Abstract: In this ERP era, the learning of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) has been common and popular in colleges or universities since that ERP system plays a critical role for assisting business operation and performance. However, to the student who lacks of practical experience and imagination about the real business, it is a challenge for learning and performance. This study proposes an innovative game-based simulation approach for teaching ERP and business concepts, which are composed of game-based learning, situated learning, computer-based testing. The gamebased simulation system is developed by 3ds Max and Unity 3D of business situation for enhancing learners’ interest and understanding the business procedures in real business, and then conducted a computer-based testing for evaluating the performance of ERP learning. The three objectives of this system are: (1) to develop a hands-on understanding of the concepts underlying enterprise information systems and business operation, (2) to experience the benefits of enterprise information integration, and (3) to develop technical skills at using ERP software. In addition, this study provides an alternative for education about business management related, and it may benefits both to academic and practice.
