Course objectives
Annotation The structure of the subject is designed so, that the students will be broadly acquainted with themes regarding ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning Systems). Acquired knowledge will be based on different points of view. The key role of ERP as a important tool for managing all enterprise processes will be presented, including architecture of these systems and terminology used in the field. The key processes controlled by ERP systems will be introduced. Additionally, the student will be familiarized with the problems related to the development of these systems, upgrades to new versions and the product life cycle will be discussed with relationship to the Boston Matrix. The situation on the ERP market and solution selling methods will be broadly discussed based on the lecturer’s 18 years of experience in this area. The essential set of knowledge for professionals in this field will be discussed and the working conditions and relationship knowledge and marketing methods will be examined including the competitive advantages for students. The possibilities of acquired knowledge utilization will be examined, including all imaginable requirements from prospective employers. During these lessons we will go through the basic methods used for process control with necessary relationships to ERP tools such as Theory of Constraints, Risk Management, Project Management, Critical chain, Balanced Scorecard, Business Intelligence,Ishikawa Fishbone diagram, Kepner-Tregoe methodology and basic process optimization by use of simplex algorithm. The basics of Little´s law. During the course, the students will be acquainted with a real case studies.

Teaching methods
Lectures and seminars, modelling the typical case studies by using chosen ERP system and related discussions, self study, hands-on ERS systems and use of training materials including e-learning files.
Assessment methods
For standard full-time study the courses will be split into 13 blocs of lectures and every block will be 2 hours. Related seminars will also be split into 13 blocs and every block will be 2 hours. The subject is not provided for combined or other forms of study except for full-time study. Taking into consideration the complex characteristics of the subject the tuition requires, that the course switches often from lectures to hands-on procedures and vice versa, so the attendance is mandatory for lectures and seminars. In every lesson the teacher will require discussion about the subject and will present real case studies from his expertise for a better understanding of usage of managerial methods and tools. Students will be supplied by the latest available demo version of an ERP system and it is expected, that this demo version will be installed on their private computers in order to check acquired skills during self study. The student ability to operate demo version of ERP during seminars will be continuously checked by teacher. The first part of the final exam will consist of a written part, in which the student will prepare a basis for the subsequent oral exam about managerial methods and the second hands on part where the student will present a required example of a daily processes in ERP. The question will be supplied in advance and will be stored on the university server.The manuals and power points presentation related to every provided chapter will be stored on that server as well as written materials, which help to model required processes in ERP system. Any copying, keeping a record of tests or carrying the tests out, using forbidden aids including any communication devices or any other breach of objectivity of the exam is regarded as a failure to meet the obligations of the subject and as a serious breach of study regulations. As a consequence, the teacher grades the student with "F" and the dean is allowed to initiate a disciplinary action, which might lead to the termination of the studies. The questions used for BPH_PIS1 testing is considered as a basics for questions used for Bachelor's final state examination. The acquired knowledge of BPH_PIS1 will be useful for elaboration of Bachelor's thesis.
