Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a priority for many manufacturers. According to an Info-Tech survey, 40% of enterprises have ERP systems and this install base will increase to 48% over the next two years. An additional 12% of enterprises are currently evaluating ERP solutions but have made no commitment to implementation. Info-Tech has created a tool to help manufacturers estimate ERP project costs.

One of the most difficult tasks for enterprises that are planning an ERP implementation is to estimate project costs. Info-Tech recently collected data on the ERP projects of almost 200 enterprises and created a model to estimate project costs. This note focuses specifically on manufacturers.
