ERP Myth or Reality?

An ERP System Implementation Creates Job Loss

A wide-spread misconception about Manufacturing ERP Software Systems is that the implementation will cause many employees to lose their jobs due to automation. While an ERP system will automate the information flow in the organization, this does not mean that it will cause employee job loss. Without question, there will be changes to some job activities, specific processes and procedures.

For example, if the product estimator at your company currently does the quotes for new jobs in Excel, with an ERP System, the process would take place within the estimating module. Same job function with a more powerful way to get it done! Beyond that, the Quote-to-Ship process will be improved with streamlined data flow to customer order entry to the shop floor, and right on out the door.

It’s a myth! The employees of a company are the key to the success of the implementation. Change is a challenge and with everyone on board, the sky’s the limit. At the end of the day, ERP is a people system made possible by computer software and hardware.
