A Graphical History of Manufacturing and ERP Software
Have you ever wondered when material requirements planning functionality was added to ERP systems? How about MRP? Or even when the year 2000 was first perceived to be a potential problem for ERP systems. Software Advice recently created a timeline covering the history of manufacturing and ERP software. It includes 17 key events that have shaped the ERP software industry over the last 50 years. It's a quick way to understand the context of current enterprise software events.
To complete the timeline, they are asking industry experts to share their ideas. They'd like to fill in the gaps and add another 15+ dates/events to the timeline. If you have any ideas or suggestions, email Houston Neal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
