Rootstock Announces ERP 101 Webinar Series

Turns the Complicated and Intricate Topics of Enterprise Resource Planning into Understandable Business English for Manufacturing Personnel

SAN FRANCISCO – JULY 27, 2016 – Rootstock® (San Ramon, Calif.), the leading provider of manufacturing and supply chain cloud ERP applications for the Salesforce platform today announced that starting Tuesday, August 2, Rootstock will introduce a webinar series that unlocks the mysteries of ERP for all types of manufacturing business people from engineers to salespeople, project leaders, buyers and other company managers. Hosted by David Bush, a 30 year veteran of manufacturing and ERP/MRP systems experience, the sessions will cover everything from a basic understanding of what ERP is to understanding how ERP interacts with almost every aspect of the manufacturing process.

“As ERP systems have become a must-have for today’s successful manufacturers, it becomes obvious that every contributor to the organization’s progress must have a basic understanding of the responsibilities and contributions of each inter-related department,” states Bush. “ERP is a comprehensive solution that touches every aspect of the business but that does not make it complex or difficult to explain. This webinar series will help all types of employees appreciate what different departments do, how they operate and what we can all do collectively to make processes work more efficiently.”

This webinar series will cover the following topics:

  • An Introduction to ERP for Manufacturing
  • Engineering – Creating Part Master Records and Bills of Material
  • Engineering – Creating Change Orders and/or Revisions for Data and Process Integrity
  • Shop Floor – Creating and Maintaining Work Centers, Routings and Procedures
  • Shop Floor – Scheduling the Shop Floor through ERP controls Labor and Machines
  • Procurement – Linking Vendors and Purchased Parts via ERP
  • MRP – Planning Your Manufacturing Operations Together
  • Sales – Linking Customers and Products via ERP
  • Manufacturing Accounting – An overview using standard cost
  • Manufacturing Accounting – An overview using weighted cost

After each original session, a recording will be posted on the Rootstock website –– so people can listen to, ultimately, all ten sessions at their own convenient times.

“At Rootstock, we have over 600 years of manufacturing expertise and we look forward to sharing our knowledge through this concise and insightful Webinar series,” Bush continues. “We want all levels in manufacturing companies to learn how work performed by individuals affects other aspects of manufacturing and how everything ultimately comes together.”
