ERPsim Lab

The ERPsim Game is an innovative “learning-by-doing” approach to teaching the integrated management of main business processes. ERPsim is a business simulation game for SAP in which participants use a real ERP system to manage their virtual company in a competitive market. Win or lose, participants will improve their knowledge of business processes and their understanding of how ERP systems are effective at managing those processes. Using a continuous-time simulation, students are put in a situation in which they have to run their business with a real-life ERP (SAP S/4HANA) system. Teams of up to five students operate a firm in a make-to-stock manufacturing supply chain and must interact with suppliers and customers by sending and receiving orders, delivering their products and completing the whole cash-to-cash cycle. A simulation program (ERPsim) was developed to automate (i) the sales process, so that every firm receives a large number of orders in each period of the simulation, (ii) part of the production process in order to account for production capacity, and (iii) part of the procurement process to account for delay in delivery and payment. Using standard and customized reports in SAP, students must analyze their transactional data to make business decisions and ensure the profitability of their operations. See how ERPsim is changing the way we teach and learn ERP concepts.
