Abstract


The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review on the research trend of enterprise resource planning system (ERP-S) for the recent five years period (2011 until 2016). A set of criteria is set to explore relevant research articles of ERP-S through the academic search engine and academic database. Information from the articles were gathered and categorized based on their research focus. This paper presents two significant findings in enterprise resource planning system literature study. First, the research trend of ERP-S in the five recent years shows that the most discussed research focus is the factors that influenced ERP-S implementation. Within this research focus, a study on ERP-S critical success failure factors gained many interest from researchers around the world. It is then followed by a research on ERP-S implementation and the least discussed research focus is on the ERP-S general review. Second, sustainable ERP-S has been found as the latest type of the system which is still new. This finding indicates another new field such as the sustainable ERP-S to be explore for the future research. The findings from this paper can also serve as an insight into the current trend of ERP-S research for both academician and industrial practitioners.
