Case Study 1 WMG MSc - EIS ENTERPRISE INFORMATION SYSTEMS CASE STUDY INTRODUCTION This case study puts you, the syndicate group, in the position of a consultant making proposals for the definition and implementation of a total integrated EIS for an organisation. You will be given the name of an organisation to use as your prospective customer. Note:You should also communicate with others in the supply chain to ensure suitable links over the enterprise-wide supply chain. We shall be using the implementation methodology published by one of the leading ERP software vendors, Infor (). We shall also be looking at the capabilities offered by their software products, along with those of one or two other companies. At the end of the module each team will be expected to deliver a presentation explaining their proposals for introducing a company-wide integrated system. MODULE STRUCTURE The module is structured overall so as to simulate an actual systems project. The sequence of the session topics is that which you would encounter in working step-by-step through a systems integration programme. Each topic is discussed in a lecture which is then followed by a case-study exercise focussed on that topic. During the course of the module each exercise builds upon the previous one and the material generated by the exercises thereby leads to the final group presentation. You are welcome to ask questions during the lectures about how the ideas being discussed might apply to your case study. During all the syndicate sessions the module tutor will be available to act as a “consultant” to assist you with the exercise.

Case Study 2 WMG MSc - EIS TEAM WORKING During the case study there are a wide variety of activities to be undertaken and in some cases it may be necessary to split the work and delegate certain tasks to individual team members. It is therefore recommended that each team appoint a Project Leaderto act as chairman of the group. In addition, each exercise generates a “deliverable “, i.e. some kind of information on paper, flip-chart, white board or computer file, which will be an essential ingredient of the module-end presentation. There is a danger that some of this information might get lost if not carefully catalogued and protected. It cannot be assumed that any material left in the lecture room or syndicate rooms overnight will still be there the next day. To avoid such loss it is further recommended that each group appoint a Project Secretaryto keep a record of all material generated and ensure that it’s whereabouts is known. TEAM PRESENTATION Each team will be required to give an end-of-module PowerPoint presentation of 20-25 minutes duration. This will be your “presentation to the board” of your target company. The aim is to help the board understand the potential business benefits of introducing an integrated system across the company but also the challenges to be faced in doing so. It should help the board members to make an informed judgement about the best way forward.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
