Implementing ERP is extremely challenging and usually highly complex.

I would reccommend a great deal of research in both what you want achieve in terms of functionality and implementation theory.

There are plenty of text availiable on the subject as ERP is well established and has been around since the 90's.

You should be able to find examples of pre-defined checklists.

You could try solution provider websites.

Business Process mapping is always a good way of understanding what is required.

Don't underestimate the cultural impacts of change. Ensure to have top-level active support. Have a look at http://erp.ittoolbox.com/ this is a very good resource but be wary of the sales guys on there.

As previously mentioned , it is very complex task. Once you get to the shortlist remember not to assume that the software does something in a particular way, always check. Its important to know how the software can do a particular activity.

Beverley,
I have just started using the site today so this is my first post.
In terms of your ERP questions I have worked in this area for several years.
I have project managed 3 erp project implementations from within a company.
The selection of the right software is one major part, I had a good, a not so good and a real ugly.
Bench test them with your data as part of the selection process.
Management commitment and a vision of what you are trying to achieve is a cultural dimension you must not underestimate. If some key managers don't want to take part they could kill the project (very slowly, and expensively)
Multi sites may have different problems / issues/ cultures.
Mapping out the processes will hopefully identify what elements you need to implement. Keep this simple with flow charts so your team can see what you have laid out.
If any of this helps get in touch we can talk further.

It really depends on who you talk to. If you talk with the software publisher, it's the end user's fault. If you talk with the end user, it's the software publishers fault or the consulting firm's fault. If you talk to the consulting firm, it's the end user's fault.

according to my ERP implementation,

We seek for death by implementing ERP,

We wait for death by not implementing ERP.
