ABSTRACT
This article reports that enterprise resource planning (ERP), a business management system that integrates all facets of a business from planning through to manufacture, sales, and marketing has become increasingly important over the past decade. One of the more profound and recent influences has been the impact of lean manufacturing, which threatened to displace the "push-based" forecasting principle of ERP. ERP now meets the needs of most businesses, although there are still gaps in areas such as contract lifecycle management.
