Many times these problems are the reasons companies do not receive the return on investment that they anticipated with the ERP system decision.


The audience will learn:

  • The five key “Must Do’s” during an ERP implementation to avoid serious problems later
  • How the APICS body of knowledge can be the common language spoken within a company
  • Numerous lessons learned and implementation tips aimed at on-going system improvements and avoiding implementation problems


During this presentation attendees will hear many tips on what to do and what not to do during the ERP implementation stage. In addition, tips for improved ERP performance on an on-going basis will also be discussed.
