CIS 115 Assignment 1,2,3

Assignment Information and Grading Rubric

 

Much of the data used in this textbook are based on GBI and represent the many aspects of its ?ctional suppliers, customers, employees, and materials. In addition, all of the hands-on exercises are intended to be completed in a functioning (live) SAP ERP system that is con?gured with GBI data. (Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP, systems integrate a company’s various functional and cross-functional business processes. ERP systems are explained in greater detail in Chapter 2. It is very important that the students quickly become familiar with GBI and its business operations in order to master the key concepts in this course and to complete the course assignments.

 

Refer to page 15 of the textbook for a brief overview of GBI. Note that you must retrieve the detailed GBI Annual Report from the WileyPLUS course site (explained later) or the SAP University Alliances Community (SAP UAC) at http://uac.sap.com to learn the full story of how GBI came into existence and to familiarize yourself with the speci?cs of the company’s operations. The SAP UAC is a free site for all university students who are enrolled in an SAP

course. The registration process is very simple and is free. In addition to the detailed GBI information on the SAP UAC site, you will also gain access to several SAP career services, including certi?cation information and internship and job opportunities.
