Students need to illustrate their knowledge of SAP-SCM module gained in series of hands-on workshops using the Global Bike Company (GBC). This is an individual assignment requiringeach student to submit the written assignment for assessment. Failing to do so will fail in the unit.


You can complete the assignment as you progress in your tutorial exercises. It involves capturing selected screen shots while working on the exercises. I would suggest to going through the questions below and copying the required screen shots to your assignment Doc file as you progress. Alternatively, you can complete the whole workshop and then work on your assignment.

Importantly, students need to illustrate that they have a full understanding of the SCM module, and the way it relates to theories discussed in the lecture.

Written Report and Submission:

Each student isrequired to present an individual written assignment, with each question being clearly labeled. Make sure that it is written in your own words and Harvard referencing is used as appropriate. The header sheet for this assignment includes:

  • Your name
  • Your student VU ID
  • Your unique SAP-APO Log in ID: SCM-xxx


Submission requirement:

Submit one hardcopy to your tutor, and electronic copy to VU collaborate (no turnitin requirement). Your ID will be locked soon after you hand in the assignment not allowing you to work further during the assessment. It will be released once the marking is complete.


IMPORTANT: Each question requiresspecific screenshot. No mark will be given for any irrelevant screenshots.
