This paper presents a method for analyzing the effect of implementing an enterprise system (ES) in the construction industry during the ES introduction and planning stages. The effect is a reduction in employees' work time.

The result shows that the effect of management business was the largest; most of this effect was on data management and review. After users became familiar with ERP, the reduction in data input time increased. The analysis method takes less time and costs less than using surveys to measure the work time and satisfaction of ES users. It can also identify processes in which the effect increases or decreases, thereby guiding any modifications of the ES before it is introduced.
