Headaches Buying New ERP System

As P.T. Barnum is reputed to have said "There's a sucker born every minute". Also, "A fool and his money are soon parted", is attributed to Dr. John Bridges in 1587 and often repeated since.

Both are highly applicable to manufacturing and industrial distribution organizations that purchase a new ERP system in the fond hope that it will solve all their operations management problems.
