DESCRIPTOR
This unit of study investigates the use of integrated computer-based information systems, commonly referred to as Enterprise Resource Planning systems, designed to support a large organisation's information needs. This unit considers issues associated with the analysis, design and implementation of such systems and investigates how such systems implement transaction processing, management information systems and executive information systems across an organisation's various business processes.

.
LEARNING OUTCOMES
On successful completion of this unit of study, students should be able to: 1. Develop an appreciation of the impact of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems on businesses. 2. Understand the issues involved in the design, implementation and maintenance of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems 3. Develop practical skills in the use of SAP R/3 as an example of an Enterprise Resource Planning System

LEARNING IN THE WORK PLACE
20% of the assessment in this Unit of Study will relate to learning in the workplace. Learning in the workplace activities that will be included in this Unit of Study are: 1. Workshops based on a simulated business scenario.

2. Practical Case Study

TEACHING & LEARNING STRATEGIES
This is a unit of study where learners are responsible for managing their own time in completing prescribed reading, undertaking further research and completing assessment tasks. Students are expected to participate in practical problem solving sessions, usually through team work, in class, and through case study analysis. Students are supported through regular in-class contact, such as lectures, tutorials and workshops and are expected to participate in online learning activities, peer discussion and review, and self-reflection. For every classroom-based contact hour it is expected that students will undertake another two hours of self-directed work. This Unit of Study will be delivered as.1.5 hours lecture and 1.5 hours tutorial per week. It is expected that you will spend at least ten hours per week studying this Unit of Study (including lecture and tutorial time). This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and group work. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for tests, the workload may be greater.

GRADUATE CAPABILITIES
Victoria University’s Graduate Capabilities are generic skills that all students should possess at graduation. These skills are in addition to the specific knowledge and skills associated with the discipline area of students’ degrees. Graduate Capabilities are divided into five levels (for undergraduates) and will be achieved progressively with increasing levels of sophistication. A full description of the Graduate Capabilities can be found in the VU Graduate Capabilities policy. This unit of study contributes to development of these Graduate Capabilities in a number of ways, with emphasis on problem solving and critical evaluation of information for career ready graduates. Table 1 offers examples of how the teaching and learning activity(ies) in this unit and the assessment tasks correspond to each Graduate Capability.
