Hello Ramu,

Please send me your e-mail id.I will send you one slide which will give you over view of all.

I will although try to make diagram.




vendor MM -> PP -> SD Customer

SCM is supply chain management.

If you see from Vendor to customer ,it is supply line...So everything is managed by this supply line.It involved MM PP SB .....

CRM is customer relationship is with SD and Customer as name signify

For SRM,It is for Supplier relationship management....It start with procurement activity from Purchase order to Payment to vendor process.

PLM is product life cycle management,It is for introduction of new product into the market,it determine it's life cycle..Say Toyota launches a new model in market and how they will take into market and when this will give ROI and when it will phased out ,,,this software capture all...

If you see ERP is execution system.

SCM ,CRM ,SRM and PLM all fecthes data from ERP and re-process those and again direct useful information to ERP system only.

ERP system is called ECC (ERP central component beasue of this reason.
