Abstract

The study was conducted to understand the phenomenon of ERP implementation and its impact on the maintenance management in the manufacturing sector of Pakistan. The ERP implementation was actually operationalized through production efficiency, cost-optimization and spare parts inventory management in order to understand their impact on the maintenance management in the manufacturing sector. Moreover, the study included the scholarly work of various authors in order to understand the phenomenon in detail. Although, the research was conducted quantitatively through developing one close-ended questionnaire and then data was collected from 390 individuals presently working in the manufacturing sector of Pakistan. The researcher found through descriptive analysis that, most of the participants were between 25- 35 age bracket and belonged to either production or maintenance department. It was further found that data is considered to b        e distributed normally and hence, can be used for further analysis. The researcher found ultimately that, there is a significant relationship between production efficiency, cost-optimization, spare-parts inventory management in terms of ERP implementation and maintenance management in the manufacturing sector of Pakistan. In addition to that, the strength of relationship was strong in nature in all three hypothesis and model fit suggested that, the independent variables are 84% related with the dependent variable.
