All details in this unit profile for COIS12073 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).

Overview

Enterprise Systems (ES) have become increasingly popular since the early 1990s. One goal of these systems is to provide an encapsulation of core business processes and information. Many organisations have acquired ES technology, however there are considerable risks associated with ES implementation, maintenance and on-going use. This unit aims to equip students with the information required to inform ES adoption, selection and implementation decisions and the ability to communicate this knowledge to their peers and employers.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
There were some areas within the assessment tasks that were quite difficult at times to find journal articles/information on. Course/Teaching evaluation For future assessments, the topic and areas in relation to the topic should be chosen carefully so that there is a substantial amount of information to it, making it easier for the students to write and find good journal articles to back up their point.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Describe Enterprise Systems (ES) and be able to explain how and why they evolved.
  2. Evaluate the role of ES in organisations and their adoption and use characteristics.
  3. Discriminate between the common ES modules and their features.
  4. Analyse the individual activities and the roles of key stakeholders in an organisation's ES life-cycle.
  5. Develop an argument for the support or rejection of an ES adoption decision in an organisation.
  6. Examine the role of business process remodelling during ES adoption and implementation.
  7. Assess risk factors, relevant critical success factors and best practice in an ES adoption and implementation project.
