The adoption of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system among large organizations around the world has gradually increased due to the number of its implementation successes. An integration of a primary technology that effectively utilizes an ICT system in the organization such as ERP system will have a huge positive long-term result on any large, medium or small enterprises. However, most Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia are still lagging behind. This paper aims to discuss the proposed pre-considered factors affecting ERP system adoption in Malaysian SMEs by using a technology-organization-environment (TOE) framework. Based on this framework, each factor will be looked at and discussed further in this paper on how the elements in the framework affect the adoption of ERP system in SMEs. This paper also explains how the factors will be used in a survey to be conducted later. The findings will help outline the strategies that should be considered to increase the understanding on the successful adoption of ERP among Malaysian SMEs.
