IS1 - Enterprise Computing and ERP Systems
90 hp Computer and Systems Sciences with at least:
- 7,5 hp objectoriented analysis and design
- 7,5 hp objectoriented programming
- 7,5 hp database
The course discusses how enterprise information systems support organisations in value chains and supply chains. The course introduces a number of modern enterprise modelling techniques based on linguistic instruments and economic ontologies. It is shown how these techniques support requirements elicitation for enterprise information systems design.
The overall course goal is to create an understanding of analysis, design and use of intra- and inter-organisational enterprise information systems through the use of enterprise modelling.
This understanding means that the student after completing the course shall be able to:
- explain and evaluate central concepts in intra and inter organisational enterprise information systems, especially regarding their functionality, architecture, development, use, and consequences.
- analyse and design goal models describing the goals of an organisation and means used for fulfilling the goals.
- analyse and design business and value models for individual organisations as well as networks of organisations with a focus on production, transformation and exchange of resources.
- analyse and design process models including actors, information, control flow, and resource aspects.
- design and evaluate organisations and their business activities as well as information systems using enterprise modelling.
- summarise, apply and evaluate results in recent scientific literature in the area of the course.
The course discusses how enterprise information systems support organisations in value chains and supply chains. Different architectures for enterprise information systems are discussed and a main distinction is made between ERP systems and EAI solutions. Organisational consequences of different architectures are discussed. The course introduces a number of modern enterprise modeling techniques based on linguistic instruments and economic ontologies. The course goes deeper into goal modeling, business modeling and process modeling. The course shows how enterprise modeling supports requirements elicitation for enterprise information systems design.
