Standard definitions for ERP can vary. These definitions are very similar to the definition of industrial engineering. The discipline that provides maximum efficiency by using all factors such as materials, equipment, machinery and human possessed by the enterprises is called industrial engineering. In this context, a system or software that does this is called ERP.
ERP software developed with a focus on production to increase the productivity of manufacturing enterprises at the first place is now also preferred by companies in the service sector. Companies in the service sector use ERP systems to manage their business processes in a more practical way.
