Abstract

The research aims to study and present an overview of the contribution of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems to the long term sustained growth, development and streamlining of business processes in the wind power sector. The research topic is briefly introduced and a basic understanding of research question is developed to provide initial comprehension of the topic. The research progresses in a phased style and is composed of chapters giving an individual helicopter view of the topic introduced and discussed.

The literature review section on ERPs provides rich information on past research done in the field which is followed by a brief but comprehensive overview of the global wind power generation industry. The research methodology defines the basic structure of research project and the tools and procedures used to complete it. The case studies, alongwith individual chapters based on the perspective of professionals having experience in the wind power and Information Technology (IT) sector and those working in key positions in government organizations, are collated and used to analyze the various impacts of ERP implementation in context to the research topic. Based on primary and secondary information collected through various sources, the aims and objectives of research are analyzed and discussed and conclusions and recommendations are drawn based on the summary of results of the analysis section.

ERP systems could virtually be implemented in almost every aspect of industrial revolution and in almost every industrial sector but in consideration to the challenges faced by the wind industry and the inherent limitations of the sector, the actual role of these systems and their impacts on organizational growth and refinement of processes as a result of the implementation is studied. The approach has been simplified by collecting data and analyzing it with respect to the standard literature available and comments from professionals active in the field. Efforts have been made to clarify the objectives and to render comprehensiveness to the research work.
