Q. Why ERP?a) ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. Enterprise Resource Planning systems integrate all data and processes of an organization into unified system. The key feature of an ERP system is it uses a single or unified database to store data for the various system modules.SAP in present scenarioOn April 1, 1972 five former IBM employees founded SAP as Systemanalyse und Programmentwicklung (Systems Analysis and Program Development) in Mannheim, Germany. Their vision was to develop and market standard enterprise software which would integrate all business processes. The idea came to them through their work as systems consultants for IBM when they noticed that client after client was developing the same, or very similar, computer programs. The second part of their vision was that data should be processed interactively in realtime, and the computer screen should become the focal point of data processing.In 1972 the SAP R/1 solution was launched. Seven years later, in 1979, SAP launched SAP R/2. In 1981, SAP brought a completely re-designed solution to market. With the change from R/2 to R/3 in 1992, SAP followed the trend from mainframe computing to client-server architectures. The development of SAPs internet strategy with mySAP.com redesigned the concept of business processes (integration via Internet)

PROJECT

What is project?A) Organization perform work, work generally involves either operation or projects. It is performed by the people with limited and unlimited period and with limited resources in order to create a unique product or services. Limited means projects has a definite begging and definite ending. Unique means that the product or services is different in some distinguishing way from all similar products or services. Projects are undertaken at all levels of organization. Effecting the changes instructures, staffing or style in organization, getting the modified information system.

This document is structured as follows: Section I It first outlines the scope of the Implementation, which was given in the Proposal Documents by COMPANY, during the bidding stage. It then goes on to describe the Methodology followed during the Business Blueprint Phase and the Methodology henceforth for the remaining portion of the Implementation. Section II Subsequently, it describes the processes and the sub-processes that form part of the processes. As we look at each sub-process, the document also captures the developments that need to be done to bring in the required functionality into SAP. Section III A summary of the development requirements will follow, wherein the price elements are summarized and the overall tally will be given. This will form the scope of developments during the Realization Phase Section IV Lastly, a section on the Users Roles has been given, wherein the User Roles and the sub-processes to which they would have access has been determined. This is the Level I mapping of User Roles. Section V This section also contains the Portals Blueprint with the Design for the same

ASAP Methodology (Phases of SAP Implementation project)

Q. What is an SAP Implementation/ ASAP Methodology?A) ASAP stands for Accelerated SAP. Its purpose is to help design SAP implementation in the most efficient manner possible. Its goal is to effectively optimize time, people, quality and other resources, using a proven methodology to implementation. ASAP focuses on tools and training, wrapped up in a five-phase process oriented road map for guiding implementation. A methodology should contain precise project plan. It was designed to support the rapid and efficient implementation of R/3 systems. ASAP is a solution from SAP to stream line customer implementation and deliver faster business results. ASAP incorporates a step by step approach and avoids non values added tasks. ASAP provides a baseline for business process requirement, configuration / testing and end-user procedure / training. ASAP methodology is tool which is used how to implement SAP project. Broadly, the Methodology that has been followed has been the ASAP Methodology, with a few changes to suit this particular Project. ASAP (Accelerated SAP) Methodology has various stages:

The road map is composed of five well-known consecutive phases: Phase 1 Project Preparation Phase 2 Business Blueprint Phase 3 Realization Phase 4 Final Preparation Phase 5 Go-Live and support. A) Phase 1: Project PreparationThe Project began with the Project Preparation Phase, wherein the detailed Project Plan and the Project Charter were made. This was submitted and is being followed by all members of the client Team.Phase 1 initiates with a retrieval of information and resources. It is an important time to assemble the necessary components for the implementation. Some important milestones that need to be accomplished for phase 1 include Obtaining senior-level management/stakeholder support identifying clear project objectives architect an efficient decision-making process creating an environment suitable for change and re-engineering Building a qualified and capable project team. One of the most important milestones with phase 1 of ASAP is the full agreement and cooperation of the important company decision-makers - key stake holders and others. Their backing and support is crucial for a successful implementation.

1) Creating a favorable project environment facilitating communication and team working. Laptops and phones and communication directly with each other in order to solve the problems quickly and ensure effective teamwork. 2) Project training what is client BBP what are the requirements, who has to do each sub module what are the deadlines and buffer time. This training period can be reducing consumption of waste time. Meetings and training should be carried out continually through the implementations. It is responsibility of the consultants to carry out on going knowledge transfer and make sure that the project team members are fully trained in their areas. In the workshop the team members can start being productive from day one. It is standard process for implementation of SAP 3) Preparing goals and objectives, assigning the roles and plan for development strategy.Clear project objectives:-Be concise in defining what your objectives and expectations are for this venture. Vague or unclear notions of what you hope to obtain with SAP will handicap the implementation process. Also make sure that your expectations are reasonable considering your company's resources. It is essential to have clearly defined ideas, goals and project plans devised before moving forward.An efficient decision making process:One obstacle that often stalls implementation is a poorly constructed decision-making process. Before embarking on this venture, individuals need to be clearly identified. Decide now who is responsible for different decisions along the way. From day one, the implementation decision makers and project leaders from each area must be aware of the onus placed on them to return good decisions quickly.Environment suitable for change and re engineering: Your team must be willing to accept that, along with new SAP software, things are going to change, the business will change, and information technology enabling the business will change as well. By implementing SAP, you will essentially redesign your current practices to model more efficient or predefined best business practices as espoused by SAP. Resistance to this change will impede the progress of your implementation.B) Phase 2- (BBP - Business Blueprint) (BPP - Business Process Procedures) (BPD -- Business Process Document)SAP has defined a business blueprint phase to help extract pertinent information about our company that is necessary for implementation. These blueprints are in the form of questionnaires that are designed to probe for information that uncovers how your company does business. As such, they also serve to document the implementation. Each business blueprint document

