While Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system demand in China has been steadily increasing,
many of such implementation projects failed. Keda Industrial Co. Ltd (600986: Shanghai Stock
Exchange), a manufacturer of large scale machinery in China, however, was one of the few that
successfully deployed its ERP solution in 2005. In this case study, we document the ERP initiative of
Keda from its conception to its deployment, study the factors that contributed to its success, and
summarize Keda’s practices that substantiated the identified success factors.
