Crossing the Chasm, coined by Geoffrey Moore, define how product marketers need to look at technology adoption. But, it also fits when we look at APS v.s. ERP processes.
This white paper, written by Marco Bapista of Siemens, addresses the challenges when ERP systems lack the ability to take care of the real capacity of resources and whether resources are overloaded or have conflicting lead times to calculate a launch time. As such, many schedulers use their own spreadsheet methods for scheduling that are both time consuming and error prone. Marco goes on to discuss how to best use and integrate APS into existing systems and walks you through the process so you don’t fall down the chasm.
