Abstract: The successfulness of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is not only dependent on the vendor. The use of an ERP can harness enormous benefits for organizations, if the implementation process is properly managed. Hence, the successful ERP usage opens the doors towards many advantages and ultimately resulting in customer satisfaction. The manufacturing industry is one of the largest contributors to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the Sri Lankan economy. It is also focused towards the same objective. Therefore, the proper alignment between the ERP and the organizations who have adopted the solution in the manufacturing industry is viral. The overall objective of this research is to identify current conventions of ERP, ERP adopted organizations and its current usage, the issues associated with ERP usage in the Sri Lankan manufacturing industry and to evaluate several ERP systems deployed in organizations with the use of a framework evaluation criteria. This is an attempt to provide a comprehensive knowledge to the newcomers who are entering in to the manufacturing industry. Twelve organizations in the Sri Lankan manufacturing sector with their deployed ERP solutions are selected as the sample for the data collection. The research consists of a thorough data gathering process and it involves both qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques. This research is of great value to the new ERP adopters as well as for the organizations who are currently using the system.
