Discrete Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers'' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

Services Resource Planning: How Integrated PSA, CRM, and Financials Can Transform Your Services Business


Enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and professional services automation (PSA) are all part of a standard software system for many companies today. But for project- and service-driven companies, an emerging type of software is making things easier to combine the most important elements of these solutions to support the whole bidding-to-billing lifecycle. Services resource planning (SRP) provides the basis of a system covering everything from initiation and planning to resource management, execution, and closing of projects and services.

Services- and project-based organizations make up a larger part of the business landscape today, as the economy has become more service- and project-driven in recent years. This project-driven service economy depends upon knowledge-worker productivity, and accurately predicting this productivity, including the time, skills, materials, and intellectual property that are required to produce favorable client outcomes, can help companies to succeed in a competitive landscape.

Whereas many companies still use standalone accounting, CRM, and PSA solutions that are not integrated, the new SRP applications in the cloud have emerged to remove those silos and manage the entire project lifecycle. Read this white paper to find out more about services resource planning and why professional services businesses need to consider this new type of software to help manage their project lifecycles.
