There are three types of services that may be employed for - Consulting, Customization, Support. The length of time to implement an ERP system depends largely the extent of customization, the scope of the change. ERP systems are modular, so they don't all need be implemented at once. It can be divided into various stages, or phase-ins. The typical project is about 6 months and requires a team of programmers, database designers and implement or/consultants from our side. The length of the implementations is closely tied to the amount of customization desired.
We have different types of processes but they are all of a standard, modular nature. It is therefore crucial that we perform a thorough business process analysis before setting off on the implementation track. This analysis should map out all present operational processes, enabling selection of standard modules that are most closely aligned with your organization.
Configuring an ERP system would largely relate to policies or model of a company as how they work. For example LIFO or FIFO is adopted in managing the inventory or reorder policies etc. Such policy decisions are very important and must be discussed prior to implementing or selecting a suitable ERP software product.
