601 Introduction to Enterprise Engineering: Engineering and Policy (3:3:0) Provides overview of extended enterprise integration using modern standard software solutions and tools. Focuses on integration and management aspects of extended enterprise solutions. Topics include enterprise resource planning and e-business extensions. Students must demonstrate complete proficiency in modern implementation methodology and supporting tools.
602 Decision Support for Enterprise Integration (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 601. Lectures focus on using “business intelligence” to enhance competitive advantage, developing information-driven set of controls to improve profitability, and creating balanced business with aligned corporate direction and strategic intent. Examines solutions within enterprise resource planning systems.
603 Supply Chain Integration and Management (Business-to-Business Electronic Commerce) (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 601. Focuses on two issues: supply chain integration from information technology perspective, and supply chain management from decision support perspective. Course motivation is merging of enterprise computing with operations research, primarily through customer and supply chain management systems. Topics include enterprise resource planning and web integration, advanced planning and scheduling, and CPFR.
604 E-Commerce Architectures (Business-to-Consumer Electronic Commerce) (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 601. Introduces network and system architectures that support high-volume, business-to-consumer web sites and portals. Provides insight into structure of modern web-enabled storefront. Critical business and technology issues include storage area networks, server clustering, load balancing techniques at server and network levels, fault tolerance, and recovery of database and application servers.
605 Economics of Electronic Commerce (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 601. Focuses on gaining competitive advantage through electronic commerce implementation; identification and growing of new market opportunities and electronic enabling of existing business relationships; business-to- consumer relationships and economics of strategic procurement; enterprise resource planning hosting; customer relationship management; catalog hosting; portal operations; and supplier management.
606 Customer Relationship Management (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 601. Modern world of e-commerce extends intraenterprise integration, as implemented in enterprise resource planning systems, to include external constituents such as customers, partners, and suppliers. Course focuses on modern system support for demand chain, and value-creation process that results from integrating “front office” and “back office” systems.
607 Critical Information Technology Infrastructures (3:3:0) Prerequisite: EEP 604. Focuses on design and implementation of high-speed network and application services in support of modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Critical technologies include high-speed data communication, switched vs. routed data flow, workflow engines, business rule and web application servers, and load-balancing technologies. Large-scale, web-enabled ERP system architecture examined in detail.
608 Optimization of Supply Chains (3:3:0) Prerequisites: MATH 203 and 213, and graduate standing. Focuses on supply chain optimization from enterprise-wide perspective, and supply chain optimization from business-to-business e-commerce perspective. Explores optimizing value of goods and services and assuring reasonable return on such sales. Describes heuristic and exact algorithms for scheduling, production, inventory management, logistics, and distribution. Presents new software that enables such optimization, and new techniques to handle risk, quality of data, and robustness of solutions. Outlines manufacturing and service examples from public and private sectors. Students perform case studies using state-of-art software.
609 Special Topics in Enterprise Engineering and Policy (1–3:1–3:0) Topics not covered in regular EEP course offerings; content varies each semester.
610 Project in Enterprise Engineering and Policy (3:3:0) Focuses on completing capstone project in enterprise engineering and policy. Designed as two-semester project, with student closely guided by faculty advisor. Topic selected by mutual agreement with faculty advisor.
