Engineer-to-Order (ETO ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

Performance Feedback beyond the Annual Appraisal: Feedback via Technology Linked to Positive Employee Attitudes


Effective feedback is critical for employees to improve their work performance, which, in turn, drives business growth. Feedback helps to reduce ambiguity and uncertainty about what goals to pursue, to understand what behaviors are required for success, and to know how others view and evaluate one’s performance.

With workplace communication and collaboration technologies becoming ever more commonplace, and timely face-to-face communication becoming less feasible due to ever-growing virtual teams, performance feedback can now be delivered by a variety of media or technologies such as videoconferencing and social platforms.

The research described in this white paper concerns employees receiving performance feedback via media including e-mail, instant messaging, conference calls, online meeting, content management tools, or social networking communities. It was found that employees who received feedback via more technologies were more engaged, more satisfied with their jobs, felt better recognized, and had higher opinions of their managers. Overall, the results suggest that organizations should take advantage of communication and collaborative technologies in providing effective feedback and motivating employees.
