ERP is an assembly of domains catering individual industry application. Its crux lies in the integration. Being a highly integrated system, it can manage the whole operational cycle of the industry.
The domains can follow any pattern, namely
- Supply Chain
- Sales and Distribution

And last but very crucial
- Financial Management
Typically a CA can find a suit only for ‘Financial Management’. But in ERP, being highly integrated system, the level of automation goes to such extent that the transaction flow from rest all domains end up in Financial Management. This is typically recognized as System Configuration.
