The Integrated Order-Fulfillment Process Using MRP

  • Avraham Shtub
  • Reuven Karni


In this book we describe and utilize three central frameworks for ERP and operations management: business functions, business processes and IT support: Business functions relate to centers of professionalism or expertise within the organization, and usually, but not necessarily, coincide with organizational units (e.g., purchasing, manufacturing, inventory, sales). Business processes relate to activities - actions and decisions - carried out by employees within the organization in order to create value for the organization. IT support relates to the computerization of data-based and knowledge-based activities and transactions, and the maintenance of organizational data and knowledge repositories, in order to facilitate and empower the performance of such activities and transactions.
