Managing capacity in the intermediate term: aggregat … DO2-003-I
“Notes and cases of operations often seem to be based on the analysis of operating systems in an unchanging environment. The emphasis is placed on understanding and evaluating basic characteristics of company’s operations, working under reasonably stable conditions in terms of demand and markets. However, business works differently in practice. Markets demand competition and strategic change. Operating systems should be adapted to new strategic needs. Even in situations where strategic and competitive framework is reasonably stable (where the convenience or otherwise making of changes in a coherently designed and well managed operating system could be questioned), demand does not usually remain stable in the course of time.”

Carrera y Carrera: Glamour arrives to ERP SI1-123-I
The case examines the history of Carrera y Carrera (CYC), a Spanish company of artisan jewelers founded in 1885 which was faced with the dilemma of implementing an ERP system to cope with the growth and internationalization of their business. At that time, the company had gone through a phase of change having being bought by a group of investors led by another Spanish multinational, Lladró, and by the venture capital company 3i.
Given the high number of small Spanish companies, in traditional sectors, which face challenges arising from their internationalization, and using the three stages of the implementation process of an ERP system (selection, implementation and post-implementation) as a tool, the purpose of the case is to analyze the Axapta ERP implementation process and the factors contributing to the success of this implementation through the analysis of the experience of CYC during the period in which this process was carried out.
To do this, it will first be a matter of analyzing what the variables were that influenced the process of selection and subsequent implementation of ERP. Given that this competitive success is something dynamic that changes with time, it is necessary to also look at what challenges the company is faced with today and what strategies it ought to adopt in order to consolidate and increase growth both of the business and of the systems that support the strategy and the business.Academic Area:Digital Technologies & Data Science
