How to create charts of erp software?
Hello Ava Larry,
ERP is a wide system with multiple processes. In order to understand how ERP works you must try to break it down first to simple procedures.
To start, you must learn how the basic process flow. You can do so by observing how a single procedure work like Sales or Manufacturing Procedures. Then make a flowchart out of it. Make sure to add situations when a procedure fails and add them to your flowchart.
(If the process leads you to a different part of a process or if it goes to another department, make a note on it and get back to it later.)
After that, you can now work on the data flow. See how a data goes from one hand to another. This is like a process flow but this concerns more about the data. This is needed if you need to know about how a database is used.
Compare both the Flowchart and Data Flow Diagram and see if it is consistent.
Now do the same to all procedures.
To represent the ERP better you need to show both the Flowchart and Data Flow Diagram and their relation.
Hope this helps.
