Course Information / Description
COURSE OBJECTIVES: This course will examine the design, control and operation of accounting information systems in a computerized organizational environment with a strong business process orientation. The accounting information system is at the heart of a companies’ enterprise systems. To this end, an understanding and appreciation of accounting information systems is critical to successfully managing, auditing and developing systems to support today’s evolving business environment. This course offers a focused look at accounting information systems as part of enterprise resource planning systems, with a focus on SAP and other comparable enterprise systems to demonstrate concepts. Three key themes throughout the course are enterprise systems, E-business, and internal control and how these components can positively impact the overall success of a company and a company’s use of their accounting information system.
The main learning objectives are: • Gain knowledge of tools for understanding, explaining, and designing accounting information systems with a business process approach and a focus on adding value through identifying the information needs of decision makers and building systems to support those needs effectively and efficiently, while ensuring proper control. Acquire a conceptual understanding of the roles of accounting information and information technology in today's business environment. Gain a basic knowledge regarding business processes, accounting elements within business processes, and related internal control. Develop an in-depth awareness of the impact of accounting information systems and the power of integrated accounting information systems such as SAP R/3 on managerial decision- making, as well as organizational competitiveness.
• • •
This course will be a stepping stone for other advanced enterprise systems courses such as AIM 6338: Accounting Systems Analysis and Design with SAP, MIS 6319: Enterprise Resource Computing, and AIM 6349: IT Strategy and Control. Course Prerequisites: Required: AIM 6201 and AIM 6202 or course(s) equivalent to undergraduate accounting principles. Basic knowledge of financial and managerial accounting is essentia l. Basic computer proficiency is essential.

This course is developed using a web course tool called WebCT. It is to be delivered entirely online. You will be notified by email about the course access information at the start of the course. You’ll need to have a UTD NetID and password (your UTD Unix/Email ID and password) to access the course. If you have not used a UTD NetID account yet, you can go to http://netid.utdallas.edu to initiate your account shortly before or at the start of the semester. Your UTD NetID is your WebCT ID to be used to log on to the UTD WebCT courses. For more information, please check out this NetID FAQs page. The URL for the course login page is: http://webct.utdallas.edu. You can login to the course whenever you want. You are required to meet any deadlines for the assignments and exams and also any schedules for class activities or tasks the course requires. You should login to the course site at least 3-4 times per week to check all course updates, discussion board messages and so on. I strongly recommend checking ALL webCT email and ALL discussion postings daily. You’ll access “My WebCT” page after you login. The page lists all the courses in which you’re registered. You can click the course title to access the course Home page which displays several icon links. Clicking each icon link will take you to different subsidiary pages containing the course content elements or built-in course tools.

WebCT built-in communication tools: There are four built-in communication tools to facilitate learning, communication and collaboration.1) A course conferencing system, the Discussion Board, allows the communications among all course participants. Discussion topics or groups can be set up for topic discussions and homework assignments. 2) You can use course Mail tool to communicate privately with instructor and classmates. 3) The Chat tool can be used for real time communication among course participates. Please see specific information for accessing Chat tool. 4) Finally there is a Whiteboard tool also allows real-time interaction among course participants using a graphical interface. The Instructor may schedule times to use the Chat and/or Whiteboard tools for office hours and/or class discussion sessions. Small groups may also use Chat for group discussions. Interaction with Instructor: I will communicate with students mainly using the course Discussion Board. Please use the discussion board for all questions that would be general in nature (ask yourself: “Would the response to my question be something others in the class could benefit from?” If yes, then please use the Discussion Board). In addition to this, students may send personal concerns or questions to me using the course E-mail tool. I will reply to student Discussion Board messages or emails within 3 working days under normal circumstances. Emailing: Besides using the WebCT course internal email, if there is any need, students may contact me via external regular emails. UTD provides each student with a free email account that is to be used in all communication with university personnel. This allows the university to maintain a high degree of confidence in the identity of all individuals corresponding and the security of the transmitted information. Beginning September 1, 2004, the Administration has informed faculty to require any email communications to be through UTD email accounts. To access your UTD email, please go to: http://pipeline.utdallas.edu and login with your UTD NetID and password (same as WebCT login). The Department of Information Resources at UTD provides a method for students to forward email from other accounts to their UTD address and have their UTD mail sent to other accounts. Students may go to the following URL to establish the email forwarding if necessary: http://netid.utdallas.edu. For any assistance with UTD email account, call 972-883-2911 or email email@example.com.
