- Very confusing and inconsistent» (Small extent)
- No dynamism during lectures. The seminar wasn"t rich it was more a session of presentations than a seminar with discussion. Guess lectures not very well organized and focused on relevant issues. Too many book chapters covered in a few hours of lecture. Lack of a summary class that emphasizes the objectives accomplished and other critical aspects of the course.» (Small extent)
- Stig Arne Mattsson"s lecture was really good» (Small extent)
- Missing "red thread" in the lectures. The last lecture should have been a course summary and old exam review (since there are no old exams, make a few exam style questions and discuss)» (Some extent)
- Rushing through 10 chapters at a 4 hour lecture doesn"t provide with much detailed information. » (Some extent)
- the laboration should absolutely be scheduled during the first weeks. It is really hard for those who havnt read anything aboyt databases before the course. » (Some extent)

- Worst book ever» (Small extent)
- I really did not like the book. It felt more like a "fiction" book to it"s caracter than a course book» (Small extent)
- boken är aldeles för detaljerad och riktad till att arbeta med systemet och kunna söka upp information vid problem. ger ingen bra helhetsyn på vad ERP är och hur det fungerar.» (Small extent)
- The book was really hard to read. It was a little bit easier when you sat with the slides but not a lot. The examples didn"t give any understanding and it was not really focused on the erp more on the supply chain issues. » (Small extent)
- The course book was not good at all.» (Small extent)
- the book is so hard to read, too compact reading» (Small extent)
- The ERP book is poorly written, seems like the author got paid per word. Lots of unnecessary text in it. Book content does not really meet course content.» (Small extent)
- The book was were hard to grasp when don"t have any priror knowledge of ERP systems at all. Would also have been good with literature about EDI, integration and other areas covered during lectures.» (Some extent)
- Book quite disorganized and containing many details difficult to understand just in theory (it would have been very useful to have more "laboratory" sessions). Just a few articles and they were not discussed during classes.» (Some extent)
- Find a new book please, hard to read and do not give good konwledge» (Some extent)
- The book was a dictionary for managers that already had a good feeling for MRP, maybe not the best course literature for beginners. » (To satisfactory extent)

- Terrible administration» (Very badly)
- The information was late. We should have had the results for the case before the exam. There should have been more information about the case and the laboration from the beginning.» (Very badly)
- Very, very poor communiaction to students. Schedule was seldom updated and lectures cancelled all the time. Handouts put out late or never put out at all. Group assignment posted very late etc etc.» (Very badly)
- That we had questions covering things that we didn"t even have in our material (islands of isolated data problem). And also we didn"t even get the edi-lecture in powerpoint presentation and that was a large part of the course!!!» (Very badly)
- Everything was always late I think, it took quite a while until the course pm was to be found on the homepage.» (Very badly)
- Sorry to say that, but Henrik failed his job, instead of showing inadequate behaviour to students, he should have focused more on improving administration. Also seems like communication between teacher and assistant didnt work well. Handout and information distribution was often late. Information itself could have been statet more clearly. Reading instructions where way to general.» (Very badly)
- Change of schedule all the time, cancellation of classes. Very irretating.» (Very badly)
- lack in relevant information, for example a lot of confusion regarding the assignment » (Rather badly)
- Information was late. Some handout were late.» (Rather badly)
- Could put up the slides a little bit earlier.» (Satisfactory)

- One of the most challenging things in this course and then it was mainly about collecting facts. » (I have learned some from this exercise)
- The seminar was not demanding at all. After the seminar we should have had some feedback for improving the report (you should have read the report before the seminar).» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- This was really good. Some more writing advice and goals/grading criteria would be good though» (Well, I have learned from this exercise)
- Gave a good overview of ERP and a specific module. Also good that we had seminars so you could get information about lots of different modules.» (Very well, I have learned a lot from this exercise)

- Just following instructions does not mean you learn» (Not at all, I did not learn anything new from this exercise)
- I will never ever by the IFS system... So un-intuitive to use and I see no point in just clicking around in a system. When we start working we will need to learn whatever system they use. However it was really good that the two page hand-in was changed to just filling out a form, that was enough and it would have been impossible to write two relevant pages on that.» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- Would have been good if this exercise had been in the beginning of the coures for the understanding. Don"t need that much introductory info befor the lab. Better to get some hands on experiencebefor you attend all theoretical lectures.» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- Interesting to see an erp system. should have come a lot earlier during the course. » (I have learned some from this exercise)
- This exercise should have been scheduled in the beginning of the course instead of five days before the exam.» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- it was good and relevant. Not too hard for anybody. But again, it has to be placed earlier!!» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- Use the software was one of the best parts of the course BUT there were TOO many people in the room (3 people per computer!!!), many didn"t do anything. All four hours should have been used instead of just 2!! » (I have learned some from this exercise)
- More information about what exactly we where doing there would have been helpful, instead of just having a work-trough paper.» (I have learned some from this exercise)
- It would have been good with some more introduction when we came there. You didn"t really understand everything that you were doing.» (The learning has been satisfactory)
- det hjälpte inte inför tentan men det är bra att ha sett programmet.» (Well, I have learned from this exercise)
- Good with a "hands-on-exercise" of an ERP system.» (Well, I have learned from this exercise)

- The worst course I have had during my entire time at Chalmers (5 years)» (Poor)
- 1. The schedules had been changed for too many times. 2. There"s no clear instruction of reading material. 3. The literature was extremely difficult to read and understand since there"s no structure and coherence at all...i have no idea why you chose this book. 4. There"s no detailed instruction of the examination and the sample exams on the website are useless for the coming exam..seem like the examinator doesn"t care about the students at all.» (Poor)

- Unbelievable bad to not have a real course closure where a sum up of the course, and questions about the exam can take place.» (Poor)

- Worst course so far in my education» (Poor)
- I didn"t feel that this course added that much to my knowledge. Most of it has been discussed in part in other courses.» (Fair)

- The study material, the set up and the general mindset from the professors.»
- didn"t learn anything from database or IFS-assignments.»
- Quicker division of case subjects.»
- The course book and the course administration.»
- Dynamism in the lectures Seminar more demanding and with more discussion More laboratory exercise Better articles The assignment should be more connected (the three parts were completely different) The exam Course organization (schedule, hand outs) The hand outs should be printed and distributed Some guess lecturers »
- Introduce seminars! The examiner should be more present and interested in the course»
- Henrik Sternberg! Sorry nothing personal, but inadequate behaviour to students plus a very poor performance in distributing information and answering questions disqualify him as course assistent.»
- The book, the lectures, the database part, IFS exersise»
- the administration»

25. Please give some additional comments

- All in all, as evry one knows and says, the course itself, litreture, course assistant, and lectures was one of the worst course I have ever had. It was a deficiency from department!»
- How many points are needed for the different grades in this course? that is still not clear to me, two days after the exam...»
- old exams to know what is expected from us. when having an old exam that is completely different on the course homepage we get the wrong impression of what you think is important for us to learn.»
- Im not very pleased in general. Try to get better organization next year»
- Focus on improving information distribution and the quality of the information itself. Hand out reading instructions for the lectures (e.g. stated in schedule). Do not upload docx documents.»
- Ola, I can"t belive that this is a mandatory course, I don"t want to waste my time on this, please do something, This is not Chalmers quality»
