It includes a brief description of ERP, including the main purpose (aim) of the report. 3. Analysis of the ERP (literature review section), including: key characteristics of this aspect, benefits, barriers to implementation, sustainability issues, and relevant risks. 4. Analysis of Rolls-Royce case study that has implemented ERP aspect. It is very important that you establish a clear and explicit link between the discussions in the literature review section and the case study. In this section, it is important to explain the following: a. Achieving strategic fit: • Step 1: Understanding the Customer and Supply Chain Uncertainty. • Step 2: Understanding the Supply Chain: understand the supply chain capabilities and map it on the responsiveness spectrum. • Step 3: Achieving Strategic Fit: Firm must ensure that the supply chain responsiveness is consistent with the implied uncertainty (demand and supply). In other words, organization needs to ensure that what the supply chain does well is consistent with targeted customer’s needs. Note: In order to achieve strategic fit, it is important to define roles and tasks to different stages of the supply chain (suppliers, manufacturer, distributors, etc.) to ensure the appropriate level of responsiveness. 5. Conclusion, including a brief summary of the report and discussing the lessons learnt from this coursework. 6. List of good quality academic references.
