Properly developed Process Maps assist in defining the Procedures and Worksheets needed for a complex ERP system implementation.
Large ERP implementations are complex due to the scope, subject matter, user base, system, and so forth. A vast amount of resources, time, and costs are expended during the development life cycle of a large ERP project. User Policies, Process flows, Procedures, and Work instructions are usually developed – in some form. In addition, initiatives may be established to support users to develop standard processes. If the proper Policies, Processes, and Procedures are not also implemented with the system, the project success rate drops precipitously.
The Policies, Processes, and Procedures require that the correct tools are utilized to reduce creation time, and for the Policies, Processes, and Procedures to be accessible and maintainable. The Documentation must also have standard terms, modular structure, consistent templates, verified content, and other structural qualities. Subject Matter Experts must be available and cross functional process maps properly documented. These actions reduce the creation and future maintenance costs.
The, Processes, and Procedures must be easy for the employees and others to efficiently access, read, and understand. Thereby, increasing understanding, increasing standard results, and reducing the number of errors.
To achieve these benefits, the eDocumentation Process™ guides the development and maintenance of your Policies, Processes, and Procedures.
