Abstract: In this article, we empirically review differences in Key Success Factors (KSFs) between manufacturing and services. In a systematic presentation of 12 case studies, we identify differences in the reasons for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) adoption as well as differences in KSFs in ERP implementation between manufacturing and services. As a result, we draw conclusions on differences in ERP implementation methodologies between manufacturing and service sectors.

 

Keywords: enterprise resource planning; ERP; implementation; key success factors; KSFs; manufacturing; services.
