I just finished reading this book from beginning to end having very little knowledge on ERP before. I would rate this book 2.5/5. It didn't go into enough detail as I would have liked. The SAP screenshots are black and white and therefore difficult to read. It's not a step-by-step book explaining how to use the software. It is just a general overview of what ERP softwares are capable of and the benefits. What I disliked was the amount of repetition. The author is trying to stress that ERP is very beneficial because everything is in one place, communication is improved, etc, etc... This is CONSTANTLY repeated. We get it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition is just a big pdf Feb. 3 2013
By Steve - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm not speaking on the quality of a book as a whole; I'm talking about the eBook version here.

The kindle edition of this book is just a gigantic PDF file. You're not permitted to read this on anything other than physical kindle devices or tablets. No Web reader, no phones.

Because it's not a true kindle book, every page is basically like reading an image. Trying to increase the font size essentially is like zooming in on a picture of text; it's not reformatted to fix the new font size. Reading this on a 7" tablet is extremely awkward and, frankly, painful. It might be more doable on a full sized iPad or 10" Android tablet. While there were warnings of what type of devices this was supported on, there was no message before purchase that said something like "this is just a garbage pdf file, are you sure you want to waste $75 on this?".

What crap.

Save yourself the trouble, get the physical book if you have to get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The complete work of ERP explanation April 19 2001
By Sarawoot Chittratanawat - Published on
Format: Paperback
While they are hundred of SAP or BAAN or J.D. Edwards or Oracle books in the market, only few books were really written in "ERP context". Fortunately, this book is one of few.
The teaching experience told Brady and Monk that "teaching SAP application" to business students was not sufficient to make students understand the "concept of ERP". This is the impression for them to write this book. The foundation of ERP are addressed in business process perspectives; and then, mapped to the ERP process. One "BIG" case-study is used to describe the ERP component, with respect to SAP R/3 system. However, the fundamental is not limited to SAP package since extensions are also provided.
The uniqueness of this book is the combination of "O'Leary's book (ISBN 0521791529)" and "Jacobs & Whybark (ISBN 0072400897)". Like "Why ERP? by Jacobs and Whybark", Brady and Monk use a single case study to describe the ERP in "formal format" (not in novel as Why ERP). Like "O'Leary's book", this book gives the fundamental to understand ERP rather than "implementation of specific package".
Unlike "Why ERP", this book is the formal textbook, very easy to read textbook, not a novel. Unlike "O'Leary's book", this book is the explanation of ERP and interaction of business process, instead of implemenation and outline.
Another major advantage of this book is the easy-well-written is in 200 pages. Graduate students or passion-readers may finish it in one night. This book is also good for ERP introduction (1-3 meetings) for any Production/Operation Management classes or Supply Chain Management.
One thing that I'd like to see more is the "reference". While this book is quite comprehensive, the reference are limited to the CIO ([...] instead of many existed publications. I wish the authors would do more research in this area and put additional reference in the context in the next edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you want to understand why internal systems (sales, manufacturing, accounting) need to be integrated Sept. 27 2009
By Steve Keifer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book that explained the functionality of ERP applications. What do ERP applications do and why? Unfortunately, the book fell short of meeting my expectations in this category. Concepts in Enterprise Resource Planning is very focused on explaining why companies should purchase software in comprehensive suites, in which functionality such as sales & order management, materials management, finance & accounting are all tightly integrated together. The need for having integrated applications is important. However, the concept is probably lost on someone that doesn't understand what the various applications do in the first place.

I did have some background in manufacturing and supply chain so I was able to gain value from the book. There are great explanations of business processes such as sales forecasting, sales & operations planning, materials resource planning and production scheduling. The authors use an example of a snack bar company that is easy to understand and to follow. Note, however that the book is very focused on how SAP manages information flows. There is virtually no discussion about other ERP applications from vendors such as Oracle or Microsoft. Also, I found the content on finance & accounting to be very brief. And there is no coverage of human resources.

This edition was published in 2001. Since then the authors have published a more updated version which I recommend you review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would not purchase July 18 2013
By Ms. Ward - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We had A LOT of difficulty downloading the ebook, and had to go through a few steps just to get this to load on my husband's computer. It was not worth the money that we spent, and would have been better off purchasing the actual book. Besides the issues with downloading, it was just way to pricy. I thought the whole idea of the college "ebook" was to save a lot more money than purchasing the actual book.
