Abstract

This studys objective is to investigate the interaction between an enterprises ERP system and its maintenance planning system. The primary data were collected using a structured questionnaire in a descriptive and analytical cross- sectional survey. To accomplish the goal of this study, data collection was conducted by giving a questionnaire to a selected group of top managers, supervisors, and engineers at Lafarge Cement Jordan. The findings indicate that an ERP systems (workforce, information) component has a favorable and statistically significant link with equipment availability. The findings indicate that the (Spares Tools & Materials, Outsourcing,) component of an ERP system has insignificant effect on equipment availability. The outcome of the other model indicated that an ERP systems (Spares Tools & Materials, Outsourcing, and Workforce) components have a positive and substantial link with workforce utilization. The findings indicate that the (Information) component of an ERP system has a negligible effect on workforce utilization. A future research target for the characteristics is to expand on the present attributes by incorporating maintenance activities for vendor-supplied patches and designing and implementing a comprehensive set of paperless maintenance forms for managing and recording all maintenance operations.
