Abstract

Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands became an early adopter of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in the early 1980s. In the 1960s, Philips was poised to develop its own line of ERP solutions, but in 1979/1980, it stopped its own development and transitioned to purchased integrated standard packages from IBM. Nevertheless, early adopters such as Philips might have contributed to the start of the ERP industry.
