Here is the topic for the discussion question which needs to be a minimum of 1 paragraph (2 paragraph max)

What is an example of how integrating with the use of enterprise resource planning (ERP) can help an organization, from research or your own personal experience? 


When responding to your peers, compare and contrast the example from the case study, your example, and your peers’ examples. Provide specific examples from the textbook or other sources to support your answer.

 

 

Next, you will need to reply back to these user’s discussion posts as well (minimum of 1 paragraph) (2 paragraph max)


#1 (R.B) Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP)

The goal of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is to automate business functions.  More specifically, it is a multifaceted information system that enables organizations to streamline, standardize, and share information.  Workflow can be managed electronically, and there is a heavy emphasis on organization-wide visibility (for those with permissions/need to know) of financial and supply chain information.  ERP can touch every department, from human resources to procurement, to inventory control.  It is used by private firms, government and military organizations, and non-profit organizations.

ERP, if implemented correctly amongst the organizations in the case study, it is possible that the tragedy may have been averted because the critical information would have been available to those who needed it when they needed it.  Unfortunately, federal, state, and local government organizations are generally very slow to change, and their departments often operate in a stove piped mode in which each one does things their own way, and in which little information is share between them.  Implementing ERP, although a long-term good thing, costs a substantial amount of money, and funding for such things is very difficult (although not impossible) to obtain when, in general, operating budgets are strained to begin with.  And of course, politics is in the mix too, and that is compounded by the fact that most departments think in terms of the current or upcoming fiscal year--no further.

I currently work for the Navy Air Warfare Center in Patuxent River, MD.  Implementation of Navy ERP took place there in 2007.  The transition was a bumpy road, especially for those who had been working a long time doing things the old way. Eventually, we overcame the learning curve and have come to appreciate its advantages.  I can immediately view incoming and outgoing funding documents for my projects as well as charges against them so I know what I have and where the money has gone at any given time.  I can enter my timesheet information and check entries from past pay periods.  I can check my employee training status and make sure I’m on track to complete my mandatory annual training requirements.  I can check the status of acquisitions, procurement contracts, and even employee individual development plans (IDPs).  Better yet, as many of our transactions involve other DoD agencies, we now have a standardized way of sending/receiving funds, statements of work (SOWs), etc.  Navy ERP was a costly move us, and despite the time needed to become acclimated to it, I am certain that it has saved much more money due to standardization, streamlined processes, and information visibility that it has brought to us.

 

 

#2 (S.S Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

The “Helping the Homeless” case has several issues around it such as confidentiality and privacy, therefore, making a CRM software tricky for this situation. It’s my opinion that basic contact information should be available to all agencies involved and perhaps middleware software could be used to sync the needed data across various systems. In order to address the confidentiality and privacy issues, another thought that came to mind was something like Interpol. Interpol, however different in nature, helps law enforcement from around the world to cooperate and share information. Although not everyone can easily access the information, Interpol can send out warnings to local or state agencies when the information gathered raises a red flag. In this case, information gathered from the 11 agencies Jacks sought help from, Child and Family services, past mental health problems (medical history), and the school system’s information could have been integrated and this tragic situation could have been avoided.
