Sept 2020 UPDATE is here



The ERPSim game is played by teams over several rounds (up to 8 rounds of 30 virtual days each). They sell up to six products at a time from a possible 12 products that the market consumes. The products are all muesli cereal2 in various flavors and box sizes. The teams must forecast demand, run MRP, procure, produce, price and market their products for sale.


Figure 1 shows the entire cash to cash cycle in the game. The transactions in bold are decision points that teams must make and execute. They are considered strategic in nature. The transactions that are gray are considered operational in nature. They are automated by the simulator. Additionally, teams can run analytical reports at various points in the game to monitor and strategize.

Data from an actual game have been extracted from SAP ERP and stored in an Access database. Then queries have been written to report important findings. The results have been exported to Excel.
You will use Tableau to acquire ERPSim data and visualize to discover any interesting trends.
