systems in its core fasten the work executed behind the scene. ERP
systems infact have nothing to do for continues works. This is why
ERP systems are generally considered as non-activity supply services
behind the front. When the forefront jobs are entered the ERP systems,
something complex which have been never done before in the company
takes place by the ERP software behind the scene. The reports generated
by the ERP Systems are used to increase the performance of the company.
Which means that ERP systems perform unbelievable processes behind
the scene for the continuous works executed forefront which results
with reports for increasing the efficiency, decreasing the costs
which mean higher profits.
advantage of ERP Systems is not permitting individual systems to
continue in the company. All system can be controlled by the authorized
members of all functional units and so related managers can be informed
to complete their tasks. That is to say that in ERP systems all
processes can be easily controlled and as one units finishing its
task doesn't mean the work to be finished, managers inform all other
units to finish their task according to the schedule for a proper
finishing of the project. That is why with ERP systems the status
can be easily seen and related reports can be easily generated and
evaluated to not to permit the project to go outside the baselines.
The result of
the researches about the extra profit gained by the companies using
EPR Systems are very interesting. Companies which ground the ERP
Systems perfectly have an incredible increase in their performances.
management" or in its broadest sense "Project Management"
have been gone on for a very long time without any change in the
scope. The aim of the project management is to use the time, money,
resources with the maximum efficiency to finalize the project with
the approved budget, time and the quality. In present days the thing
that has changed is not the aim, just the tools. Today with the
developing technologies Project management is not a "Know-how"
subject, it is a "Do-how" subject.
The first component of the
management skill is to be the master of the information and data.
Both information and data is very valuable if they are reachable.
The accuracy of the decisions of the managers depends on the accuracy
of the information and data that are reachable. Unreachable data
in a project will cause troubles during the project execution.
a construction company all of the data from all processes must
be collected in one collective database. This collective database
must cover all data from quantity survey, analysis, unit price,
bid, payment statement, cost accounting, inventory, time keeping,
stock, current account, procurement, payment plan, work schedule,
(Primavera), budget, cash flow tables, profit/loss calculations,
with a proper format and when needed these data can be forwarded
the related manager with a proper report. In fact all these data
are collected in construction companies but with in different
software under different liable.
an example, data from design software, accounting software, CPM
software, quantity survey software, stock software, time keeping
software and etc must be gathered to create a basic performance
report. Infact all these data are gathered from these software separately
and put in to a file on the shelf to wait the day when someone asks
for them. If all these data cannot be gathered with an algorithm
that combines all data in a proper report suitable for the aim,
it becomes impossible to evaluate the overall project. That is to
say while looking to trees separately; the view of the forest will
name of the solution or whichever software used for separative data
gathering, data are not under control. If all of the data are not
collected in a single collective database which will forward the
managers to evaluate all possible solutions from easily created
simple reports, then the results are also not under control.
