated. Expand
Implementation of an ERP System: A Case Study of a Full-Scope SAP Project
The paper presents the process of implementation of an ERP system basing on a single case study, with analysis of documentation being the main data collection approach. Activities and resultingExpand
Aligning ERP systems with companies’ real needs: an ‘Operational Model Based’ method
TLDR
A comprehensive understanding of the alignment management during ERP projects is given, and an ‘Operational Model Based’ method is proposed, which includes decisions related to the organisational changes an ERP system can induce, as well as criteria on which the best decision can be based. Expand
A case study of exploiting enterprise resource planning requirements
TLDR
An exploratory case study of a key tenet of ERP RE adoption, namely that aligning business applications to the packaged RE model leads to integral practices and economic development, indicates that AIM RE improved team collaboration and project management experience, but needed to make hidden assumptions explicit to support data visibility and integrity.

  • 2005
TLDR
The study suggests that whilst a common reason for customising ERP packages might be concerned with functionality misfits, it is important to look further into why these may occur, as there are clearly other reasons for customisation stemming from the multiplicity of social groups involved in the process.

  • 2000
TLDR
It is argued that the concept of an ERP implementation is not a generic concept, and a taxonomy of ERP Implementation categories is presented, which is presented as a tool for implementation managers to delineate the scope of anERP implementation project prior to in depth specification of the project processes.
