LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject is delivered in one 2-hour class on theoretical concepts and one 1-hour practical class on SAP ERP each week. The second hour of the theoretical class is typically conducted in tutorial rooms. Outside class, students will study theory and complete exercises designed to increase understanding of what enterprise systems are, and the way that they can contribute value to organizations.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
The key subject “handout”, including details of assignment and questions for discussion, will be available online from LMS. Key articles will be available online via the university library. Exercises for hands-on use of SAP ERP will be available online. Students will be provided with an account on an SAP ERP system sourced from the SAP-supported University Competency Centre at QUT. Lectures will be audio recorded via Lecture Capture and made available online.
This subject is relevant to careers as business analysts, IT managers, and consultants. Since almost all large organizations today have implemented enterprise systems, and such systems are constantly being upgraded, there is a large on-going demand for people with knowledge of this topic from both consulting and user organizations. Students will work on real-world cases of organisations attempting to maximize benefits from their use of enterprise systems. There will normally be at least one guest lecture from an invited industry practitioner.
