The term ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a management and integration technology that allows firms to better manage and integrate their operations. Many ERP software systems benefit organizations because they help them adopt resource planning by combining all of the operations needed to run their businesses into a single system. ERP software can connect planning, purchasing, inventory, sales, marketing, finance, human resources, and other processes.
Higher synergies across different company sectors,
Increased efficiencies as procedures are streamlined and information is readily accessible to those who need it,
And reduced expenses associated with obsolete and inadequate technology are all benefits of an ERP.
Although implementing an ERP can be costly, the return on investment (ROI) can be realized rapidly. Certainly, the benefits obtained (for example, improved productivity and lower administrative costs) may surpass the expenditures of using an ERP.
Phases of an ERP implementation
When implemented correctly, ERP connects all aspects of a firm, including order management, manufacturing, human resources, financial systems, and distribution with external suppliers and customers.
Purpose of the assessment:
Students are required to conduct a critical analysis of the ERP implementation in a given case study ( A case study of ERP in Rolls- Royce) and present it in a professional report.

problems, weaknesses, strengths, threats, opportunities, stakeholders, and entities interacting with the enterprise.
2. Explain the scope of common Enterprise Systems (e.g., material management, supply chain management, customer relationship management, human resource management, and
3. Effectively communicate and assess an organization’s readiness and strategies for
enterprise system implementation with professional assessments and in-depth technical arguments.
