Introduction

Tsai et al. (2010) cited that manufacturing industry is one of the major contributors towards increasing the global economy in these modern days. Therefore, majority of companies in the care manufacturing industry expands their business largely as well as remove the geographical barriers. BMW is one of the most popular and luxury brand in car manufacturing industry. However, in order to maintain the overall process smoothly and implement automatic result generation process, companies in car manufacturing industry implement ERP system. It not only helps in developing automatic result generation process but also allows the company in monitoring as well as regular interaction with the stakeholders through one system. However, in terms of operating ERP system within the business process, companies faces many challenges such as appropriate training, lack of support from senior management, compatibility issues and costs overheads. Ifinedo (2011) argued that in order to run the organization and become an organization of successful implementation of ERP, appropriate training to the staffs not only during the ERP implementation process but also after implementation of ERP system.  

This particular research work is taken in terms of accounting the ERP implementation related problems in the car manufacturing industry with a specific case study of BMW. However, this research work tries to understand the impact of appropriate training to the staffs during and after ERP implementation within operational process BMW.

The rationale behind selection of this particular problem in relation to IT programme is to understand the reason or the way why majority of companies does not execute the ERP system properly after implementation within their organizational process by the third party vendor. According to Al-Mobaideen (2014), in order to result out the solution of major problems regarding IT programme that may faces by the companies, selection of one particular industry may considers the influential understanding that helps in providing better solution for successful implementation of ERP system.

Interpretation

In order to confirm the statistical test that closely relates with the hypothesis of this particular study, researcher used the regression analysis model. In order to better analysis of this particular research study, researcher used the multiple regression analysis models. Researcher used the impact of appropriate training during and after implementation of ERP in the operational process of BMW as the independent variables for regression analysis and need analysis, method selection, training frequency, as well as post training are used as the dependent variables.

According to the regression analysis model, it has been seen that the value of the R square  is 0.40. Apart from that, it has been also seen that adjust R square as well as the standard E square also positive. Therefore, from the above analysis report, it can be said that the need analysis, method selection, training frequency and the post training are correlated with each other and its has positive effect on the training. The regression analysis demonstrates the appropriate training has positive impact on the IT programme success.

Therefore, regression equation for this particular analysis is –

Y = I+ X1 *1 + X2*2 + X3*3 +X4*4

Here, Y stands for the impact of appropriate training on project success

I = 2.82

X1 = 0.32

X2 = 0.70

X3 = 0.60

X4 = 0.61

So, the regression equation is

Impact of appropriate training on successful IT programme = 2.82 + 0.32 * Need Analysis + 0.70* Method Selection + 0.60 * Training Frequency + 0.61 * Post Training

 

Critical Success Factors Of Implementation Of Enterprise Resource Planning (Erp)

In this particular research study, researcher analyses the various critical success factors in terms of implementing the ERP system within operational process of the business organization (Shatat and Udin, 2013). According to the author of this research paper, ERP dramatically changed the organization process such as improve performance, increase the capacity of work load, increase skills of staffs, improve profitability, etc. In this particular research, the analysts represented that clear understanding of the organizational goals and training to the staffs during the implementation as well as after implementation are the most critical success factors of ERP system implementation. Through analysis, researcher of this study represented that inadequate training and education is the key reason that make the system failures and unable to execute the appropriate performance. Apart from that, technical difficulties are also the reason of failure (Ifinedo, 2011). In major cases it has been identified that bugs in the software application that installed for developing ERP system are the problems that interfacing with the system. It has also potential effects on the hardware difficulties. Therefore, this study, descried that in order to implement the ERP system successfully within the operational level of the companies in business industry especially in the car manufacturing industry appropriate selection of software application and training especially the software related is the key aspects.

Critical Success Factors Of Erp Implementation And Its Role As Well As Impact On Business Process Management

The researcher of this study defined the effectiveness of ERP implementation on the business process management for the companies in corporate sector. However, several critical success factors have been identified in this particular research study, such as selection of appropriate application for ERP implementation, business process planning as well as reengineering, appropriate implementation of ERP system according to the business process, end user training during as well as after ERP implementation (Wang, Li and Yang, 2012). 

Apart from that, maintenance and support of third party vendor of ERP system implementation supported the successful implementation as well as creates potential impact on the business process management (Maditinos, Chatzoudes and Tsairidis, 2011). However, for the car manufacturing industry, end user training is the main aspects of successful ERP implementation. Majority of employees as well as management is unable to handle the application properly. Therefore, appropriate training is very much essential as well as effective for successful ERP system implementation in the business process. This particular research study, demonstrated that training to the whole department has to be retrained for successful ERP implementation Apart from that, vendor the ERP system implementation has to defined the job of each employee over the system specifically. Through scratch, they have to elaborate the role and responsibility of performing over the system. This helps in understanding the role and responsibility of the employees in order to handle the system.

Critical Success Factors For Erp System Implementation That Fit With The Organization

Since 1990, the ERP system brings revolution or change in the organizational process of business sector. The strategies of information system help in adopting application software packages that fit with the organizational process and mitigate the chronicle problems. ERP system also allowed the organization in reducing extra cost such as IT team engagement, rapid implementation (Shatat and Udin, 2013). Through this article, researcher described that manufacturing industry have multiple operational process. Therefore, they have to maintain the entire process one system. In this research paper, analyst described the training is the key success factors of ERP system implementation and its success. Training to the staffs allowed in using the ERP system properly. During as well as after implementation of ERP system training is essential to the staffs. Majority of employees in the manufacturing industry is unaware about the application process of ERP system. Therefore, lack of knowledge always generates failure of the system. Training is very much important as well as essential in terms of successful ERP system implementation.

 

Causes That Influence The Effectiveness Of Erp System Implementation

The main purpose of this particular study was to demonstrate that training is the key factors that effects in the ERP system implementation within operational process of manufacturing industry. Through the process oriented approach, researcher designed the entire study and demonstrates the steps of effecting training to the ERP implementation system. Training during the implementation stage as well as post implementation stage is very much effective (Tsai et al., 2010). Through this article, researcher identified that end user training across the operational process s the key factors of successful ERP system implementation. Education is also the corner stone for successful ERP system implementation. Training to the end user usually emphasized the operational process as well as helps in understanding the concept of ERP system and its spirit. This research paper allows the researcher in creating a useful link as well as step between the training and successful ERP system implementation.

New Research Area

Future Scope Of The Study

The main limitation of this particular is the time and budget. In order to conduct this research, researcher got little time. Therefore, researcher completes the study with less information that supports the study properly. Apart from that, due to low budget for conducting research paper, researcher does not emphasize the study with SPSS software. Therefore, researcher is unable to discuss properly the potential impact of training for successful ERP implementation.

Moreover, researcher only conducts the study based on the information of BMW company’s employees and Managers. However, there are number of car manufacturing companies present. Therefore, this topic has lot of scope of future work such as collect information from other car manufacturing companies may valuable or relevant with the case study.
