Following four long periods of point by point arranging took after by two long stretches of constrained gathering room pilots, the U.S. Naval force started their full scale authoritative wide ERP framework execution in 2004.
As per Susan Keen, specialized chief of Navy ERP, "Around 11 years prior, we had a few visionaries in the Navy who needed to look at if ERP would be helpful to use in our administration office". The Navy needed to progress from a few approximately coordinated, custom-constructed ERP frameworks to a focal business programming application which would incorporate the basic leadership procedures and business exercises in territories, for example, acquirement,

The arranging paid off and the information change met the slated plan.

Notwithstanding picking up venture administration initiative and responsibility, the change empowered the Navy to use new work breakdown structures, coordinated ace calendars and earned esteem administration (EVM) frameworks. The Navy ERP venture administration office is principally worked from Annapolis with 55 government staff and upwards of 500 contractual workers.
