ERP is derived from MRP

In the beginning, when there was no ERP, when the manufacturing industry began to plan how to manage its processes, it started from "Material Requirement Planning", that is, material requirement planning.

The theoretical basis of MRP material requirements planning was to use the bill of materials for production products, as well as the lead time of production and procurement, and the procurement and production of raw materials as the basic conditions to plan when to purchase? When should it be produced? What are the quantities to be purchased? What are the quantities to be produced?

However, since the production process is very flexible, and orders are often withdrawn or inserted, this causes the company's management to be erratic and complex (for example, the data input is not in a timely manner or the inventories are inaccurate). Therefore, the traditional MRP system is a system-wide operation and inaccurate data will be calculated because the inputs of computer data are not in real-time.

Around the 1990s, the consulting company Gartner Group Inc. first proposed ERP, which extended the concept of manufacturing products to the overall management of resources in corporations, including financial, marketing, personnel, human resources integration, and research and development.

  • Improving efficiency: Cloud computing provides high-speed data transfers and provides users with instant insights.

Every business is unique and faces different challenges at different times, so the question is:

How do you determine if and when your business needs to invest in ERP?

  • Team members spend too much time on some tasks that you know can be automated and simplified.

  • You don't have easy access to the data you need to make informed decisions about the future of your business.

  • You work with manufacturers around the world and use third-party applications from around the world.

  • Over the years, your business has adopted and implemented countless different software tools and processes, but they are not interrelated.

  • You spend too much time searching for information, trying to increase productivity and efficiency, as well as integrating and scaling new tools.

  • Company teams cannot easily collaborate or share information with each other.

  • You can't access essential business data and information when outside the company.

  • You're struggling to keep up with regulatory legal compliance changes.

  • You often find or address problems too late; in other words, you aren't proactive enough to spot the pressing issues to keep your business running smoothly.
