This paper describes the introduction of a simulation game into an IS class for business students not majoring in IS. The intention was to give the students experience in business processes and to demonstrate the importance of all components of an information system in providing information for business decision making. The students found the game enjoyable and (surprisingly to many) relatively easy to use. They gained an appreciation of ERP capabilities and saw how they might use such systems in their future workplaces. In addition to the enjoyment they also saw some of the implications of not following procedures or team members not completing their assigned tasks. The students strongly supported its inclusion in the course in future years.
