It would be easy to expect that after tens of thousands of business implementations, ERP software ought to be mature enough to just run the “install wizard”, go get a cup of coffee, and come back to a completed ERP system. Unfortunately, ERP systems are so flexible and complex that a huge success factor for an ERP implementation is aggressive and extensive testing.
Testing requires more than just assigning manpower. It is an iterative process, which means not only testing, but evaluating problems, and fixing things. It means having valid master data available to support the test, and understanding the process you are testing. It means testing development objects, and how they interact with everything else. It means having a dedicated test client, which can be controlled and monitored. Each test leads to a bigger test, so there is a natural progression of testing sophistication over the course of an implementation.
