Competitive Criteria Production quality alone is no longer a decisive competitive advantage. Success is also based on the ability to meet customer requirements for: time volume responsiveness service level Customer requirements in the future will only be met by collaborate relationships among trading partners on joint planning and execution

Why do Greek enterprises not adopt ERP systemsSOURCE: PLANT MGT MAGAZIN, FEBR.-MARCH 2001


Introduction time influence factorscoordination with the managementSOURCE: PLANT MGT MAGAZIN, FEBR.-MARCH 2001Appropriate HRsLink to other systemsBPR Less than 6 months 52% 6 - 12 months 48%12 - 18 months BSP 0%more than 18 months 0%Average Introduction time of ERP systems


Critical Introduction Issues1. Technological: Data transfer from the old system Adaptation to operational requirements (customizing) Adaptation to Greek legal requirements (customizing) System’s response time (load) Integration with other subsystems (interfaces) Hardware Upgrade Job scheduling to avoid lock entries and gain performance Hellenisation User Access Authorizations


Critical Introduction Issues2. Financial: Introduction cost mainly resulting from : hardware software consulting services intensive user training installation maintenance data transfer and customizing


Critical Introduction IssuesNo Yes (BSP) User Training Suppliers include user training in installation costNo Yes (BSP)No System Maintenance Suppliers include maintenance in installation costSOURCE: PLANT MGT MAGAZIN, FEBR.-MARCH 2001


Critical Introduction Issues3. Organizational: Cultural shock The organization was not prepared to deal with the high degree of interdepartmental process integration Adaptation and redefinition of several operational processes (Business Process Reengineering) Adaptation and redefinition of organizational schemes


Critical Introduction Issues4. Operational: Error frequency in data entering/processing during the introduction period was extremely high Continuous comparison between physical and system stocks was necessary New material numbering was a source for confusion. Definition & parameterization of master data cannot be taught, but only experienced. No matter how good the level of training, it can not prepare someone for the productive start of the system


Critical Introduction Issues5. Human Resources: It became extremely difficult and costly to find and hire personnel with (ERP/SAP) related professional experience and expertise. Great percentage of the existing personnel didn’t have any IT system familiarization/competency. Special care had to be taken for these people, to ensure their quick adaptation and utilization in the context of the new system The competency profile of the personnel had to be drastically upgraded.


The bottom line organization communication Information scheduling forecasting unification soundness transparency control online inf.s direct access on data integration excellent reporting fun motivation personal improvement order discipline know how upgraded services coordination quality speed


The bottom line After almost 2 1/2 years of operation with our ERP system, we do not doubt about the correctness of our decision. The successful introduction and ERP-based operation of the company became possible because of : the management’s commitment to change culture excellent project management, which was a corporate joint effort the continuously improving user support by our IT department specialists (business analysts ) and last but not least, because of the extraordinary personal efforts and dedication of the key users
