Introduction to ERPsim (SAP S/4 HANA)

 

Karl-David Boutin and Forough Karimi-Alaghehband, HEC Montréal

 

CONFIRMED

ERPsim is the perfect introduction to SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA, with the aim of making the learning of ERP and business management concepts more effective.

 

ERPsim is a business simulation where learners get to use a real SAP S/4HANA system to evaluate, input and see the result of their decisions. This approach makes use of actual transactions provided by SAP as well as custom transactions, which provides a mix that is very close to what an ERP user would experience in the workplace.

 

In this boot camp, you will:

  • Be introduced to ERPsim, the various simulations, and the business processes that are supported by it;
  • Learn how to run the simulated business using SAP S/4HANA and SAP Fiori;
  • Efficiently prepare and run a simulation;
  • Discuss how the simulations can be adapted into your curricula.

 

This workshop provides you all the necessary knowledge to run an ERPsim game in a classroom setting. By completing the certification, you will be granted an ERPsim Certification ID (simCID), which is required to use ERPsim.
