However, factors affecting ERP implementation are complex and abundant thus should be investigated contextually.The objective of this paper is to explore the key issues that possibly influence ERP systems implementation in one of the enterprise steel industry organizations.Several factors deduced from literature were used to further investigate concerning the relevancy of the factors in the context of the study.The factors were further validated through expert reviews with five ERP consultants using semi-structured interviews.Consequently, seven from eight deduced factors were found to be critical to be considered in the next phases of study which may involve model understanding and validation after the primary data collection.
