where the required features are build into the new system, deployed and then tested for their functionality (Vilpola, 2008). In this phase, the customization activity entails bringing all the relevant software and hardware to be applied in the new system onboard, and then modifying or building the new screens and writing the new report displays based on the software and hardware to be used for the new system, as well as building the new system connections and creating the entire network architecture (Wang, Chialinlin, Jiang & Klein, 2007). The next activity in the development phase is the configuration of the actual new ‘go-live’ system, where all the decisions and system needs identified in the planning and design phase are deployed.…show more content…
In addition, the system simulation activity also creates another opportunity for both the project and the implementation teams to assess whether all the company’s and the customer needs have been met by the new system. The simulation phase also offers the opportunity for training the project team using their actual data, as well as enables the project team to develop the user training material for the end-users (Wang, Chialinlin, Jiang & Klein, 2007). The target goal of the system simulation is to have every party to the project agree that the system has been configured in the way that bridges the initially existing unmet customer needs and company requirements (Chan & Rosemann, 2001). IV. Testing The testing phase of the ERP implementation system is the final step before the system ‘going live’. The Testing phase, which often overlaps with the development phase, entails the actual testing of the system to determine if the new system’s functionality aligns well with the set requirements of the business (Wang, Chialinlin, Jiang & Klein, 2007). The objective of the Testing phase of the ERP implementation is to define if all the set business needs and end goals have been met by the system, to fine-tune the necessary last-minute configurations and finally establish the friendly end-user
