Abstract: It has been argued that problem-based learning is a valuable approach to teach operation management, as it allows learners to apply their knowledge and skills in an environment that is close to real-life. In fact, many simulations currently exist in teaching operation management. However, these simulations lack a connection to real-life as they are typically turn-based and do not use real-life IT support. This paper intend to address this issue by presenting an innovative pedagogical approach aiming at providing learners with an authentic problem solving experience in operation management experience within an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