MeetingPlace TeleConference System: UTD maintains a telephone conferencing system from Latitude Communications. Online instructors can use the system for class teleconference sessions during the semester. Participants can access a meeting by dialing a “972” area code number using any touch tone phone and entering a meeting code. If any teleconference is scheduled for the course, students will be posted for times and access instructions. A class teleconference is usually recorded and can be reviewed over the phone after the conference. Please see TeleConference Guide for general conference participation and review instructions. While different online programs in the School of Management make regular use of the system for class discussions, conferencing is also available for smaller groups of students for group discussions or group assignment preparations. If a group wants to reserve a time slot during the workweek of Monday through Friday, please send an email one week in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org with course name, student names and email addresses, choice of date, and start and end times. Once a reservation has been made, students will receive a confirmation and participation instructions.

You can check your grades by accessing “My Grades” icon on Student Tools page after the grade for each assessment task is released. In addition to this, if the grade is for an assignment, detail on your grade will be given in the assignments area. In this course, there will not be a grade for participation per se. However, I expect that you read all discussion postings, all course notes, listen to all PowerPoint presentations or the audio tapings, and actively engage yourself in this course, such as posting
responses to discussion postings, such as the module postings and posting any questions that you may have that are general in nature. Your active participation will have a direct impact on your success in this course. You will be tested on the knowledge you are gaining from the textbook and all methods of learning in webCT. I hope that you enjoy the flexibility that this on-line course will give you to somewhat selfpace yourself, but with this in mind, you need to have discipline to stay up with course work and what is expected. I look forward to getting to know you better. Please let me know any comments or questions you have. Your positive approach to this course, as to life in general, will enable you to get the most out of the course. I hope you have a great semester! Posting of Introduction You must post your introduction in discussions by the due date and time. This is worth up to10 points, assuming you completely answer all required questions. You will receive –5 points for one day to one week late or -10 points (grade of 0) if later than one week. Participation In this course, there will be an element of your grade for participation. There are 3 exams in the course and 3 parts for participation. Participation points will be on the material covered on each exam and/or the team project, you must have at least 2 value added discussion postings regarding the material – your observations, questions, responses to other student’s questions, responses to my postings of questions, etc. These cannot be posted on the same day. These postings must be done in the MODULE POSTINGS or TEAM PROJECT areas of discussions for the time frames before each of the exams. These must be posted during the time frames specified on the syllabus. The grading for this will be up to 5 points for each value added posting up to 10 points for each part as follows: Part 1: 10 Part 2: 10 Part 3: 10 Team Project / Group Work Groups will be assigned at the beginning of the semester, but you will have the opportunity to inform me of your preferences for team members based on Introductions provided. Please see the Groups icon for groups lists. Each group can also use the group area for file exchanges within the group. Please click the WebCT Help menu on how to use the features of the group tool. A private discussion forum will be set up on Discussions board for each group for group communications. There will be a team project. There will be one (1) graded interim submission and the final project paper due towards the end of the semester. Emphasis will be on case study of an accounting information system and applying concepts and information learned in class to analyze and make design recommendations on an existing accounting information system. A Team Project Case Study Outline is provided (Appendix A of Syllabus). Teams that do not follow the outline because it does not apply to them or they want to do something different must get approval from the instructor BEFORE the interim submission and/or Final Team Project is turned in. Please refer to the Team Project Case Study Outline for more details and read it thoroughly several times.
