CIS 601 - Enterprise Computing and Systems Integration

  • 3 credits

This course serves as an introduction to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. The class examines an enterprise's business processes and challenges students to examine, analyze, and execute business processes using the SAP ERP simulation. The content is reinforced by the use of the SAP ERP simulation to support both strategic decisions and the day-to-day operations of a business through introductory, extended, and advanced versions of the simulation. 

This course is synchronous and team-centric in that students will operate in teams to manage the business using the SAP ERP simulation and class sessions will be scheduled at a particular day and time due to the nature of the SAP ERP simulations. Contribution by each team member to the preparation and execution of the simulations and team assignments is expected. For example, teams will be required to collectively collaborate and produce two reflection papers describing their experiences during the various simulations.  Further, most of the grading for this course is based on team assignments.

In addition, we will also examine the impact of ERP on the organization's processes and the effects on the organizational due to changes resulting from ERP implementations.

This course does not require a textbook.


Admission to the MACC or MCIS program; Must be enrolled in one of the following Levels: Graduate (GR) OR Professional (PR); Credit not allowed for both CIS 601 and MGT 601.
