Abstract

This study intends to verify, through the perception of professionals in the naval industry, the presence of evidence indicating the generation of competitive advantage through the use of Enterprise Resource Planning - ERP in Brazilian companies. To attain this goal, two factors related to the subject were analyzed: the level of maturity of the system’s application in the company and the perception of ERP as a source of competitive advantage. The results obtained point to an association between the level of maturity of the ERP system in the organization and the likelihood that managers will perceive the system as a generator of competitive advantage.
