Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
More and more companies use ERP systems to handle the organization’s information flow. The advantage is among other things, a superior visibility that will enable the management to make better strategic decisions. One of the problems with ERP systems is that they are complex to implement. Many implementation projects go over budget or break the time schedule. To try to handle the implementation as smooth as possible it is important to have a good methodology on how to implement the system. Intentia is an ERP vendor that sells their solution called Movex. Their Implementation model is called Implex. In this study Implex is compared to four other ERP models to determine if Implex has any resemblance with them. It turned out that depending on which perspective you have you get two different answers, if compared strictly by the stages involved, the PPM model best resemble Implex. Should one compare the activities that go on in the models, the answer is that Bancroft’s, model is more alike Implex. The second answer is more correct because it should be what happens during the phases that counts, not what phase it is. The paper also relates some problems Intentia encountered during implementation to some Critical Success Factors for ERP.
