In the past few years there’s an escalating globalization in the world, therefore most of the companies have to face so complex problems in the geographic and IT area, which independent systems cannot handle anymore. This is the main reason why more and more small and medium-sized enterprises want to introduce an ERP system to their businesses.
To use such a system with high efficiency, not only the deploying professionals are needed, who calibrate the software and hardware, but the employees have to have adequate and applicable knowledge with ERP systems.
My thesis’s goal is to create an exercise course. Whit the completion of the course anybody can get a comprehensive view on the SAP system functionality, structure and modules, even without previous experience with them. To achieve this goal, first of all I got knowledge of the entire SAP system. After that I developed and configured the processes for the course, in some cases I had to retool system parameters. I also wrote summaries for each exercise for easier understanding. Then I developed scripts in ABAP, which can automatically verify the right execution of the tasks in a user friendly way, the participants can check their progress with these scripts. In the last part of my thesis I make suggestions for the curriculum breakdown and each lesson’s subject matter.
