Abstract—Enterprise Resource Planning is a process for accounting-oriented computer information system
that assists enterprises to define and plan on the resources required during the operation process
of purchase, production, distribution, and strategic planning to satisfy customers’ orders.
Basically, it evolved from MRP-II which further was developed from MRP. In this survey based
research work, an effort has been made to study the outlook of ERP implementation that is,
factors contributing to ERP implementation, role of higher officials and successfulness of the
project. The integration among business functions facilitates communication and information
sharing, leading to dramatic gains in productivity and speed. Cisco Systems, for example,
harnessed ERP to help it become the market leader in the global networking industry. Cisco’s
ERP system was the backbone that enabled its new business model Global Networked Business
based on the use of electronic communications to build interactive, knowledge-based relationships
with its customers, business partners, suppliers and employees. In the process, Cisco doubled
in size each year and reaped hundreds of millions of dollars in both cost savings and revenue
enhancements. Autodesk, a computer-aided design software company, reported a decrease in
its order fulfillment times from two weeks to 24 hours after installing an ERP system. For this
purpose a questionnaire has been prepared and forwarded to industries for their response. To
accomplish this at this level, manufacturing industries are selected in India. For those industries
it is proposed to carry out analysis from the collected data as such analysis has not been yet
