1.Introduction to the Module and Module Objective With the increasing need for information fluidity across enterprises, the need for systems which are able to connect all functions of the organizations is becoming paramount. Traditionally IT played the role of a support service and was limited to management reporting. However, now technology and its proliferation have resulting in IT moving to a more strategic role. Most of the leading organizations today understand that their success depends on how effectively they manage information across the entire enterprise. ERP is an integrated packaged software solution covering business processes and functions of diverse industry needs and refer to large programs which help manage enterprise wide business processes, using a common database and shared management reporting tools. Once configured, ERP allows information to be entered at a single point in the process, and also updates a single, shared database for all functions that directly or indirectly depend on this information. These systems are therefore complex and extensive. For an organization, ERP systems represent a significant business investment. Unless deployed and used effectively, ERP can be a drain on resources rather than resulting in efficiency and competitive advantage. In order to leverage value from ERP systems, it is extremely important for all future managers to understand all functional and managerial aspects of ERP systems. This module facilitates students to understand what an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is and how it can be used in an organization. The module delves on the evolution, implementation, and advantages of ERP, providing a comprehensive coverage of the ERP market as well as the different ERP modules. It aims to provide an overview of the major players Vendors, Users, Consultants, of the ERP market. Current trends and decision making issues are addressed through a cross-functional view of ERP. Using SAP, the market leader amongst all ERP packages, the module aims to impart an understanding of how the fundamental business processes interact with SAP ERP in functional areas such as Sales and Distribution, Material Management, Production Planning, Financial Accounting, Controlling and Human Capital Management.

3. Module Pre-requisites The approach to teaching and learning starts from the position that you know very little about Enterprise Resource Planning systems and that you need to be introduced to the basic concepts about Enterprise systems and their potential. However the module assumes that you are conversant with concepts and issues generic to Information Systems.

110803-IT-502-V2 6.Session Plans 6.1-Session 1 ERP AND ORGANIZATIONS This session will introduce the students to the role of ERP in organizations. ERP systems play a vital role in integrating the functional silos of an organization. They help an organization improve its efficiency and productivity. While on one hand ERP systems bring advantages to an organization, they also have some limitations and challenges. Learning Outcome At the end of the session, students will be able to understand the benefits and limitations of ERP systems. They will also be able to understand the impact of ERP systems on organizational structure; know what is system integration and understand the role of ERP systems in systems integration.

6.2-Session 2 ERP Life Cycle ERP projects need to be managed carefully. The life cycle for any information system consists of pre-implementation, implementation and postimplementation activities. In case of ERP systems, due to their inherent complexity, these activities need careful execution and monitoring.

Learning Outcome The students will be able to get an overview of the implementation ERP life-cycle ie pre-implementation, implementation and post implementation activities associated with ERP. The student will be able to understand the role of the consultant, vendors, and the people in at various stages of the ERP life-cycle.

6.3-Session 3 ERP Systems Architecture ERP systems have evolved from mainframe based architecture to client server architecture and are finally moving towards distributed component architecture. ERP systems can be implemented as Two-tier, Three-Tier, Web-based Architecture or Service Oriented Architecture. It is important for a manager to be able to do a comparative analysis of the various architectures as the architecture affects the implementation strategy and costs. Learning Outcome The students will be able to understand the various types of ERP architectures and the related benefits and drawbacks of each. They will also be able to understand SOA and its impact on ERP. Using the case Nestles ERP Implementation the students will be able to look at a real world decision on ERP implementation

6.4-Session 4 ERP Implementation Strategies & Governance ERP implementation is a project of several months and like any other project, the success depends on how effectively the project is managed. Project management of ERP systems requires strategies for managing Scope Creep and managing ERP resources Hardware, software and people resources. The Implementation methodologies are dependent on factors such as use of Third Party Products, database requirements, ERP governance and platform issues. ERP Governance outlines and defines committees and workgroups that are responsible for the different components of the implementation.

Learning Outcome By the end of this session the students will be able to understand scope creep and how it can be managed. Students will understand why third party products are needed, and will be able to compare different implementation strategies

110803-IT-502-V2 such as different implementation methodologies ie vanilla vs chocolate and their impact on the organization.

The student will also understand the roles and responsibilities of the Owner, Project Executive, Steering Committee, Application Steward and Project Management Office. Required Readings Motivalla &Thompson Chapter 5 ( pg 134-149)

6.5-Session 5 Organizational Change and Business Process Re-engineering ERP implementations bring about changes in the organizational structure, processes and work culture. Change management strategies are required for effective deployment. Studies have shown that causes of ERP failure in most cases can be attributed to people related issues. Moreover, ERP implementations result in change in business processes which vary from incremental improvement to radical de-redesign. Learning Outcome Students will be able to understand how ERP systems lead to BPR. They will be able to identify the role of Change Management and develop change management strategies.

6.10-Sessions 10 Case Study Sales and Distribution This case study explains an integrated sales and distribution process in detail and thus fosters a thorough understanding of each process step and underlying SAP functionality. The data entry requirements in the sales & distribution exercises ( done in session 9) were minimized because much of the data was stored in the SAP system. This stored data, known as master data, simplifies the processing of business transactions. In the sales order process, we used master data for customers, materials (the products we sold) and pricing to simplify the sales order process. These sessions would involve creating a new master data, carrying out transactions and studying the document trail.
