About the Studies
Aberdeen's results are based on a survey of 645 manufacturing companies with annual revenues between $50 million and $1 billion. The firm selected vendors for the two reports— The Total Cost of ERP Ownership in Mid-Size Companies and The Cost of ERP Functionality —based on the sample size available from its pool of survey respondents. Samples per vendor ranged from 41 to 275. If a sample size was less than 100, vendors were only included in the study if responses were uniform and consistent.
