Studies are revealing that the majority of ERP implementations are failing to achieve the anticipated return on investment.
According to Carol Ptak, past President of APICS, approximately 60 to 90 percent of companies implementing ERP systems fail to meet their ROI objectives.
The primary reason for such a high failure rate is not due to a lack of good ERP software, but rather to a lack of education regarding this rapidly evolving technology. Most manufacturing companies still do not fully appreciate the potential or the complexity of ERP systems.
This workbook, based on the APICS body of knowledge, is for identifying and operating ERP systems and is not unique to any specific ERP software package.
