What is ERP?• Enterprise resource planning is a cross-functional enterprise system – An integrated suite of software modules – Supports basic internal business processes – Facilitates business, supplier, and customer information flows• For e.g. software for a manufacturing company will typically process the data and track the status of sales, inventory, shipping, and invoicing, as well as forecast raw material and human resource requirements. 8-2
ERP• ERP is the technological backbone of e-business, and enterprise wide transaction framework with links into sales order processing, inventory management and control, production and distribution planning, and finance.• ERP gives a company an integrated real time view of its core business processes, such as production, order processing, and inventory management tied together by the ERP application software and a common database maintained by a database management system.• ERP software suites typically consist of integrated modules of manufacturing, distribution, sales, accounting, and human resource applications.
• Example of manufacturing processes supported are material requirements planning, production planning and capacity planning.• Sales and marketing processes supported by ERP are sales analysis, sales planning, and pricing analysis.• ERP support many vital human resource processes, from personnel requirements planning to salary and benefits administration, and accomplish most required financial record keeping and managerial accounting applications
Benefits of ERP• ERP Business Benefits – Quality and efficiency: ERP creates a framework for integrating and improving a company’s internal business processes that results in significant improvements in the quality and efficiency of customer service, production, and distribution. – Decreased costs: companies significant reductions in transaction processing costs and hardware, software, and IT support staff compared to the nonintegrated legacy systems that were replaced by their new ERP systems 8-7
Benefits of ERP– Decision support: ERP provides vital cross functional information on business performance to managers quickly to significantly improve their ability to make better decisions in a timely manner across the entire business enterprise.– Enterprise agility: implementing ERP systems breaks down many former departmental and functional walls of business processes, information systems, and information resources. This results in more flexible org structures, managerial responsibilities, and work roles and therefore a more adaptive organization and workforce that can work more easily capitalize on new business requirements.
Challenges of ERP• ERP Costs – Risks and costs are considerable – Hardware and software are a small part of total costs, and that the costs of developing new business processes and preparing emp for the new system make up the bulk of implementing a new ERP system. – Converting data from previous legacy systems to the new cross functional ERP system is another major category of ERP implementation costs. – Failure in implementing a new ERP system can cripple or kill a business
Causes of ERP Failures• Most common causes of ERP failure – Under-estimating the complexity of planning, development, training – Failure to involve affected employees in planning and development – Trying to do too much too fast – Insufficient training – Insufficient data conversion and testing – Over-reliance on ERP vendor or consultants
ERP Implementation• Erp implementation, generally follows the waterfall mode approach.• Once a firm order is received, the implementation begins with meeting between the vendor and the org.• ERP implementation process model, it is a nine step approach for successful implementation of ERP
Nine steps approach to ERP implementation1. RDD ( requirement definition and description)2. Product mapping to RDD3. Gap analysis for review4. ERP product configuration5. Functional implementation6. Technical implementation7. User feedback and review8. Deploy fully and go live as planned9. Project and process review

ERP implementation• The model is built on three reviews. – First review product vs. RDD results into ‘gap analysis’ showing what ERP package offers and RDD states. This confirms the utility of ERP product and makes a clear prescription of changes, which are must in the ERP solution. – Second review is ERP ‘ configuration review’ to confirm that configured ERP for customer specific requirement is useful to the users. – Third and final review is after six months usage, to confirm that RDD is fully implemented and the solution meets all requirements, namely functions, features, facilities, technology interface, information requirements and reports and queries.• Nine steps implementation model is dynamic where each step is checked, reviewed and confirmed.
What is a Supply Chain?• The interrelationships – With suppliers, customers, distributors, and other businesses – Needed to design, build, and sell a product• Each supply chain process should add value to the products or services a company produces – Frequently called a value chain
Supply Chain Management (SCM)• Fundamentally, supply chain management helps a company – Get the right products – To the right place – At the right time – In the proper quantity – At an acceptable cost
SCM• Major functions of supply chain are marketing, manufacturing, procurement, operations, inventory, warehousing, distribution and customer service.• The process begins with customer order and ends with delivery of goods and services.• These functions are managed through supply chain participants who could be many at each stage in the chain.
SCM• Supply chain consist of all stages involved in servicing the customer to fulfill the expectations.• A supply chain is an extended enterprise where participants in the chain have specific contributing roles to the goal of reaching the customer.• Table shows supply chain models and participants Manufacturing Trading Service business • Customer • Customer • Customer • Retailer • Retailer • consultant • Distributor • Transporter • Service provider • Transporter • warehouse • warehouse • supplier • supplier
Goals of SCM• The goal of SCM is to efficiently – Forecast demand – Control inventory – Enhance relationships with customers, suppliers, distributors, and others – Receive feedback on the status of every link in the supply chain
Planning Function of SCM• Planning – Supply chain design • optimize network of suppliers, plants and distribution centers – Collaborative demand and supply planning • Develop an accurate forecast of customer demand by sharing demand and supply forecasts instantaneously across multiple tiers • Internet enabled collaborative scenarios, such as collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR), and vendor managed inventory
Execution function of SCM• Execution – Materials management • Share accurate inventory and procurement order information • Ensure materials required for production are available in the right place at the right time • Reduce raw material spending, procurement costs, safety stocks, and raw material and finished goods inventory – Collaborative manufacturing • Optimize plans and schedules while considering resources, material, and dependency constraints
Execution function of SCM– Collaborative fulfillment • Commit to delivery dates in real time • Fulfill orders from all channels on time with order management, transportation planning, and vehicle scheduling • Support the entire logistics process, including picking, packing, shipping, and delivery in foreign countries.– Supply chain event management • Monitor every stage of the supply chain process, form price quotation to the moment the customer receives the product, and receive alerts when problem arises– Supply chain performance management • Report key measurements in the supply chain, such as filling rates, order cycle times, and capacity utilization.
Benefits of SCM• Key Benefits – Faster, more accurate order processing – Reductions in inventory levels – Quicker times to market – Lower transaction and materials costs – Strategic relationships with supplier
Challenges of SCM• Key Challenges – Lack of demand planning knowledge, tools, and guidelines – Inaccurate data provided by other information systems – Lack of collaboration among marketing, production, and inventory management – SCM tools are immature, incomplete, and hard to implement

What is Knowledge• Knowledge is justified true belief. Ayer, A.J. (1956).• Knowledge is a fluid mix of framed experience, values, contextual information and expert insight that provides a framework for evaluating and incorporating new experience and information.
• KM is the process of capturing and making use of a firm’s collective enterprise anywhere in the business- on paper, in document, in databases (called explicit knowledge) or in people’s heads (called tacit knowledge).
What is Knowledge Management?• Defined in a variety of ways.• KM in education: a strategy to enable people to develop a set of practices to create, capture, share & use knowledge to advance.• KM focuses on: – people who create and use knowledge. – processes and technologies by which knowledge is created, maintained and accessed. – artifacts in which knowledge is stored (manuals, databases, intranets, books, heads).
What is Knowledge Management?• “Knowledge management is a discipline that promotes an integrated approach to identifying, managing and sharing all of an enterprise’s information needs.
Where does KM come from?• Technology – Infrastructure, Database, Web, Interface• Globalization – World wide markets, North American integration• Demographics – Aging population, workforce mobility, diversity• Economics – Knowledge economy• Customer relations – Quality• Increase in information – Specialization, Volume, Order
