Top 10 Key Elements to a Successful ERP System Deployment-Key Element #8

September 18, 2018

AIT’s Professional Services Group is responsible for managing the implementation of an ERP deployment, making sure the project is properly resourced and executed. Our role with clients really starts during the sales process where we gather information about the company, its requirements, and the unique problems it is trying to solve. We get an idea of the personality and culture of the company. That gives us a great head start to hit the ground running after a contract is signed. AIT has developed a list of the top 10 keys to successful ERP deployment.

 

Top 10 Key Elements to a Successful ERP System Deployment

 

  1. Develop a project mission statement

  2. Get executive team commitment

  3. Identify and define the scope; map requirements to objectives

  4. Establish methodology, realistic resources, and timeline

  5. Identify, designate, and support key personnel

  6. Prepare your data

  7. Create a training plan

  8. Conduct pilots to work out the kinks

  9. Take steps to ensure things progress as expected

  10. Measure results

 

Conduct pilots to work out the kinks

 

We schedule as many as three pilots before go-live with each implementation. The first pilot tests processes by functional business area to observe how the system operates on a day-to-day basis. We determine what does and doesn’t work with these processes and improve accordingly. The second pilot is an end-to-end dress rehearsal to assess the hand-off from one function to another – ensuring processes are running as intended from start to finish. Occasionally, additional tweaks are made to finalize these processes and a third pilot will confirm our mutual assurance of quality before go-live.
