This book provides a good overview of ERP and its integration with supply chain planning. However, it appears targeted at the lay person with little experience in manufacturing planning and operations. The examples have little to do with real-world issues (although that makes them easier to understand perhaps.) If you're a manager and want to be able to use the lingo correctly, this might be a good book to buy. If you are really interested in gaining a working knowledge of the subject area, give it a pass.

As an almost novice in ERP systems, I found it interesting to follow up all the chapters of this book: "ERP; tools, techniques, and applications for integrating the supplu chain". The book starts with the history of ERP and descriptions of every aspect of enterprise production systems. Chapters on backgrounds for operations management and each module of ERP systems follow this introductory part. At the end, real-world application issues and implementation problems are discussed. Examples and attached simulator (MICSS, contained in a CD-ROM) provide further demonstration of real case studies. I recommend this book to the intermediate level of ERP users of developers.
