Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions are a popular method for enabling the business processes required to compete in advent of globalisation. The textiles industry’s global customer base has specific cost and availability needs that are forcing suppliers to become more sophisticated in the management of manufacturing and where this is becoming increasingly dependent upon the successful choice and implementation of IT. Case evidence highlights how globalisation pressured a firm to align organisation structures with business processes and business strategy with IT strategy in order to compete. It also shows the complexity that the choice of an ERP solution brings to implementation.
