This ERP project gives you an opportunity to try SAP, considered to be the industry leader in ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems. You will follow 2 tutorials on SAP from the end of Chapter 7 and 8 of the Kroenke Chapters while answering some questions.
I have posted a SAP Supplement document things to look out for. Follow the directions the 1st time logging in. The project works best in Internet explorer and you may need to use compatibility mode! I suggest reading through this document and the questions document below completely before starting the actual project. SAP-Project-Supplement_Lavin_Summer_2015
As an alternative to the web version, you could download the SAP GUI to your PC. Keep in mind there is no technical support to assist with this. Download: SAP GUI You can also use the computer labs in Alter Hall 602 or 603. The advantage to downloading the GUI or working in Alter is that the application is more exact to the simulation.
Each student has their own login to the SAP system. You can get your username and password for the assignment on your Gradebook. Remember you must be logged in to the community site to see your grades/SAP Login.
NOTE*** Internet Explorer (IE) works best for the SAP Project. Please use the Compatibility Mode on IE to make it work. The Compatibility Mode is found under Tools in the IE menu.