You will have the option to use webCT chat and teleconferencing for team meetings. If you want to set up a teleconference, please send your request to GMBASupport@utdallas.edu with the number of students, the date and time requested, and the course you are enrolled in. You need to send your request from your utdallas.edu e-mail account. I will be happy to attend a webCT chat or teleconference (actually I recommend it, at least once so I can see how the team is doing and address any questions) if you prearrange the time with me. Teaming Evaluation Form The thing to remember is: 0 (zero) is a good score on this and means that you put forth a full effort! Each individual must turn in a Teaming Evaluation Form when the Final Team Project is turned in through webCT assignment functionality. Details on the Teaming Evaluation Form can be found in Appendix A of the Syllabus. The form MUST be completed on you and all your team members and should include effort on ALL group work. This form MUST be typed and you must provide responses to all required information or points will be deducted from your Teaming Evaluation Form score. Your individual grade will be adjusted up or down based on teaming evaluation forms completed on you and the instructor’s evaluation of your effort. All points (either + or -) will be included in the Teaming Evaluation Points. A 0 is a good score for Teaming Evaluation as that means you put forth a full effort and will receive full project points. Tests Your exams (Test #1, Test #2, Test #3) will be timed, on-line exams. The on-line tests are open book and open notes, but I recommend you prepare for them like they were closed book and closed notes because they are timed exams and cover a great deal of material. You can access online tests by clicking the Quizzes/Tests icon and then clicking the available online test title links. Each on-line test is timed and can only be accessed once within the scheduled time window. Please read the on-screen instructions carefully before you click the Begin Test button. After each test is graded and released for reviewing, you may go back to the tests page and click the “View scores” button of the test to review your test results and any feedback from the instructor. Self-Quizzes There will be several optional quizzes available for you to take. These are not graded. However, they must be taken by the due dates provided and will close up on the due date. These are good to take as there are some questions from the quizzes that you may see on the exams.
The University has policies and discipline procedures regarding scholastic dishonesty. Detailed information is available on Scholastic Dishonesty web page. All students are expected to maintain a high level of responsibility with respect to academic honesty. Students who violate University rules on scholastic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the course and/or dismissal from the University. Since such dishonesty harms the individual, all students and the integrity of the University, policies on scholastic dishonesty will be strictly enforced.
All students in the class are expected to behave in accordance with academic integrity. Strict adherence to the Policy on Cheating as stated in the Regent’s Rules and Regulations, Part One, Chapter VI, Section 3, Subsection 3.2, subdivision 3.22 is expected. This policy reads: Students are expected to be above reproach in all scholastic activities. Students who engage in scholastic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the course and dismissal from the university. Scholastic dishonesty includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or attempt to commit such acts. Since this is an on-line course, academic dishonesty includes plagiarism which also includes any instance of having another person complete work on your behalf whether this is tests, quizzes, or project related work. Academic dishonesty of any type, will NOT be tolerated in this class. All instances of academic dishonesty (as noted above) will be referred to the Dean of Students. To give you an idea of how this works, plagiarized materials turned in will be sent to the Dean of Students Office with a minimum recommendation of negative points, a grade of 0 on the assignment, or an F in the course. The Dean may also assess other disciplinary penalties, which could include being suspended or expelled from school. I use www.turnitin.com to evaluate plagiarism in submitted papers and refer all cases of potential plagiarism to the Dean of Students. The MLA Format must be used for all papers. PLEASE NOTE THAT IN MOST CIRCUMSTANCES OF PROVEN ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, THE BEST OVERAL L SEMESTER GRADE YOU CAN MAKE FOR THIS COURSE WOULD BE A C.
