ERP system packages have the merit of reduced cost, rapid implementation, and high system quality (Lucas et al., 1988). Even though these applications have its own advantages over custom design software, they may face problems of uncertainty in acquisition and lots of hidden cost during the implementation process. Successful implementation of ERP must be managed as a program of wide-ranging organizational change initiatives and not as a software installation effort. These types of IT initiatives require change of the organizations social and economic systems, which then are got together with technology, people, task culture and structure. So, organizational fight to change is recognized as a significant success factor for ERP Implementation (Hong and Kim, 2002). Organizations have to match and adapt to implement these modern large scale ES Systems which are built with pre-determined business process methods. As a result, customization is important, lengthy, and expensive aspect in the successful implementation of enterprise resource planning system. It is examined how such companies develop and enlarge cliental trust which is a consequence of relevant and trustworthy customization. Considering the significance of ERP, an attempt has been made in this paper to select and implement the right ERP system for a prestigious company in UK.  Proposal for Rolls  – Royce to adapt ERP System By Kunal Chadha Company Background Rolls-Royce made a comeback in the private sector in the year 1987 and took over Northern Engineering Industries in the year 1989 which enabled Rolls-Royce to show its capabilities in industrial power. It further acquainted Allison Engine Company a US based company in the year 1995, enabling it- self to grow the company’s presence in aero propulsion and industrial gas turbines. This acquisition further enabled Rolls-Royce to get a major foothold in the US markets. Rolls-Royce then came up with the most moder n family of engines the ‘Trent Series’ which were used to power Airbus A330, A340-500. This series of engine offered good maintenance costs, long range flight capabilities, economical operating and greater thrust. Rolls-Royce is into Power Generation Market which includes both electrical and nuclear power, which also includes marine applications. Rolls-Royce is truly global business offering a range of first class world leading products.  Proposal for Rolls  – Royce to adapt ERP System By Kunal Chadha Enterprise Resource Planning System Innovations in the 1990s in IT led to the development of variety of software applications targeting at the integration of the information flow throughout the company and these packages were known as Enterprise Systems. During this period when lots of new software packages were introduced in the market one particular enterprise system known as the ERP system caught the eye of some of the world’s leading companies. ERP systems targets to integrate the business process through the support of an integrated computer information system. ERP helps in integrating individual functions systems such as Finance, Manufacturing, Procurement and Distribution. This system allows companies to swap their current information system as well as to standardize the stream of management information. Internet Technologies are used by ERP to integrate the stream flow of information from the inside of business and information from customers & suppliers. The relational database system is used by the ERP system with the help of the client/server networks architecture to take-over the important management data. The most important motive behind the system is to input the data from a variety of modular applications just once. After the data has been stored, it should automatically update all concerned information in the system. This ERP system can virtually hold all the areas of the organization which includes all the internal and external business units.

Another most important reason was to replace the legacy system that used obsolete technologies that lead to higher spending and maintenance cost. Most of the organizations preferred ERP systems which would in turn enable improvise the process of cycle time from order to delivery. In view of the fact that ERP systems are highly integrated, they have the potential to provide managers with better information to support decision making and data visibility. Data visibility is used to illustrate a one expression to different customers and to be acquainted with global customer as a single entity.
