Build momentum for digital transformation

ERPsim™ PROPELS YOU ON YOUR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION JOURNEY

It engages your people in a challenge that pits teams against each other to solve problems, motivating them to embrace ERP and buy into your digital transformation initiative.

ERPsim is a business simulation that runs on a live SAP ERP system. In a fast-paced environment, participants must optimize decisions by sharing information and collaborating using ERP. Participants gain more than just an appreciation of enterprise software—they also witness the impact on company performance of communicating and collaborating up- and downstream in an end-to-end process.


Learning hands on in a real system was priceless! We had super users right along with senior executives getting really into it. The competition was a fun component, but so was getting to see how SAP was a truly integrated system real time.

Benefits

AWAKEN UNDERSTANDING OF THE VALUE OF YOUR INITIATIVE

GARNER SUPPORT AMONG KEY STAKEHOLDERS

ERPsim provides the ”Aha!” moments that make people support digital transformation and embrace enterprise software, especially in SAP S/4HANA implementation or upgrade.

MAINTAIN MOMENTUM THROUGHOUT THE JOURNEY

Keep your initiative moving forward by having multiple teams participate as needed. Revitalize support for digital transformation by running ERPsim to help people understand why it matters.

Features

Experiential learning

Guided realization

Each simulation concludes with a debrief in which participants reflect on their decision-making thinking and behavior and the impact on outcomes, with the help of the instructor. This vital process clarifies learning points that emerged during the simulation and helps participants, regardless of how they performed, understand the factors that determine performance.

How it works

After you’ve scheduled a certified ERPsim instructor for your simulation, gather participants in a room and place them in teams of three or four.

  • Each participant must be equipped with a laptop to connect to the ERPsim interface via Wi-Fi during the simulation.
  • The simulation is divided into timed rounds in which each minute represents a day.
  • During each round, team members must collaborate using real-time SAP S/4HANA data and analytics to aid their decision making.
  • After the simulation is complete, the instructor leads a debrief session that solidifies and enhances the learning experience, turning “Aha!” moments into memorable lessons.
