Class A ERP is often misunderstood and confused with software tools and implementations, but is actually a management system for continuous improvement. This book will resolve these myths by thoroughly describing the definition of Class A ERP and giving specifics for achieving Class A performance in a reasonable timeframe. Examples from successes will be referenced to and the author will build a case for breaking the journey to world-class performance into bite-sized, doable focus areas. Class A ERP Implementation will help organizations set the stage for maximum effectiveness of both Lean strategies and Six Sigma and establish ERP disciplines as the prerequisite to success.
