Our Case Studies for

ERP Implementation

Our Methodology

for ERP Implementation

The process starts with workshops and training users on the selected ERP system. It will also configure the cleansed data for the selected customers, vendors, and products to test and train on the to-be processes. The testing phase continues until the core users get the hang of the new processes and are satisfied that they will work for their function. The testing phase is then followed by the master data upload, go-live preparation, change management planning, and post-deployment KPI measurement.

ERP Implementation Methodology

Requirements Validation and Initial Configuration

This phase starts with validating requirements from the selection phase. And if additional requirements need to be vetted further before the configuration phase begins.

To-be Process Optimization

The testing phase continues until the core users get the hang of the new processes and are satisfied that they will work for their function. If the to-be processes need to be tweaked further, the changes are made to the data and processes. As well as incorporating them as part of the change management plan.

User Security Model Creation and Testing

This phase designs the user security model as per organizational hierarchy. And test them for each persona to avoid any financial control leakage because of poor security setup and governance workflows. This phase also maps out SOX compliance processes as required by the governing bodies.

Cutover Planning and End User Training

This phase facilitates workshop-style end-user training and audits end users’ understandings of the to-be process through several auditable processes such as quizzes and video replays. As well as proposing strategies to meet individuals’ training needs. This phase also reviews the go-live plan to ensure the team and site are ready for the go-live.

User Training and To-be Process Validation

This phase starts with training users on the selected ERP system. It will also configure the cleansed data for the selected customers, vendors, and products to test and train on the to-be processes.

Data Re-engineering and Master Data Governance

This phase further validates that the re-engineered data is consistent with the data model of the selected ERP product. And if any changes need to be made to align with the optimum workflow of each user.

Master and Transactional Data Upload and Historical Data Planning

This phase prepares and tests the master data with the complete datasets, such as MRP runs, and then prepares for the transactional data upload. This phase also prepares the historical data upload depending on how much historical data need to be uploaded.

Go-live Support and Post go-live Optimization

This phase monitors the to-be process compliance and accommodates any necessary process or data changes. This phase also monitors the revised KPIs and ensures that the new processes and data changes are able to hit the revised KPIs. If not, further changes are explored to hit the KPIs.

ERP Services

ERP Strategy and Selection

Our ERP Strategy and Selection services start with an assessment of the current pain points with the current systems and existing ERP. The assessment results in building high-level as-is and to-be processes and change management and process reengineering recommendations. This phase is then followed by RFP development, vendor demonstrations, and finally, vendor negotiations.

ERP Project Recovery

It’s very common that the ERP implementation would have substantial issues with implementation due to the overengineering of components or processes. The service helps clarify the architecture, remove overengineered processes and data, remove any unnecessary customizations, and rebuild the architecture designed to scale.

ERP Optimization

This service helps in optimizing the performance of an ERP. The poorly implemented ERP may have performance issues such as customers taking more than 15 mins to retrieve a record, the planning not being aligned with operations, or BOMs not being consistent with the needs of the production floor.
