What is ERP?
• An ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning system integrates information and business processes to enable information entered once to be shared throughout the organization. • ERP had its origins in manufacturing and production planning. In the mid-90’s it was extended to other backoffice functions such as financial management and human resource management. • More recently these systems have addressed applications specific to higher education such as student systems and grants management.

Common examples include SAP, PeopleSoft, Banner and Oracle.

The Players
• SAP R/3- still must maintain mainframe architecture of large R/2 user population. Strong finance and accounting. By far the largest vendor (approx. 30% market share). • Baan - known for manufacturing, distribution, process modeling modules - web and Internet. • PeopleSoft - known for human resource package. • Oracle- simplest product to install and support. Recently advertising flow manufacturing enhancement. • J.D. Edwards - SCM module (SCOREx) WSJ 11/17/98. • Manugistics - Distribution - truck loading and routing focus.

What are the Benefits of ERP?
• Improve access to information • Improve workflow and efficiency • Improve controls and program alerts • Process reengineering – update old processes • Foundation for new processes, such as eprocurement, with significant ROI

ERP Lifecycle
• Planning
– Most important part – Fit-gap – Functional and technical parties must be involved and work hand-in-hand

• Execution
– KISS – Avoid customizations – Who makes decisions (Customize vs. BPR)?

• Post-Implementation
– The system will NOT be 100% when you

• The time and resources required to implement and maintain ERP systems far exceed original expectations • The purchase price for ERP software is the most visible expense, but implementation and maintenance contains many hidden costs • Organizations fail to recognize the true Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of ERP systems and often make policy decisions early in the implementation plan that likely have long-term impacts on the TCO

Problem contd…..
• Tend to make decisions with little solid information. This happens simply because we are running out of time! • Sometimes our decisions come back to haunt us in the long-term. • Have not fully extended the ERP capabilities let alone create new capabilities • The inability to move forward in the ERP lifecycle prevents realization of the full potential benefit of ERP (West and Daigle 2004). • Unable to get the decision makers to see the big picture

ERP Project Management
• One of the most important decisions on an ERP is the selection of the project manager • The PM should be a professional manager with experience with project management, loyal to the university, with both functional and technical knowledge. • Use a standard methodology to provide guidance and structure to the project • In addition, to the project manager, there should be functional and technical managers. • Individual functional teams, such as grants management, should have a designated lead. • Use of committees and executive steering group

Reasons for Implementing SAP R/3
• Desire to standardize and improve processes • To improve the level of systems integration • To improve information quality

ERP is a business wide common system. Can integrate all of our business units. Very expensive and time intensive. Proper implementation can help the business function better. • Poor implementation can hurt the business immensely. • Training • • • •