ssentially outlines your future business processes and business requirements. The kinds of questions asked are germane to the particular business function, as seen in the following sample questions:What information do you capture on a purchase order?What information is required to complete a purchase order?Accelerated SAP question and answer database:The question and answer database (QADB) is a simple although aging tool designed to facilitate the creation and maintenance of your business blueprint. This database stores the questions and the answers and serves as the heart of your blue print. Customers are provided with a customer input template for each application that collects the data. The question and answer format is standard across applications to facilitate easier use by the project team.Issues databaseAnother tool used in the blueprinting phase is the issues database. This database stores any open concerns and pending issues that relate to the implementation. Centrally storing this information assists in gathering and then managing issues to resolution, so that important matters do not fall through the cracks. You can then track the issues in database, assign them to team members, and update the database accordingly.Here the ASIS, TOBE and gaps analysis is explained. This the document that you will be using to do your configuration in the realization phase. Consisting of identifying the client current process, requirement and how SAP provide solutions, consists of detailed documentation. ASIS here to understand the existing business of the client. Prepare the questioner

BPO - Business processors owner is the clients employees who known about the client business process probably a middle management guy. BPO involvement is requiring as he may be able to tell you his requirements better. BPO can start learning with the consultant help more about the SAP. It is good practice to ask the BPO to make flow charts to explain business process.

TOBE Parallel you map theses processes to SAP. Once you do the business modeling will also be make aware of the gaps between ASIS and TOBE. This is the document that you will be using to do your configuration realization phase. During the Business Blueprint Phase, there have been multiple discussions with the COMPANY Implementation Team as well as the Users from the respective Development Department. Over these discussions, a high degree of process understanding has been developed by the Implementation Team. The processes that would form part of the client implementation. For the Business Blueprint, the reference documents were the CLIENT Documents and the Process Maps that were provided to the Implementation

artner by COMPANY. These documents were initially discussed with the Users and a Gaps document was made. This Gaps document detailed the Gaps between the existing client system and the requirements of the Users. This document, the Business Blueprint Document, is the key deliverable of the Business Blueprint Phase. The objective of this document is to capture the processes that have been finalized during the Business Blueprint on the business requirements. This document would provide the way forward during the Realization phase, where these processes will be configured in the SAP System. C) Phase 3 RealizationWith the completion of the business in phase 2, "functional" experts are now ready to begin configuring SAP. The Realization phase is broken in to two parts. Your SAP consulting team helps you configure your baseline system, called the baseline configuration. Your implementation project team fine-tunes that system to meet all your business and process requirements as part of the fine tuning configurationRealization phase Here you do the configuration in the development server. We creates master data, formats reports etc. The initial configuration completed during the base line configuration is based on the information that you provided in your blueprint document. The remaining approximately 20% of your configuration that was not tackled during the baseline configuration is completed during the fine tuning configuration. Fine tuning usually deals with the exceptions that are not covered in baseline configuration. This final bit of tweaking represents the work necessary to fit your special needs. During the Realization Phase, the Design Documents and details for the Development Requirements will be made and used for developments. In addition, both the Implementation Team as well as the Users will prepare Test Plans for testing various scenarios. Here where most of the implementation work takes place. Configuration Testing:With the help of your SAP consulting team, you segregate your business processes into cycles of related business flows. The cycles serve as independent units that enable you to test specific parts of the business process. You can also work through configuring the SAP implementation guide (IMG). A tool used to assist you in configuring your SAP system in a step by step mannerKnowledge Transfer:As the configuration phase comes to a close, it becomes necessary for the Project team to be self-sufficient in their knowledge of the configuration of your

