Modeling the Dysfunctions of Skills Management in ERP Projects (Published)

The causes of failure of ERP projects are widely recognized and have been the subject of numerous publications. This paper aims to detect new weaknesses explaining frequent drifts in skills management in these projects. It is a question of better understanding the dysfunctions of the current mechanisms of management and of studying their impact on the performance of the projects. A few studies have looked at phenomena that cause cycle breaks and which are the source of instabilities in the skills management causing additional delays and costs. From this conceptual representation based on Forrester’s dynamics system, we developed a simulation model for this dynamic behaviors study.

Implementation of Modern Garment Planning Tools & Techniques in Garment Industry of Bangladesh (Published)

In this research I have tried to focus in Garment sewing plan, proper implementation of plan & its execution by various techniques with IT solution. The best way to cope up the present manufacturing challenges in RMG sewing are the implementation of lean manufacturing,5 S,6 Sigma with effective garment manufacturing software like Fast React & Real-time data tracking and production management systems. This will serve our purpose of flexibility and save a lot of money by reducing production lead time, reducing the inventory, increasing productivity, training operators for multiple works, and by reducing rework.

Factors Influencing the Acceptance of Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) and Financial Performance of Saudi Arabia Listed Companies: Multivariate Data Analysis Using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) (Published)

Purpose – The purpose of this research is to examine the link between the acceptance of enterprise resource planning systems in Saudi Arabia, and the ways in which this can lead to long term acceptance of system. This research examines the issues of ERP acceptance, and the perceived benefits and ease of use, which a user has to deal with. Design/methodology/approach the research suggests the use of quantitative data, through the data analysis using multivariate data analysis. This approach uses structural equation modeling, which can lead to long-term change in the output of the data, and the link between the major hypotheses, which have been suggested. This ensures that the data collection can be undertaken. Findings – A number of findings from this research have been derived. It appears that the acceptance and use of ERP systems is central to the success of information systems today. However, the ease of use needs to be accentuated through training and support of users, which can be facilitated through top-level support for new systems. In order to reduce resistance, organizations need to take a proactive approach in implementing systems, and facilitate user participation, which can ensure that financial performance of systems can be improved.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are widely used in nowadays to manage resources, communication and data exchange between different departments and modules with the purpose of managing the overall business process of the organization using one integrated software system. Due to the large scale and the complexity nature of these systems, many ERP implementation projects have become disasters in the history of ERP. Since an ERP requires many resources such as financial, human resources, time, computer hardware and software, a failure can menace the entire business organization. The aim of this survey is to identify risks associated with the ERP projects, general and security within the Asian region, so that the parties responsible for the project can take necessary precautions to deal with those risks for a successful ERP implementation.
