Introduction
Based on task analysis, Sugar Squared Inc. requires an enterprise system that it can use to run
and manage its sales, financial, supply chain and e-commerce functions. This need necessitates
for an enterprise system composed of the following modules: Human resources, online sales,
financial management, sales order processing, silo management, customer relationship
management, product lifecycle management and supply chain management. A robust enterprise

monitoring its escalating inventory levels are bound to be a challenge. An ERP system uses
barcoding, RFID tags and serial numbers to check on inventory levels at all phases in the

to monitor inventory levels at the silos, inventory on transit and inventory on shelves ready for
sale to end-users. This amplified silo visibility enhances the loading, shipping and offloading
progression significantly, eliminating all the presumptions. ERP customized configurations assist
in monitoring the flow of candies based on demand and the respective carrying costs. Th...
