In many cases, the requirements today are very different from the requirements ten years ago. Every company's requirements will be different, but the following ten areas seek to highlight the areas of business change which have implications for the ERP system choice, from which a specific and detailed requirements checklist can be drawn up. At the end of the paper, there is a functional checklist that can referred to each of the sections.
