A Word document (.doc or .docx) is preferred but a refined text file format (.rtf) is also acceptable. A second file containing only the SAP Exercise 2 answers.

Instructions for submission: Submit the FINAL version of file containing the Case Study Evaluation Report, SAP Reflective Essay and Journal Entries to Turnitin for review as instructed on the course Study Desk.

Even if it is below ten percent but there is a significant match with the work of another student, some revision is advisable. You should not submit your Turnitin report as we are able to access them in Turnitin. Submit your assignment file and your SAP exercise file electronically via EASE by the due date. The EASE link will be available on the CIS3009 StudyDesk. If you experience issues with the submission process please: Check and ensure that the size of each file is less than 5MB and that it is either a .doc, .docx, .rft or .pdf file type (as per instructions above), then attempt to submit again, If you continue to have problems submitting, contact AskUSQ for technical assistance, If no technical causes are identified and you continue to have problems submitting, send me an email with your name, student number and details of the problem you are experiencing and I will advise you what to do next. Please DO NOT send your assignment files via email. SECTION A: CASE STUDY (35 marks) In-text citation and references (or sources) are required using the Harvard referencing style This section is based on the following case study which can be accessed viathe CIS3009 StudyDesk Course readings - DiReCt link (in the upper left-hand column). Brown, V & Vessey, I 2001, 'Nibco's "Big Bang"', Communications of the Association for Information Systems, vol. 5, no. 1, pp. 1-42. As an external consultant, you have been hired by NIBCO to conduct an analysis of the effectiveness of the processes NIBCO undertook in choosing SAP as its ERP system and to present your analysis in the case study format to NIBCO’s Leadership Triad addressed to Mr. S. Beutler. Your tasks: Read the complete case study to ensure you fully understand the SAP implementation and its outcomes. Focus on the Case Study sections VIII-XV, pp. 20-39 and use your knowledge of the Motiwalla & Thompson textbook, chapters 5-9 inclusive and at least 6 academically sound external sources, to develop your report. As the case study highlights many issues, too many to be addressed in this assignment, you are required to restrict your analysis to following topics: The implementation strategy adopted, Implementation organization and approaches used, Preparation for ‘go-live’ readiness, Provision of training, and Management of the stabilization period. Your report should end with an evaluation of the overall effectiveness of the Implementation Process (in relation to the above topics only), and a ‘lessons learned’ section to inform any future ERP purchase process. Length: 2500-3000 words. SECTION B (15 marks) - SAP Practical Exercise 2, Journal and Reflective Essay In-text citation and references (or sources) are required for the reflective essay using the Harvard referencing style SAP Exercise 2, Journal and Reflective Essay. Complete the SAP exercise as directed in tutorials 7-9 and record the outputs in a word or refined text file. Continue to keep a journal of your activities and experience of using SAP. Include a copy of your full journal as an appendix to the reflective essay. Reflective Essay: Using your journal written as you completed both SAP exercises, write an essay of between 800 and 1200 words reflecting your end user experiences of the SAP software. To assist you in your reflection, you must: Identify five appropriate end user criteria with which to evaluate the SAP software. The five criteria should be based upon the course readings and your research of suitable academic and highly regarded industry papers. That is, this essay should be based on your journals but should also draw upon the theoretical knowledge you have gained during the semester. In the allocation of marks, your inputs in the SAP GBI database (as shown in a SAP report of your activity by User ID), your submitted journal and SAP exercise outputs will be taken into account. Please note, no marks will be given for this section if the SAP report generated does not produce a record of any activity by your User ID)

In the presented analysis, the outcomes and effectiveness of the implementation process undertaken at NIBCO INC. while employing SAP R/3 as its Enterprise Resource Planning System id done. NIBCO Inc. is a mid-sized manufacturer of valves and pipe fittings with its headquarters at Elkhart, Indiana in the U.S.. SAP is a Germany based Multi-National Software developing company that deals in making enterprise softwares for the management of business operations and customer relations. NIBCO was planning to implement a change in the technological framework by replacing the existing legacy systems with a common, consolidated and centralized integrated system for several functions like finance, materials management, production and sales/distribution (Michelle. 2013). NIBCO consulted the Boston Consultancy Group (BCG) in August 1995 to help the firm in developing the strategic information systems plan to meet the new business objectives. BCG recommended the already successful SAP R/3 to NIBCO for their operations.

NIBCO’s planned a Big Bang Approach for the implementation of the SAP R/3 system that employed the launch of the system at all ten plants and the four new North American distribution centres at the same time. This approach was opposed by majority of the consultants.
