Tools and Techniques in Business Process Management
Business standard software (ERP) overcomes conventional hierarchical and function-oriented structures. Distribution and material management, production, inventory management, financial accounting are integrated in a continuous processing flow of business transactions across departments and divisions. ERP software enables a comprehensive and interdisciplinary integration of business models and issues into a computer system.
Motivation and introduction:
1. Integrated business information systems (ERP) serve as the backbone of the application architecture of an enterprise.
2. ERP systems cover many areas of the business application spectrum and form the basis for the optimisation of business processes.
3. Understanding the functioning and performance of ERP systems is therefore absolutely necessary to create organisations of companies.
In this course unit, students learn all the relevant basics of integrated standard business software using the example of ERP. Students work on specific examples and exercises and simulate realistic everyday situations in companies. The practical session aims to complete a transaction from customer order to billing including the necessary master data (customers, suppliers, materials etc.) using SAP ERP. The functionalities are taught by working on exercises and case studies in the system.
