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 attempted.
