Identifies issues that can result in failure to improve efficiency of manufacturing operations, which is often the reason for implementing a new ERP system.

One of the biggest ERP implementation challenges is getting users and functional groups to change their ways in order to work with the new solution.”

MILLBURY, MA, USA, February 6, 2023 / -- In their White Paper "Organizational Conflicts in Implementing a Manufacturing ERP System" Peter and Eric Green describe how inherent organizational conflicts can cause the implementation of a new manufacturing ERP system to fail in its goal of improving the production processes which are at the heart of most manufacturing enterprises.

Legend has it that there are no scarier words for a production manager in a manufacturing plant than when the CFO says "I just bought you a new ERP system to help with your production operations". Also, according to Gartner Research, up to 75% of ERP implementations fail to meet their original objectives of which 17% are outright failures . ["ERP Implementation: To Avoid Project Failure, Assess the Impact of Change Before Starting Configuration", Gartner Research report Published: 25 March 2010]

The premise of implementing an ERP system is that it will provide a single system which will meet all of the information technology requirements of an organization provided that the organization is willing to reengineer its operations to be compatible with the methods used by the ERP system.

Most ERP systems are sold on the basis that, by adopting the methodology embodied in the ERP system, the organization will dramatically improve its operating efficiency and thus justify the cost of implementing the ERP system.

A fundamental premise of most ERP implementations is that the organization will change its operations to meet the requirements of the ERP system, which is where the fatal flaw often lies.

While accounting follows standard practices across a wide range of manufacturing organizations, their products, the methods used in production, and the organizational processes they use vary widely from one manufacturing organization to another, as these form the basis of their competitive differentiation.

As a result most manufacturing ERP implementations are successful in accounting/finance but often fail when it comes to integrating existing manufacturing processes.
