This paper discusses the critical aspects that need to be considered during the implementation and the postimplementation assessment of an ERP system for an Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS) provider, from a capacity planning and yield management perspective. The stages to customize the ERP system to satisfy the existing business processes were identified. These included transitioning the MRP strategy, planning and production control, human resources and cost center parameters.
A Business Engineering (BE) based approach was used for streamlining the business processes during and post-ERP implementation. The unique characteristics of electronics manufacturing, such as the more varied product mix, were also considered while transitioning to the ERP system. Once the system was rolled-out, certain business processes had to be reengineered to overcome the rigid nature of the ERP system.
