Abstract [en]

An implementation project of an ERP system results in large changes. Organizations

that face an ERP implementation project have several risks to

consider in order to avoid problems that cause failures. The purpose of

this research is to extend existing models and create a method for implementation

of ERP systems. The method has then been employed to an

ongoing project at the department of Procurement and Supply at Ericsson

Mobile Platforms in Lund. Objectives for the research are to consider

which implementation strategy can be used and how an organization can

minimize risks.

The research approach and methodology is influenced by the qualitative

research method since it was necessary to gather qualitative facts instead

of quantitative facts. Included is also a case study due to the research is

executed within Ericsson Mobile Platforms in Lund.

There are two main opposite implementation strategies, Big Bang and

Step-by-Step. The choice of implementation strategy depends on number

of factors like the size of the organizations, complexity and resources.

A method of ERP implementation has been put forward as a result of the

integrated models. The method includes an overall model and a check list.

Risk identification is a problem that many implementation project faces, a

way to solve this is to make a careful risk analysis, a risk matirx with several

identified risks are putted forward throughout this study.
