|Subject Overview:|| |
Enterprise systems are computer-based information systems based on packaged enterprise application software that support core organisational processes in most large organisations. Built on a shared, organisation-wide database, these robustly engineered systems span functional boundaries, integrate business processes, and implement so-called 'industry best practice' processes within organisations.
This subject provides students with a good understanding of the nature and role of enterprise systems and how they may be successfully implemented within organisations. Topics covered include characteristics of enterprise systems; the architecture of enterprise application software; enterprise application integration; process and workflow modelling; design of systems around, and implementation of, enterprise application software; and assessment of benefits from enterprise systems. During the semester, students are expected to complete three projects using a number of core modules from one of the most widely used ERP packages, namely SAP R/3. At the conclusion of this subject, students should have a good working knowledge of the core functionality provided by enterprise application software products like SAP R/3.
|Assessment:||Project work due during the semester (50%); a 2-hour written examination in the examination period (50%). Satisfactory completion of both project work and the examination is necessary to pass the subject.|
