Welcome to EMC's Windsor - Essex Consortium Home Page
You can't deny that we're finally in the middle of winter, no matter how you spin it. Chocolates and roses are all very well, but you'd better like snow and cold or this month will get you down. On the other hand, from Feb 9-25 you'll be able to re-discover all that makes winter great by watching the Olympics.

At the December SIG in Windsor, held at Stratus Plastics International, local manufacturers met to talk about enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Those in the room were at different stages of their ERP implementation. Some had had a fully functioning ERP for many years, others were well into the pilot stage, and others were still in early stages of their implementation.
We were able to draw several insights from our conversation. The first is that an ERP system requires the total…
