Content overview

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems are integrated operational information systems that support the planning, administration and recording of all operational resources and the business processes that affect them. The increasing use of integrated application and administration systems, such as SAP, and the stronger fusion between information management and organisation that has been observed in recent years make it necessary to deal more intensively with the architecture of operational information and communication systems. The course therefore deals with the architecture and design of operational information systems, in particular with their description methods. These are applied to information systems from production and logistics (PPS systems), procurement and sales, accounting and controlling as well as human resources in order to clarify the typical structure and mode of operation of these systems. A practice-oriented recourse to the current SAP system helps to clarify the knowledge imparted.

Learning objectives

In this course, students learn about the most important operative business processes in companies and their implementation/support in business information systems. They learn to adequately assess implementation proposals for business management concepts, in particular the process and data view.
