Course Description:

Students get acquainted with the employment of standard software within various organizational areas including accountancy. Basic aspects of adapting standard software to operational structures (i.e.customizing) and managing user authorization are discussed.
Students gain insights into several important application areas of business computer science.

The course is focused on the practical work with an Enterprise Resource Planning system (following the concept: learning by doing) in the areas of logistics and accountancy. Students should get a practical understanding of the integration of business processes by means of software within an enterprise. Exercises are carried out on an ERP system from SAP, a major software vendor in this.
Students get familiar with the SAP user interface, related customization tasks, and application components in different operational functions. Functions and modules include sales and
distribution, material management, production planning and control (PP), controlling (CO), and financial accounting (FI). Within the exercises, the SAP specific "IDES Mandant" will be used.
Content:

  • ERP / SAP introduction
  • SAP ECC 6.0 - the system and its navigation
  • IDES client
  • SAP - system-wide concepts (organization units, master data, transactions)

    Content:

    The course instills an understanding for the basic significance of knowledge and information management in today’s information society and the possibilities and difficulties in using large information quantities. In addition to business-process-oriented knowledge management using the example of information flow in inter-business business processes, the focus of the seminars lies on Information Retrieval. This subject deals with the computer-aided search for complex content in large data quantities, in which this data is rated according to its relevance to the search query; this is applied mainly in search engines.

    Individual areas of Information Retrieval are studied in more detail, including both technological and social aspects. The course discusses the principles of search engines, architectures, and components of search engines, calculating the relevance of search results, the search for multimedia objects and XML documents, the risks of searching on the Web, the quasi-monopoly of Google, and the private sphere when using search engines.

    Topics:

    • Principles of knowledge management, business-process-oriented knowledge management
    • Principles of information retrieval
    • Search engine technologies (e.g. crawling, indexing, ranking) and architectures, search in distributed systems
    • Relevance calculation on the basis of information retrieval models
    • Social aspects and applications of information retrieval
    • Risks when searching on the Web, e.g. manipulation and violation of privacy
    • Social search, multimedia retrieval, web retrieval, XML retrieval
    • Current trends in knowledge management and information retrieval

     

    Obtaining course credit:

    The entire "Knowledge Management" module (2 units) is assessed via an examination (Unit "Organizational learning", 50%) and a take-home assignment (Unit "KM and information retrieval", 50%)

    Schedule:

    Start looking for your topic on time – in our experience it takes a while until you decide on an area and can develop a structure for it. Take into account that a Bachelor thesis has a work load of 300 hrs in 2 months; i.e. between registration and submission you really don't have much time to visit lectures, study for examinations, or go to work – plan on time.

    You should also perform literature research in the preparation phase – if you want to decide on a subject area, you first have to get an overview of it. Careful preparation will benefit you later in the writing phase. 

    Colloquium dates in the non-lecture period are usually very difficult to coordinate. For this reason, make your plans so that your date is during the lecture period (take correction time into account). For the last two weeks of the writing phase, you should also ensure that that you can reach me in case of problems (also coordinate the time frame when planning). In the WS, you should register your paper at the latest by mid-November, in the SS by mid-May.

    Colloquium:

    Do not look at the colloquium as an oral examination, but as a technical discussion (even though there will be a grade). Here, you can show yourself as an expert in the discussed field by presenting the most important insights and results of your paper in brief (ca. 10 minutes). You can use slides if you wish. Afterwards (or during), we will discuss these results (ca. 20 minutes).

    Notes on formal requirements:

    • In terms of the form of the paper, organization and uniformity are especially important to me (e.g. I don't care whether the footnote is written before or after the period; but it should be uniform). The references are important (see below).
    • Please take note of the section "Useful Information for Students" on my website, in particular concerning citations / references. Pay attention to the quality of your sources and reference all your statements adequately. 
    • You can find more information here: www.jankowski-multimedia.de/fh/klaus/ubt.htm

    Useful information for students

    • You can find notes on academic papers (principles to ensure good academic practice, guidelines, design suggestions, notes on libraries and data bases, tutorials for research, trainings, tutorial programs etc.) on the pages of Faculty (FB) 3.
    • Requirements for written papers: Comprehensive collection by Dr. Jankowski, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, Faculty 3. Comments on content, title pages, layout, citations, scheduling... incl. reference to multiple-choice test on the e-Learning platform Moodle
    General information for citations
    • If you reference knowledge in academic papers (e.g. seminar papers, take-home assignments, thesis papers etc.) that you have not developed yourself, then you must cite it (not only literal quotes!)
    • It is important to have well-organized, uniform, and complete references.
    • Wikipedia is not an academic source and should therefore only be referenced if absolutely necessary (e.g. illustrations).
    • You can find a lot of additional information about proper citations in applicable literature or on the Internet...
    Citations in paper for which I act as an advisor
    • You should reference every source in the text itself per brief reference (e.g. format [Arki02]) and then state author, title, year, and page in a footnote. The complete information (e.g. publisher, place of publication) then follows in the bibliography.
    • In the bibliography, please always format the title in bold.
    • Please, even for internet sources, also ensure that you always cite author, title of the page, location, date (unless otherwise stated, this information is often provided in the imprint) and the date you accessed it.
    • Notes on format: Computer Science citations
