Enterprise Resource Planning, better known as ERP, dates back to the 1960’s and is a process that applies to inventory management in manufacturing. At the time, software was developed to serve as an asset management tool for businesses to monitor components and from there, generate detailed reports on the status of these products. Over time, the program evolved into material requirements planning (MRP) to help with production scheduling processes and ensure businesses did not encounter congestion within their product lines. Today, ERP is an essential business management tool for many industries and can assist in making an organization more efficient, leading to increased productivity that improves your bottom line.
