heal.abstract
This dissertation w as written as part of the MSc in Management at the International Hellenic University. This study deals with investigating the use of ERP in the army, as a tool for improving internal and external functions. The originality of the subject relates to the la ck of specialized personnel , mainly in Greece, in using IT systems in the military and especially the considered program, for which the Greek literature doesn’t provide adequate information in contrast to the foreign literature where there have been severa l attempts in assessing the significance of the new technologies in the smooth process of developing a competitive and well - structured army. Aim of this dissertati on is to highlight the importance of the use of an ERP system by the army and answer the key question of whether the common knowledge from businesses at the logistics sector and especially the ERP can be shared and adapted by military organizations, after having taken into account that there are no water tights between military and business enviro nment, and common practices from military organizations are widely used in business world and vice versa. Hopefully the conclusions that will emerge will contribute to the improvement of the existing methods and practices used by the Greek Armed Forces
