Brewer Science,with its headquarter in Rolla, Missouri, has been actively supporting Missouri S&T education. Working with Center for Enterprise Recourse Planning (ERP), the Brewer Science management team has shared insights on business analytics and enterprise applications with 2018 ERP Simulation Competition teams on April 5. Brewer Science management team includes Ms. Rachel Jung, Director of IT Enterprise Applications, Kamal Malhotra, Director of Financial Systems and Procurement, and Satheesh Ramasamy, Enterprise Applications: IT Oracle Applications Specialist.

The company is a global technology leader developing and manufacturing innovative materials, and processes for the fabrication of semiconductors and microelectronic devices. The local company, Brewer Science supports customers throughout the world with a service and distribution network in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Brewer Science management team hosted the second round of the 2018 ERP simulation completion. Teams formed by graduate and undergraduate students from different majors at Missouri S&T, operate a manufacturing company that utilizes SAP ERP system and analytics tools like; SAP, IBM, SAS, and Tableau. Each competitive team designed their own recipe, chose their target market, and allocated their money towards selected business operation in a simulated environment located in Germany. Using their critical thinking, technical, and business knowledge to gain an advantage over their competitors, the teams competed to win a greater share of the market and higher profit.

After the competition, Ms. Jung advised the teams to not only focus on the technical application of the competition, but also the communication and relationship building skills. The competition allows students to see how their knowledge really applies to the real world. She then expressed the importance of how, “technology is extremely dynamic and fast. One must be willing to change and evolve alongside it.” The wisdom of Ms. Jung will not be forgotten as Missouri S&T continues the competition.
