I’m working on a accounting project and need support to help me learn.
Create a 4 – 6 pages report that summarizes and discusses your performance in the six rounds of play in the ERPSim Extended Manufacturing Game on April 29 and May 4. The report should be structured to include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Like an executive summary, the report should act as a concise version of a larger report.
The introduction should be a generally summary of what’s to come. What place did you come in? Ok, now entice the reader to want to keep reading, by promising to explain why, and by using what?
The body of your report should focus on the key performance indicators (KPI) provided in the end-of-round financial statements (e.g., Total Sales, Gross Margin, Net Margin, Round Productivity). Use as few, or as many, as you feel you can explain your performance.
Each KPI should contain at least one visualization. The visualizations are an effective way to communicate a large amount of data (especially numeric), but you still need to explain why it’s relevant.
The conclusion should wrap up the story and offer suggestions on how you would do things differently to improve your performance.
Most of you have played this game enough times that this report should write itself. Look at the KPI. What was your goal? Where did you end up? Why your actual performance deviated from your expectations? How did the teams ahead of you do? Create visualizations to support your explanations or arguments. Do that for each of the KPI that is relevant.
