Abstract

This research seeks to provide an understanding of the MRP adoption process using classic adoption models for prediction. To this end, four classical adoption models were used to provide the foundation for the constructs tested in this study. The framework of research strives to investigate the relationships between benefit analysis, feasibility studies, organizational willingness and the mediating construct, MRP positive evaluation. A statistical analysis on a sample of 109 small and medium-sized firms was carried out which revealed that these constructs play an important role in the decision making process leading, ultimately, to MRP adoption. The analysis has, thus, lent support to the adoption models considered and might provide useful indications to managers seeking to maximize the investment in MRP packages.
