Why is a BPR crucial before any ERP Implementation?
« on: October 14, 2018, 07:52:41 PM »
A Business Process Re-Engineering (BPR) is the leaning of the key components of an organizational structure to eliminate waste and boost efficiency.  And, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a business process management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage their business and automate the back-office functions related to technology, services, and human resources. The aim of such automation is to reduce human errors and ensure sky-high effectiveness while maintaining efficiency and productivity growth through a "single source of truth" in real-time.

You come across it all the time.  You see it in proposals or taglines of many ERP websites: “Don’t worry about business process re-engineering– our ERP software will tell you how your processes should work.” It sounds good in theory, and it’s what most executives want to hear in the boardroom, but how realistic is this notion? Unfortunately, it’s not very realistic at all.

Often in many organizations processes are not well documented, detailed or structured in a way that it's easy to be followed and understood. Employees tend to invent their own processes and get things to work without caring much about the existing processes in place, but why? ... Not having an ERP makes it even harder to track those who are not following the processes within the company... It makes it even harder to always perform that specific process the same way each time.
