ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Question: When is Six Sigma not Six Sigma? Answer: When it's the Six Sigma Metric!!©


Six Sigma Quality is a popular approach to process improvement, particularly among technology driven companies such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Kodak and Texas Instruments. Its objective is to reduce output variability through process improvement, and/or to increase customer specification limits through design for producibility. I don't like the Six Sigma metric. As you'll see, it fails to pass many of the empirical tests for "good" metrics. In particular, it's neither simple to understand nor, in most applications, an effective proxy for customer satisfaction. And, its definition is ambiguous and therefore easily gamed because th
