Abstract

Implementing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system proven to have visible benefits (business integration, reduce operational cost, business flexibility and much more) that can be seen by many organizations, but the success of its implementation can only be realized by avoiding the common motive that lead to its failure. This paper explained various aspects that lead to ERP system implementation failure which includes inadequate requirements definition, end-users resistance to adapting to new methods, lack of top-management support. Different approaches are used in the implementation of ERP system such as comprehensive, pilot, and phased approach but the successful implementation of ERP system depend on the organizational nature. Enormous amount of time and money have been invested on ERP implementation by many organization only to see the performance remain stagnant due to the incompatible approach to the implementation process. ERP system is a long process and for the duration of implementation the performance of daily organization activities can degenerate, there are a lot of risk that are involved in new business process; therefore various recommendation on how to avoid the ERP failures are discussed.
