You are part of a management team for a large electronics manufacturing company. You are tasked with selecting the best software packages for the firm’s materials requirements planning (MRP), capacity requirement planning (CRP), enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management, inventory control, shop floor control, and production planning scheduling needs.This project has two parts:
You should work together to identify the specifics of your company: size, products, production schedule, what your company is capable of producing daily, when and how you order supplies, when and how you purchase supplies, shipping and distribution requirements. Once you have a handle on what your company needs are, each team member should use the Library and other Web resources to evaluate at least six software systems available and the pros and cons of each.
, you must come to consensus as to which software best meets the need of your manufacturing company. Based on the information gathered, you will work together as a group to write a “Software Recommendations Report” that you will submit to the chief executive. Justify your recommendations by analyzing the pros and cons of each of the six software systems you evaluated. You will need to include information such as cost, compatibility with current systems and work flow processes, functionality, ease of use, and end user support
