ERP is not new in Viet Nam, there are many big corporation spend time and resources to implement ERP system however not all the ERP project are successful. There are surveys suggest that around half of all ERP projects fail, costs are significantly exceeded, schedules are not met, and improvements do not live up to expectations. The truth is that most ERP projects do not fail because of a poor selection process or the functionality of the ERP software. They fail because of the ERP implementation process:
  1. Missing Expertise on Project Management Team

Every ERP implementation should be approached methodically. This starts with assembling the right project team, consisting of a project manager, business analysis, key users and IT staff. To avoid later knowledge gaps, the key users should cover all relevant business areas, including purchasing, marketing, logistics, sales, production, controlling and service. The team needs to possess the right skills for the job, and significantly needs a project leader who deploys their skills well in a coordinated fashion through the ERP implementation.
We can provide you a Project team which normally consist of a Project leader (PM) who have experience in ERP project management and your industry, a business analysis (BA) to generate your company’s process together with IT team. The team drives the process based on an implementation methodology, defines milestones together with your company and provides valuable training and mentoring for your staffs.
 

 2. Operation’s Processes Not Clearly Defined

In order for an ERP system to map the processes in your company, the current processes must be clearly and thoroughly documented. Process modeling is complex, so sufficient time should be allocated for this important preliminary work.
This is the time for optimization! GA can help you evaluate your processes and find areas for improvement before they are mapped in your ERP. It pays to reevaluate and reorganize your workflows:
  • Which processes are really necessary and useful?
  • Which processes can be made more efficient with the help of the new software?
  • Which workflows have not been updated recently, even though processes have changed?

3. Underestimating Data Migration

The transfer of old data into the new system is an often overlooked and underestimated aspect of a successful ERP implementation. The data migration is not limited to a simple Excel export and import, but all data must be targeted and meticulously prepared. The data quality in the new system will only be as good as the quality of the migrated data.

Our Project team can help you to clean up, prepare for data migration and mapping with new data structure in a detail simulation.

 

4. Poorly Defined Goals for the ERP Software

Many companies see the introduction of ERP software as the magic bullet solution to all their problems, but don’t take sufficient time to define the specifics of what they’re trying to accomplish or how they’ll measure what success should look like. Often, every department expects a different improvement, so how can organizations know which requirements have priority?
Our Project team can help to have clear documentation of what exactly you want to achieve with the ERP system and where the priorities lie. You can have a detail map where you want to go, guiding you each step of the way, you will get lost in many problem from end users, requirements, short-term thinking and minor setbacks that turn into project derailments.
