What has been the biggest pain of your ERP project?
fluctuating resource commitment due to lack of aligned understanding about the investment vs. strategic business outcome the ERP will yield. in short, a lack of READy-AIM-FIRE.....too often it is FIRE, AIM, READY(too late).
One of the biggest pains I've observed is that the ERP simply doesn't have the functionality that the differing groups need. 

Engineering wants function A, R&D wants function B, and ops needs function C. Finding an ERP that combines all the functionality into a seamless unit is difficult indeed.