As required by UTD academic regulations, every student needs to do an evaluation for each enrolled course at the end of the semester. An online instructional assessment form will be made available for your confidential use. Please look for the course evaluation link on the course Homepage towards the finishing of the course. Your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

APPENDIX A AIM 6343 – Team Project Case Study Outline
For the Finalize Team Names, Team Company and Team Project topic: You need to turn in your team name, the company you want to review, and the project focus. You must submit all the detail I need by the date in the TOPICS AND SCHEDULE part of the syllabus or you can get up to –10 points on the project. Think about companies that you work with and a key business process that feeds the accounting information system (AIS) such as (sales / collection (order to cash), acquisition / payment (purchase to pay), human resources (hire to paycheck), or conversion (such as the production of finished goods) or an accounting process such as consolidations, month-end or year-end closing, cost accounting, etc. Using any company of your choice – either one that uses SAP R/3 or some other enterprise system (such as Oracle, PeopleSoft or Baan) or one that could possibly benefit from an enterprise resource planning / enterprise system, e-Business concepts, and/or additional focus on internal control. Complete the following: • Sections in blue must be turned in for the Team Submission #1 for a grade and all sections can be turned in with Team Submission #1 for “freebie” feedback (and also to give you a leg up on the end of semester “crunch”). • All sections must be turned in for Team Submission #2 including all modifications recommended from Team Submission #1. 1. PLANNING STAGE (30 points total) - Give a brief history of the company (you are completing this case on) include the following: a. History (5 points) b. Current key business processes and accounting transactions (5 points) c. Explain all the systems that the company uses in conjunction with the accounting information system (feeds to the accounting system) and how these systems are used for decision-making and how they support the business processes. (5 points) d. List and prioritize all information systems needs – criticality of systems that need to be improved (3 points). e. Explain pervasive internal control (Using the COSO framework) explain internal control at the company level. Explain it as it relates to the 5 components of control and explain the key pe rvasive controls. (Consult Chapter 7 and Document posted on COSO Components of Control ) (5 points) f. Explain the pervasive internal control from an IT perspective. Can use the COBiT framework. How is the IT organization structured, etc. at the company level. Give sufficient detail for your analysis (Consult Chapter 8) (5 points)
g. Give your overall company assessment of internal control at a high level. (2 points) 2. ANALYSIS STAGE (70 points for parts for TS #1) - Select one key business process that feeds accounting or a key accounting process (such as monthend close, consolidations, cost center accounting processes) that has a priority information systems need in the company and complete the following: a. Reiterate briefly why this business process has a priority. (2 points) b. Talk about the business process (i.e., provide a narrative). Give the detailed accounting transactions that occur in this business process along with the account coding / chart of accounts coding related to these entries (Consult Chapte r 16 on G/L and chart of account coding and applicable chapter(s) from 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and/or 15) – CRITICAL FOR THIS SECTION – The team members who do not work for this organization should compile interview questions as a team and interview the student who does work for the company in focus and write up the narrative and have the student who does work for the company review the narrative for accuracy. If one of the team members is going to be interviewing someone else in their organization or another organization, the interview questions should be compiled as a team (using the Team Project Case Study Outline as a guideline for what TO have in the interview question outline). ALL team members must read and understand the narrative and MUST participate in this part as it drives much of the paper! – this is a good section to try to do first, once the team project company and topic are determined. I can review the interview questions ahead of time if you would like. Doing this section in this manner should help prevent the individual who works for the company doing ALL the work. (28 points) c. Complete a Business Model (REA model) of the process. Make sure to include the entity attributes and key attribute (primary key) (Consult Chapter 6 in the textbook) (20 points) d. Flowchart the process and use other methods from this chapter to document the specific business process (Consult Chapter 4 of the textbook). (20 points) e. Complete a Control Matrix of the process to be used in conjunction with the flowchart created (Consult chapter 9 in the textbook and Document – Business Process Controls in the Course Materials Section). Explain the present and missing controls in detail. Have an annotated version of the flowchart to show where the controls exist as related to the flowchart (30 points) f. Explain any systems or control weaknesses currently in the business process under evaluation. This will include any higher level controls that are not designated on the flowchart and can recap the concerns from the control matrix. (5 points) g. Assess what information systems (business process and accounting information systems) are being used and what processes methods are
