For this component you will be required to analyze a case study of an organization and write
a report on it on a recent academic paper on a topic related to ERP implementation on any
organization. Some possible topic areas include but are not limited to:
• Digital Transformation
• An analysis of success and failure factors for ERP Systems in Engineering and

The paper you select must be directly relevant to one of the above topics or another topic
and be related to ERP or Software Engineering. The paper must be approved by your lecturer
and be related to what we are studying this semester in Enterprise Resource Planning. The
paper can be from any academic conference or other relevant Journal or online sources such
as Google Scholar, Academic department repositories, or a significant commercial company
involved in research such as IBM etc. All students must select a different paper. Thus, the
paper must be approved by your lecturer before proceeding. In case two students are wanting
to present on the same paper, the first who emails the lecturer with their choice will be
allocated that paper. Please note that popular magazine or web-site articles are not academic
A grade of 10% of the Units mark will be awarded for your presentation and your participation
in other student presentations. You are to prepare a set of powerpoint slides for your
presentation. If you do not participate in at least 70% of other student’s presentations, you
will forfeit a significant proportion of the marks for this component.

Note: if class numbers are large the presentations may be organized into groups, but students
will still all need to select their own individual paper for Assignment 2. In the case where
presentations are arranged in groups each group can decide which students’ paper will be
used for the presentation.
The presentations will occur in sessions 5-12 on the academic calendar for the semester and
the order of presentations will be by arrangement, but these will be evenly spread over those

explaining the abstract.
Your report should be limited to approx. 2000 words (not including references). Use 1.5

References: A list of sources used in your text. They should be listed alphabetically by (first)
author’s family name. Follow the IEEE style.
The footer must include your name, student ID, and page number.
Note: reports submitted on papers which are not approved or not the approved paper
registered for the student will not be graded and attract a zero (0) grade.
All submissions are to be submitted through turn-it-in. Submit your report to the Moodle dropbox for Assignment 2. Drop-boxes linked to turn-it-in will be set up in the Unit of Study Moodle
account. Assignments not submitted through these drop-boxes will not be considered.
Submissions must be made by the due date and time (which will be in the session detailed above) and
determined by your Unit coordinator. Submissions made after the due date and time will be penalized
at the rate of 10% per day (including weekend days).
The turn-it-in similarity score will be used in determining the level if any of plagiarism. Turn-it-in will
check conference web-sites, Journal articles, the Web and your own class member submissions for
plagiarism. You can see your turn-it-in similarity score when you submit your assignment to the
appropriate drop-box. If this is a concern you will have a chance to change your MITS6004 Case Study
and Presentation – 1 Copyright©2015-2018VIT,AllRightsReserved. assignment and re-submit.
However, re-submission is only allowed prior to the submission due date and time.
After the due date and time have elapsed you cannot make re-submissions and you will have to live
with the similarity score as there will be no chance for changing. Thus, plan early and submit early to
take advantage of this feature. You can make multiple submissions, but please remember we only see
the last submission, and the date and time you submitted will be taken from that submission.
Your document should be a single word or pdf document containing your report.
