Feature Delivery Methods This graph compares HOW each Non-Mfg ERP vendor is planning to deliver the proposed enterprise resource planning software system for non manufacturing. The bars show how much of each competing system is going to be delivered Fully Supported "out-of-the-box", how much will be delivered using the Report Writer, a Configuration option or 3rd Party product, and how much is dependant on Custom Programming & Scripting. The scores used in this ERP comparison are based on responses to enterprise resource planning system questions only, i.e., no vendor, pricing, or support responses are utilized. View sample 3-D Bar Chart comparison here.

Supportability Index A proposed Non Manufacturing enterprise resource planning system could look very good on paper, but once implementation begins the reality could be very different. The ease with which a ERP system can be implemented and maintained over it's expected life is controlled in large part by the amount of custom programming and scripting required to build & maintain the system. The Supportability Index is based on responses to Non Manufacturing ERP System Features only. This graph compares the potential support effort inherent in each proposed enterprise resource planning system. View sample 3-D Bar Chart comparison here.

Identify BOTH Non-Mfg ERP Features Availability and Deliverability

Unlike other RFPs that try (and fail) to gather useful solutions data about complex non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning system features, RFP Masters are not constrained to the use of summary-level "Yes" or "No" answers. This RFP Master ™ uses a Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) that identify BOTH feature AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY Method. This RFP Master function is useful during both the non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning software selection AND the system implementation phases of large projects because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


 

Determine the Risk & Supportability of Proposed

Non-Mfg ERP Solutions

Unlike other RFPs, an RFP Master can illustrate potential support problems (and risk) inherent in vendor software proposals. The Feature Support Matrix ™ (FSM) used in each RFP Master ™ categorizes the inherent risk posed for each criteria, and uses that information to calculate the SUPPORTABILITY INDEX ™ for each vendor RFP response. For example, a feature delivered "out of the box" FULLY SUPPORTED is less risky than one delivered through custom programming, even if the programming is free. This ERP RFP Master for non-manufacturing function is useful during both the software selection AND the implementation phases of a large non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning system because it enables effective Earned Value Management through detailed cross-referencing of usable software functionality and vendor invoicing.


 

Workflow Topics Included.

The ability of the proposed software to successfully integrate with existng business process workflows, or implement new workflows, is critical to a achieving the high productivity increases and ROI expected of the new ERP software system. This Enterpise Resource Planning RFP Master for non-manufacturing examines all pertinent Workflow features in detail.


 

Vendor Response Input Validation.

Vendors must answer each RFP question by choosing from a pre-defined list of possible responses. See below for an example of this drop-down list. This forces all vendors to respond to each non-manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) question in a consistent, standard manner. Eliminates the days of time typically wasted trying to compare the inconsistent or incomplete vendor responses obtained by using traditional, non-quantitative RFP questions! Ensures vendor proposals are easy to compare and evaluate!


 

Color-Coded, "Apples-to-Apples" Comparison of Proposed Non-Mfg ERP Systems

Non-Manufacturing ERP Software Comparison

These comparison matrices automatically change software vendor response cell background color to GREEN, YELLOW, or RED, to reflect how favorable each response is to your needs! Compared to the tedious task of reviewing hundreds of mono-color Yes/No answers, these colored responses allow problem areas to be spotted more easily, and risk assessment is made much more accurate. All required response comparison matrices are included and ready-to-use! Quickly and easily compare non-manufacturing ERP system proposals side-by-side, feature by feature, in detailed comparisons you control! Keep your Non-Mfg ERP project on-schedule and under-budget.

Evaluation Ratios

Use an extensive set of ratio calculations to compare ERP vendor proposals for manufacturing quickly and efficiently.


Weighted Grade Score Graph

Compares the Weighted Grade Point Score calculated for each proposed non-manufacturing ERP system. This is calculated as follows: The ERP vendor response to each ERP RFP question is assigned an unweighted "raw" score. This raw score is then multiplied by the weight factor you entered previously (default = 1) for that non-manufacturing ERP RFP question to calculate the weighted score for each response. All of these individual scores are then totaled for use in this comparison. This score is essentially a measure of how well a ERP system for non-manufacturing fits your business and system needs, prioritized by the weight (importance level) you assigned to each question in the ERP RFP. In essence, this score measures the SUITABILITY of each proposed enterprise resource planning software system to your overall requirements. . NOTE this score measures just software functionality, and does not include any measure of vendor background, expertise, support, or programming ability.


Feature Delivery Method Comparison:

An analysis of how each vendor is proposing to deliver the ERP system feature/function contained in their non-manufacturing ERP proposal. The graph below shows the percentage that is Fully Supported "out-of-the-box", the percentage to be done via Report Writer, a Configuration Parameter, or Third-Party add-in, versus the percentage to be done via Custom Coding (Scripting / Programming). This information is very useful in terms of identifying RISK, since a Fully Supported (and tested) non-manufacturing ERP feature presents far less risk than that same ERP feature done as a "custom programming" task. Also, see the Supportability Index, which sums up these detail risk factors.


ERP Supportability Index Graph:

The Supportability Index is a forecast of how much enterprise resource planning software support and maintenance may be required to keep each proposed software system running at full potential over it's lifetime. This score is determined by how much custom coding is required to implement the proposed ERP software, and which business processes depend on the customized software.


Overall Comparison Graph:

This graph compares both the Weighted Grade (Suitability) Score, Supportability Index, and the Vendor Capabilities Profile side-by-side for easy reference. It is important to see how much custom coding is in a proposed system that also has a high Weighted Score, along with the ERP Vendor Profile. The more custom code, the higher the risk posed by that non-manufacturing ERP system. Therefore, the more custom coding, the more expertise and capabilities a ERP vendor should have.


ERP Vendor Profile Score Graph:

The backgrounds, expertise, capabilities, and certifications of each vendor is obtained in the Vendor Global Issues section of the non-manufacturing ERP RFP. The vendor responses to this section are totaled separately from the software functionality topics, and this data is used to calculate the "Vendor Profile Score". The higher the score, the more CAPABILITIES a vendor is probably going to be.
