Examine the processes encoded in the software. If you can agree to model your company’s best practices based on those processes, you’re choosing the right solution. If you can’t, continue looking.

The project schedule is the foundation of a successful ERP implementation; it should be developed and monitored carefully. The schedule should be updated weekly to reflect real-time activity and progress, and regularly reviewed by both the project manager and senior management.

Find outside help if necessary.

Successful ERP implementations stress staff training. They provide training sessions regularly throughout the project, with special concentration during the weeks just prior to implementation.

Education is different than training and provides staff with the knowledge of the methodology behind their activities. Members of the management team, master production schedulers, shop foremen or even cost accountants won’t be effective unless they understand the concepts required to do their jobs in an ERP environment.
