SAP University Alliances Learning Room - Overview In the Learning Room you will have access to teaching content. Also, in the lower section of the page, you will be able to view and join in on discussions on the different materials that are available.
Curriculum Programs Curriculum programs are centered around the areas that you may want to teach. In each section there are collections of content for that specific topic area.
Enterprise Management In the Enterprise Management area, curriculum is divided by delivery method. The UA material is designed for the classroom. GBI is the UA data set that most instructors use, and what we will cover in this course. There are two main courses listed, Introduction and Configuration.

UA_IntroERP_GBI_EN_LTR_3.1.zip The downloads may be a single file or a collection of files. For the Introduction to ERP using GBI 3.1, the materials are separated into working files. Notice the different modules. You may not want to use all of the modules, so the materials are designed as stand-alone, you can use whichever module you like in which ever order you like. I recommend using chapters 1 – 3 to start any course you are teaching.
03_Case_Study 04 SD This come is both Word and PDF formats. There are Notes, Data Sheets and the Case Study for each chapter. Looking into Chapter 4, Sales and Distribution, you can see there are 3 files. The Slides file will contain the presentation materials in both Power Point and PDF format. The Exercises are shorter versions that don’t take as much time to complete. The Case Study is more in-depth material on the topic.

ERP-SIM • ERPsim games are an innovative “learning-by-doing” approach to teaching ERP concepts. Using a continuous-time simulation, students are put in a situation in which they have to run their business with a real-life ERP (mySAP ECC 6.0) system. Teams of four students are tasked with operating a company; be it a bottled water distributor, a • make-to-stock cereal manufacturer, or a Dairy company depending on the version, and must interact with suppliers and customers by sending and receiving orders, delivering their products and completing the whole cash-to-cash cycle.
