We investigate the current status of enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation in China by means of executive survey and statistical analysis. Pilot studies were conducted to help facilitate the design of the survey questionnaire; follow-up phone interviews were made to ensure the usable return of the research. We sent out survey questionnaires in July 2001 to senior executives of 150 companies and received 86 returns, with 82 usable ones. Statistic analyses were conducted using SAS to determine the trend of ERP implementation in China, its key success factors, and managerial implications of ERP in China.
