2. Executive Education
1/2 Day Executive Overview
This overview of Enterprise Systems focuses on the role of the executives during implementation and the key success factors for implementation. An overview of the core functions and the basic mechanics is provided. The role of systems in performance improvements is also described.
1 Day Executive Overview
Our day long program provides more detail on benefits analysis, organization of the project internally and preparation for implementation. Key functions such as forecasting, master production scheduling, finite production scheduling, and material requirements planning are also covered, depending on your specific needs and priorities.
2 Day Executive Simulation Program
Using actual company product data and your current systems, we involve key functional managers as leaders to help develop a simulation of what running an Enterprise System would be like at your company. Illustrations of the output are presented by your own personnel to help executives appreciate the difference between the way you operate now and the use of an integrated business system.
3. Project Team/Management Education
Specialized Session Packages (per session)
To maximize the benefit and retention of education, we offer short 2 to 3 hour comprehensive sessions, several times per week, or back to back in 1 or 2 day sessions. This approach minimizes burn out, is less expensive than other alternatives and is least disruptive to the work environment. It also allows participants to start identifying issues, and initiate some preparation steps concurrently with the sessions. This creates tangible and valuable benefits even before implementation starts. The selection of topics includes:
- ERP Overview
- Current Systems Review Approach
- Current Systems Performance Assessment Approach
- Project Organization
- Cost Benefit Analysis
- Sales Forecasting
- Distribution Requirements Planning
- Master Production Scheduling (MPS)
- Production Scheduling
- Bill of Materials and Routings (Formulations)
- Inventory Control
- Material Requirement Planning (MRP)

1 to 3 Day ERP Mechanics Workshops
More in depth workshops are offered for most of the above subjects. We customize these for the industry (aerospace, automotive, food processing, chemical, etc.). In addition, we can shape these to the individual company and its products at minimal additional cost. The objective of these workshops is to guide the project team’s work in the area in question (structuring bills of material for example). We can combine these with software package training if appropriate.

Whether you are beginning a new systems implementation or re-implementing an existing system, it is necessary to ensure your people have both conceptual education and detailed hands-on training.
