Abstract: Today, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have come to signify a never-before opportunity for organisations to gain a clear edge over their competitors. In order to compete and grow, many organisations in India either have already implemented or are at the threshold of acquiring ERP systems. However, it has been observed that many times, the ERP systems are implemented without any planning or proper preparedness in the organisations. As a result, ERP systems prove to be a big failure, leading to a state of bankruptcy for the organisation. A review of related literature reveals a gap in research pertaining to planning models for ERP systems. Keeping in mind the high importance of ERP systems and the research gaps in this area, the researchers have undertaken an empirical study in two large Indian organisations with the objective of designing a planning model for the implementation of ERP systems.
