ERP Fundamentals Training

ERP Best Practices

Implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is not just about subscribing to software and pushing buttons. ERP is designed to support management best practices for controlling and optimizing the processes required for manufacturing and distribution.

For example, many ERP systems include a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) function.  An MRP software system helps businesses plan and manage their production processes and inventory levels, which means calculating how much raw material and finished goods are needed to meet customer demand. An MRP system can also help with scheduling, inventory control, and cost reduction. However, before relying on the MRP system’s advice, it’s necessary to ensure accuracy of inventory and bill of material, vendor lead times, min-max levels, and other data points.  Attivo can provide the training required to leverage these advanced tools and ensure your team is fully using every facet of the system effectively.

ERP Utilization

To best serve the needs of your company you need the right ERP system for the job, but you also need management training on how to properly utilize the tools an ERP provides. The Attivo Group delivers this training. By comparison, most ERP Value Added Resellers rarely provide this type of training – they can tell you how to push the buttons, but nothing more. This results in a lot of “shelfware” (software tools not in use)

ERP Fundamentals

Fundamentals training is crucial for successful implementation. Not only will this training be theoretical, but it shows how best practices are used within your specific ERP system. Including the “why and how” behind these software tools is essential to leverage the benefits of ERP. Some examples of the how-to training that we provide are:

Inventory control fundamentals

Setting up a Cycle Count program

Forecasting techniques

Developing and using Reorder Levels (min-max) for inventory management

Material Requirements Planning fundamentals

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) basics

Financial Reporting

Cost Accounting for Manufacturers and Distributors

Warehouse Management Best Practices
