Process 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, human resources) and include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, many solutions that were formerly considered peripheral (product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), reporting, etc.). While 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 old adage is "Such a beginning, such an end", and, consequently, many ERP systems' failures could be traced back to a bad software selection. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers' IT technology with their business strategy, and subsequent software selection. This is the perfect time to create the business case and energize the entire organization towards the vision sharing and a buy in, both being the Key Success Factors (KSFs). Yet, these steps are very often neglected despite the amount of expert literature and articles that emphasize their importance.

The Art, Science & Software Behind (Optimal) Retail Pricing - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog post series expanded on some of TEC’s earlier articles about companies’ need for better pricing management and optimization practices. This series, which focuses on the complexity of pricing and promotions in retailing, was inspired by JDA Software’s recent “edu-nouncement” on leading retailers consumer-centric pricing and promotions strategies and by Revionics’ recent (and

Thus, it is fair to say that JDA's retail price optimization capabilities are today comparable to, say, DemandTec 's. While the retail pricing specialist DemandTec still might have a significant advantage over JDA in terms of a very strong reference list (a veritable who's who  of retail), one key differentiator for JDA could be  its “one view of demand” Read More

Evaluating Enterprise Software - Business Process or Feature/Function-Based Approach? All the above, Perhaps?


Owing to learning from the past experiences and to the help of specialized selection service providers, selecting an enterprise package has to a degree, become a routine occurrence in the life of an IT organization. Recently however, there has been much noise created by some pundits and vendors belittling the supposedly "archaic" way of selecting software through functions and features. Contrary to that, they would rather sell "business processes" or "solutions," further confusing the already overwhelmed customer. The nagging doubts and questions like "Have we been selecting software the wrong way all this time?!" naturally abound.

When these criteria have eventually been pinpointed and submitted to (hopefully) the most appropriate vendors, project teams often have no objective ability to effectively prioritize the different criteria relative to one another. As a result, final priorities are often more the result Read More
