ERP and Lean: How Lean Manufacturing Makes ERP Credible

This website discusses how Lean principles can improve Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). As is explained on the site, the problem is often not the fault of software- an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system can be an extremely powerful tool for management. The system plans future resource requirements through its scheduling algorithms. It then uses these schedules to predict the amount and timing for each of these resources. Manpower, materials, and cash flow are all readily predicted based upon the planning done within the system.
