EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE ON SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION FAILURES IN THE ENTERPRISE RESOURCE PLANNING DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

Mustafa Ali Mousa Aljaer, Adam Amril Jaharadak

Abstract


Enterprise resource planning (ERP) relates primarily to software for business management, which consists of many modules that are essential for the growth and survival of various types of companies and organisations. By allowing faster supply chain management, the incorporation of similar business applications in an organisation will bring considerable advantages to the organisation. In order to increase business efficiency, ERP implementation helps businesses to adapt and customise information flows and automate business processes. The implementation of the system was reviewed with sufficient literature to substantially support the significance of arithmetic and logical principles and basic programming errors, including programme typographical errors, syntax error detection, and programme output process errors. Furthermore, the declaration of variables, the significance of modularisation and the need to support accessories, the accessibility of library files and the importance of frameworks have been discussed. In order to recognise framework implementation deficiencies in the ERP development process, improvement of coding formatting and significance of coding syntax were also critically checked with appropriate literature.
