Properly applied, manufacturing information
systems can contribute to a firm's success. Improperly implemented, they have
the potential to become a burden that can cause a firm's ultimate demise. The
author of this timely book applies his fifteen plus years in systems
implementation to explain that failure is seldom the fault of the system, and
it can be avoided by learning from the experiences of others.
Discusses in detail how to keep your firm
from making common (and some unusual) errors that can keep your system from
becoming an unqualified success. Uses an integrated approach that combines
virtually all areas of a business into a single applications set to
demonstrate why systems fail and how to make sure that yours does not.
