This thesis aims to investigate the extent and limitations of managerial accounting concepts within ERP systems for medium to big-sized companies, whose transactions and data generation are huge and require integrated, online, and real-time processing on a common database. The main purpose for managerial accounting within standard ERP systems is to automate costing, budgeting, and cost accounting by integrating with functional modules. This is not complete automation. The extent and limitations of this automation are studied and shown in this thesis. In this context, ABC which is developed in the 90s and integrated into ERP software in the 2000s is studied and data definitions, transactions, and data models are determined for better integration. As ERP software packages are regarded as dough to be shaped for each company, the results of this thesis are expected to help and/or improve the success of implementations of ERP systems and enterprise systems, especially for managerial accounting issues. Furthermore, it is aimed to have financially more functional ERP systems by better integrating managerial accounting concepts to enterprise systems.


The scope of auctions in the presence of downstream interactions and information externalities
Koska, Ahmet Onur; Onur, Ilke; Staehler, Frank (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-10-01)
We scrutinize the scope of auctions for firm acquisitions in the presence of downstream interactions and information externalities. We show that no mechanism exists that allows an investor to acquire a low-cost firm under incomplete information: a separating auction implies adverse selection and relies substantially on commitment to allocation and transfer rules. A pooling auction serves as a commitment device against ex-post opportunistic behavior and alleviates adverse selection. It can earn the investor ...

Kenaroğlu, Bahar; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2004)
In this study, a research is developed to establish a comprehensive framework for ERP systems selection process and provide guidance for better ERP systems selection and evaluation by investigating all the aspects of the selection process. The research is conducted through a comprehensive study prior to key information systems journals, conferences, overall enterprise information systems materials in electronic databases, and also in practitioner journals. As a result, the study is able to present a compreh...
The strong partial transitive-closure problem: Algorithms and performance evaluation
Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (1996-08-01)
The development of efficient algorithms to process the different forms of transitive-closure (To) queries within the context of large database systems has recently attracted a large volume of research efforts. In this paper, we present two new algorithms suitable for processing one of these forms, the so called strong partially instantiated transitive closure, in which one of the query's arguments is instantiated to a set of constants and the processing of which yields a set of tuples that draw their values...
A computer-supported methodology for requirements modelling in CIM for small and medium size enterprises: A demonstration in Apparel Industry
Hashemipour, M; Anlagan, O; Kayaligil, S (1997-01-01)
This paper discusses the first phase of a computer-assisted methodology for implementing CIM within small and medium enterprises. Some of the existing methodologies and tools were furnished by extra items to ease the process for small and medium size manufacturing companies. The methodology aims at using limited expertise, limited staff, and minimising cost. The existing analysis tools (i.e. DFDs, ELH, and tools in the GRAI methodology) were modified and a new tool was developed (PIFR) to shed light on the ...
