Training: ERP Manager

ERP systems have become a vital part of manufacturing companies. However, ERP systems are also among the most sophisticated programmes a company can work with. It is becoming more and more difficult to gain a profitable increase in the efficiency of operations while not spending considerable amounts on the required systems to achieve such an increase. Companies increasingly depend on system houses and their specialists. Therefore, external ERP consultants and specialists are in the position to charge daily rates which are exorbitantly high.

Funded by the European Union and the Freestate of Bavaria, the ERP Manager advanced training programme is designed to close gaps in companies and to provide solutions to properly analyse ERP systems, to identify potentials for improvement and to optimise them by creating company-specific “Best-Practice-Benchmarks”.

This three-month extra-occupational and practice-oriented training offers fundamental insight into ERP systems and teaches the required skills to understand, connect, integrate and optimise ERP processes. Participants will gain opportunity to apply ERP to their own company profile. The training especially aims to reach manufacturers in Lower Franconia, and was developed in co-operation by the TGZ Würzburg, the Campus for Professional Development and the ERP laboratory of the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt.
