ERP is a method for managing and allocating a company's various resources (human resources, capital, equipment, materials, information, etc.) in an integrated manner, aiming to improve operational efficiency and optimize overall management.By uniformly and centrally managing the resources handled by the various departments and operations that make up a company, such as procurement and purchasing, manufacturing and production, logistics and inventory management, sales, human resources and payroll, and finance and accounting, we can eliminate inefficiencies caused by partial optimization of each department and achieve smooth coordination and linkage between procurement and production, production and sales, and other interrelated operations.An ERP package is a large-scale software package that includes systems for a variety of business operations. When implemented company-wide, it enables immediate information sharing and close collaboration between departments.

KCGI offers a system of Credited Auditors, which allows students to select only the courses they need from among the courses offered.Students can earn credits for courses taken through the Credited Auditors System by passing the final examination.
