Discrete Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers'' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

Feds Warms Up to ERP Spending, but Will Contractors and Their ERP Vendors Comply? Part One: Event Summary and Market Impact


There has been noise in the US public sector about a strong federal (Feds) interest in ERP applications. This, coupled with the Feds customary huge purchasing appetite for goods and services ranging from consulting to purchasing military devices and components, building, many businesses that have previously competed only in the commercial sector are tempted to feed the Feds. However, the Feds' peculiar and idiosyncratic regulatory requirements provide high barriers to entry, and novice companies that are not already offering the functionality for the sector will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in Defense and other federal markets.
