Abstract: This paper presents the design of the US Navy|s enterprise resource planning (ERP) architecture, which takes the as-configured baseline across multiple ERP projects, and transforms it into a converged to-be integrated solution. The result is an architecture-based instance consolidation that is unique; for the Navy solution is the first architecture-driven instance consolidation.
