Overview: This book will give students an understanding of the complexities and difficulties associated with configuring a major Enterprise System to meet the Business Process needs of an enterprise.  It will make clear the kinds of business process-related decisions that must be made and the data that must be established in such a system to make it function as desired.  In addition, this book will give students a feel for the variety of configuration options possible in an Enterprise System.  It will also familiarize students with the mechanics of SAP configuration.  As a side effect of working through the step by step configuration provided in the book, it will provide ample opportunities to develop and exercise troubleshooting and problem solving skills.
