This article describes the way to achieve the ERP system by using some modeling
methods to improve the Business process model and Model- based Customization,
and evaluates the future of EPR system, which as an important role in e-business in
What is the ERP System? It is the Enterprise resource planning systems.
It can integrate all data and processes of an organization into a unified system.
SAP R/3, Oracle Applications, and PeopleSoft are all famous ERP systems.
A typical ERP system will use multiple components of computer software and
hardware to achieve the integration. A key ingredient of most ERP systems is the use

The pervious the ERP systems are like, some departments all have their own

the specific employee according to the employee ID, so a person could not be paid in
the Payroll system without accessing the information from the other two systems

Unfortunately, standardized ERP systems also have disadvantages, too. Huge storage

Reengineering (BPR) and customization tasks in the software implementation. The
