Abstract:Projects implementing enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions are characterized by specific context factors such as high level of reuse, scope of the ERP modules, interdependent functionality, and use of vendor-specific standard implementation method, all of which impose risks known to cause various degrees of project failure. We suggest a remedy to this issue by tackling it from a portfolio management perspective. Our solution rests on earlier work by other authors and is a combination of a classic cost estimation method (COCOMO II), a Monte Carlo simulation process, and a portfolio management model. We report on the results of a case study done in a company site in the telecommunication sector.
