ERP, Supply Chain (08-708)

Students are asked to provide an analysis of current ERP solutions for a local manufacturing company. The company’s current system is unable to be updated due to many customizations that required them to make source code modifications to the product. Due to a recent acquisition, they are now under pressure to have a system that easily allows them to integrate with their new parent company, which the current solution will not. Students are asked to first provide a broad picture of the ERP market space then key in on three to four specific solutions, providing the pros and cons of each solution. The students should consider functional and non-functional attributes of the systems and should provide estimates of both the purchase and implementation costs of each solution.