being used (Ch. 3) (ERP, enterprise systems, e-Business applications, general ledger and chart of account coding, financial and business reporting, etc) and how they support the process and/or could be improved. Discuss the flow to accounting information systems from this business process (the accounting impact of this process). How is information compiled, distributed, and used throughout the company both internally and externally. (Consult Chapters, 2, 3, 16, and others as needed). (10 points) DESIGN STAGE - Determine alternative systems that could assist this company. Evaluate the alternatives and make your recommendations with a focus on the topics of ERP, e-business, and G/L and business reporting and how these could benefit the company. Have some detail in the analysis: determine the systems requirements, pros and cons of each alternative, costs, etc. (30 points) Present your recommendations to management. (5 points) IMPLEMENTATION AND OPERATION STAGE - Assume that management agrees to implement your recommendation(s) for this particular business process. (10 points) a. IMPLEMENTATION - Give an implementation schedule (what should occur and the timing). (Refer to discussion on Systems Development Lifecycle and particularly the step “I” on PADIO). b. OPERATION - Give what you feel would be the companies’ assessment of the new business process 1 year after impleme ntation. (Refer to discussion on Systems Development Lifecycle) Make sure everyone on the entire team reads through the entire document to make sure all parts of the project are completed and the project flows well. (can lose significant points up to -50 points on each submission if the parts do not flow together). Have a professional work product with a Table of Contents. Since this is an electronic submission, hyperlinks to the specific sections of the paper is recommended (if you know how), but is not required. (5 points) You must have a bibliography. Bibliography and footnoting is mandatory. In lieu of footing, you can use parenthetical references. Please follow the MLA standard. I recommend getting the MLA Handbook or doing research to ensure compliance to this. Cite all works properly. www.Turnitin.com is used for all submitted materials for plagiarism purposes. Consult the plagiarism document on the webCT site. If you have questions on what is proper, ask me! (can receive up to -100 points on each submission due to improper use of having a bibliography AND footnoting or parenthetical references) You must have at least 5 outside sources (other than the textbook) for the paper. (5 points)
If researching SAP R/3, you can use the following resources: www.sap.com http://help.sap.com
NOTE: If your team would like to do a slightly different project, please write up a Case Study similar to this one for my review and approval. Or for a minor change, for example, instead of doing a business process, one team did the month-end accounting close process for an organization because they were experiencing significant problems with that you can e-mail me with the suggested project modification. Have fun with the subject matter and be creative – with analyzing systems and processes, it is essential to be creative in order to facilitate valuable changes and not just “pave the cow paths”. The below teaming evaluation form must be completed and submitted by the due date and time as specified in the Syllabus (the same form will be attached in the Assignments area of the course). In addition to losing points for late submission, points could be de ducted for less than team effort or additional points could be given for above and beyond effort. Late submission points for late team project work and/or teaming evaluations will be deducted as follows: Late by one day = -10 points Late by two days = -20 points Late by three days = -30 points Late by four or more days = -40 points
TEAMING EVALUATION FORM
This part of the team project is confidential. Explain the SPECIFIC work each person did and consider contribution, quality, effort, time, flexibility, leadership, results, timely completion, knowledge, experience, creativity, initiative, concern for team, delivering a quality product that flows well and is professional. I will be looking at the scores from each team member to get an idea of the effort each person put towards the project. If the scores for an individual are consistently low, this could amount to points being deducted or a failing grade on the Team Project and other teamwork. Form MUST be typed and submitted through webCT assignments. My Name Team Name (List Team Members in alphabetical order of last names, including yourself). Score each person as follows: Above and beyond – A+ - went above and beyond in some way and deserves a score higher than the majority of the team (explain why they deserve above and beyond status) Full contributor – A - should get all the team points because they gave a fair effort (explain why they are a full contributor) Less than full - If less than a full contributor, say whether they gave a B, C, D or F effort and you give support for why you scored them there - why they were not a full contributor. Team Member’s Name Team Member #1 Team Member #2 Team Member #3 Team Member #4 Team Member #5 Explain the SPECIFIC work (i.e. sections of the paper) that each person did on the project and the strengths of each team member, INCLUDING you. Score of Team Member
