What is ERP? (Enterprise Resource Planning)

ERP is a widely used acronym for a type of software called Enterprise Resource Planning that is not so simple to describe. This is a light and humorous way to help anyone understand what this powerful business software tool is. Jonar Systems (http://www.jonar.com) is proud to present this original work which was programmed and animated by Dalya Gershtein.

    What a great illustration. I am a quality consultant in the UK and I like
    the workflow explanations and interaction of processes.

    Answers continued: 3) Try getting a job inside the management of the supply
    chain of a company first. Then you get paid to learn. Also it would be hard
    to be really credible as a consultant without some experience first. 4) If
    you are training on a particular ERP system, that would depend on the
    system itself. 5) You will probably not be able to get a job as an ERP
    consultant just having taking a course on it. Hope that helps.

    Good questions. Answers: 1) ERP consultants are usually exactly that. They
    try to understand a company’s workflow and then sometimes help pick the
    best fitting ERP system, sometimes help implement a system, sometimes help
    suggest ways of changing workflow to take advantage of ERP systems. 2) The
    best training for becoming an ERP consultant is to understand the
    businesses that use ERP first, and then learn the software later. You have
    to decide if it is worthwhile.

    I have a few questions… 1) what are ERP consultants (i mean do they setup
    an ERP in a business etc what do they do?). 2) Is it worth while to train
    as an ERP consultant? 3) where to get the training from and how much it
    costs? 4) what do we actually learn in the training (computer programming
    or just how to implement a particular brand of ERP in a business?). 5)
    after training do we get a job just based on this training or do we need to
    have previous qualifications e.g ACCA or CMA etc?
