2)      Manufacturing
3)      Selling
4)      Payments
5)      Receiving

 Life Cycle of Business

Eg :
SAMSUNG  has different sectors worldwide


To maintain different transactions such as Invoice Bills, Purchase orders, Sales Orders, Payments, receiving, Supplier balance, Customer balance, terms and conditions etc  of the above sectors with less affords, it is required to atomize the all transactions.

To atomize the all transactions, it is required to develop the new ERP or to use existing ERP.


1) Development of New ERP :

            It may be developed by using software such as C, C++, Java, .Net, Oracle and etc….
            Development of new ERP involves high risk i.e complete SDLC is to be followed.

            1) Business Agreement  and SDLC such as 1)Gathering Specs, 2) System Analysis 3) Designing
4) Architecture 5) Development 6) Testing  7) Sign Off 
8) Implementation 9) Maintenance  ( 8 and 9 are not part of SDLC )

Disadvantage in Development of New ERP

1)      Time taken ( long time )
2)      Project Cost is an expensive
3)      Vendor Dependent ( Supplier )
4)      Weather it may be succeeded or failed
5)      Lot of Resources are required

8)      Not is to maintain the  project.

2) Existing ERP

            Eg : Oracle Apps and SAP

Oracle Apps from the Oracle Corp.
SAP form SAP Labs

à Development is not necessary.
à Simply purchasing, Simple modifications ( Customization ), Enhancement  and Implementation


1)      Time will be reduced
2)      Minimization of Cost.
3)      Vendor independent.
4)      Already Successfully implemented.
5)      Much enhancements and modifications not necessary
6)      Enhancement and Maintenance  will be look after by the Supplier ( vendor)
7)      Minimization of Resources.
With an existing ERPs 60 to 70 % of time will be reduced.
Only 30 to 40 % modifications are required to implement the existing ERP.

Generally any industry will spend only 10% of their turnover on the software.
Hence clients will prefer the exiting ERPs.
