If the company need to success in implementing new system, users need to be understand what the new system is and give a commitment to new system. By doing so, a company need to have a good management plan and implementation. 4.2 Business process changes when new system is implements, the business processes are also changed (Legacy systems are removed). Thus, a company should have a plan for these changes. ERP methodology refers to a systematic approach to implement an ERP system that will ensure the proper integration of the four components. We can refer ERP methodology to Project life cycle. 1. ERP Project management and implementations: Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to a broad range of activities in order to meet the requirements of the particular project. A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to achieve a particular aim. Project management knowledge and practices are best described in terms of their component processes. These processes can be placed into four Process Groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, and Closing. ? And nine Knowledge Areas that are: 1. Importance of project management in ERP Why project management is so important in ERP implementation? Because ERP project generally is a big and complexity project. It requires a lot of resource such as time, human resource, budget etc. Even though, a company has all of the resource to implement the project, there are many factors that can lead to project failure such as corporate culture, user resistant to change commitment from top management etc. From ?The Robbins-Giola Survey (2001)? 51 % of surveyed companies viewed their implementation as unsuccessful. An example of company failure was Nestle. Nestle spent $200 millions contact with SAP and an additional $80 million for consulting and maintenance, but at last the implementation was fail.

The Business Software covers a huge deviation of uses inside the industry or Business atmosphere, and can be categorized by using a small, medium and large medium. 1. Conclusion Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) can provide a lot of benefits to organization such as lower cost, increase level of data consistency, enable different departments such as Marketing, Distribution, and Manufacturing etc. to share information together, increasing ability to do e-business. Even though, ERP can provide many benefits, it also can lead to tragedy in implementation because of complexity to implement, time consuming, requiring a lot resource such as money, human resource, hardware, and software.

Enterprise resource is the all production sale and stock of buying the distribution which include physical, accounting and all management resources in very enterprise in which all staff and material properly, funds also include. ERP will manage all the management resources interacted altogether very well. It probably will keep effectively, the management technique concept that from viewpoint, it will manage these management resources integrated altogether enterprises, it probably will keep doing efficient management activity by the fact that optimumly it arranges & distributes. Consequently, Project Management is very important in ERP implementation. In order to manage project efficiency and reduce the risk for project failure, a company needs to know the high level concept, components of ERP, and the project life cycle. However, by knowing the high level concepts, components of ERP and project life cycle is not enough. As describe earlier, ERP implementation is such a complexity project. Thus, we need to have some guideline and avoid the common mistakes that help project manager to prevent an unexpected outcome and well prepare for the unexpected events.