SAP system. Knowledge transfer to the configuration team tasked with system maintenance (that is, maintenance of the business processes after Go-live) needs to be completed at this time.In addition, the end users tasked with actually using the system for day-to-day business purposes must be trained.D) Phase 4 - Final Preparation:As phase 3 merges into phase 4, you should find yourselves not only in the midst of SAP training, but also in the midst of rigorous functional and stress testing. Phase 4 also concentrates on the fine tuning of your configuration before Go-live and more importantly, the migration of data from your old system or systems to SAP. Workload testing (including peak volume, daily load, and other forms of stress testing), and integration or functional testing are conducted to ensure the accuracy of your data and the stability of your SAP system. Because you should have begun testing back in phase 2, you do not have too far to go until Go-live. Now is an important time to perform preventative maintenance checks to ensure optimal performance at your SAP system. At the conclusion of phase 4, take time to plan and document a Go-live strategy. Preparation for Go-live means preparing for your end-users questions as they start actively working on the new SAP system. The quality assurance system is where all the final testing is conducted before moving the transports to the production environment. In finial preparation integration testing once all the modules testing is over then the configuration is transported to the quality server, where the testing for all the modules is done by the client (BPO) and end users. Once it is finalized in the Quality server then configuration is transported to production server. Subsequently, the Users would be trained and the Client SAP System would Go-Live on 01.02.2011.E) Phase 5 - Go-live and Support:The Go-live milestone is itself is easy to achieve; a smooth and uneventful Go-live is another matter altogether. Preparation is the key, including attention to what-if scenarios related not only to the individual business processes deployed but also to the functioning of technology underpinning these business processes and preparation for ongoing support, including maintenance contracts and documented processes and procedures are essential. The production system is where all the daily business activities occurs. It is also the client that all the end users to perform their daily job functions.

1.2. TYPES OF SAP PROJECTS:A) Full Life Cycle /End to-End Implementation projects (Described earlier)B) Rollout Implementation ProjectThe term rollout project refers to the process of repeated activation of one or more templates. In short, When the is implemented in the parent company and wanted the sister concern company also to be a part of sap then the Rollout Implementation is applied

C) Support ProjectOnce SAP project is implemented, it should be supported by the consultants in day-to-day business. In Support projects, the support team helps the customer in day-to-day business.

D) Upgrade / Migration Project As we see, SAP is continuously upgrading the R/3 software. Customers are moving from the older versions to new versions. When the customer decides to new version, it is called SAP Migration Projects or Upgradation Projects. Now -a -days many customers are migrating from older versions like 4.5 or 4.6B, 4.6C to ECC 5.0 or ECC 6.0 versions.

E) Testing ProjectsObjective of a SAP/ERP System Testing are to verify that the installed system which includes the SAP software, custom code and manual procedures, executes as specified and without error; to confirm with the users and management that the delivered system performs in accordance with the stated system requirements; and to ensure that the system works with other existing systems, including but not limited to interfaces, conversions, and reports

Advantages of SAP HR/PayrollSaving time and money, and improving information for decision-making and planning. Greater automation, ensuring greater accuracy and time savings.SAP is built to automatically apply policies and rules to employees data. In HRMS, this sort of information would be entered as required,keyed in by an employee. This will invariably result in acertain amount of inaccuracy, either through interpretation orsimple error. In fact, as SAP HR/Payroll was created, various instances were found of employees in HRMS who were receiving benefits they were not entitled to, or whohad been eligible for shift premiums but hadnot received them. As well, the reduced data entry will allow time for more value-adding activities.Improved reporting capability.Reports are tools managers can use to analyze their operations and find opportunities for improvement. For example, attendance reports, or workload reports .HRMS provided a limited number of standard reports in a format which could not be manipulated for more precise analysis. Reports would be ordered, and would typically take two days to arrive. SAP provides users direct access to thousands of standardreports, plus the ability to easily create custom reports. Reports can beexported into Excel for further manipulation orfiltering and then uploaded back to SAP.Improved position control.Information related to positions includes cost centre, report to and classification, for instance. SAP provides more position-related information than HRMS, and the information is presented in a much more user-friendly form yourself.Automated compensation adjustment.Prior to the introduction of SAP, compensation adjustments were calculated manually outside HRMS and thenkeyed in.Improved employee history data.This is essential planning information for various scenarios, for instance re-organization, or succession planning. SAP presents this information in a much more organized, user-friendly way.Better management of CUPE time data.CUPE employees time is tracked for payroll purposes, and is tracked against workcenters. This has required entry of the same datainto two different systems, but with SAP it will be entered once and thenshared by the HR moduleand the Plant Maintenance module. In additionto eliminating duplicate effort, this integration also allows exact planning in situations where wehave had to estimate.Better budgeting.Similarly to the CUPE time entry situation, budgeting will improve with exact planning information replacing estimates, as information on position requirements will be

Q What is an ERP?A) ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. ERP systems integrate all data and processes of an organization into unified system. The key feature of an ERP system is it uses a single or unified database to store data for the various system modules.

Q What results can be expected from an ERP Culture?A) Reduced working capital requirements, improve customer service, improve direct labor productivity, reduce purchase costs, reduce obsolescence, reduce overtime, having the figures to make decisions. Having accountability throughout the organization, improved quality of life.

Q What is SAP?A) SAP stands for Systems Applications and Products in data processing. SAP is an acronym for "System Application & Products" which creates a common centralized database for all the applications running in an organization. The application has been assembled in such a versatile way that it handles the entire functional department within an organization. The SAP ERP application is an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software manufactured by SAP AG that targets business software requirements of small size, midsize and large organizations in all industries and sectors. It is the successor product to SAP R/3.On April 1, 1972 five former IBM employees founded SAP as Systemanalyse und Programmentwicklung (Systems Analysis and Program Development) in Mannheim, Germany i.e Systems Applications and Products in data processing. Their vision was to develop and market standard enterprise software which would integrate all business processes. The second part of their vision was that data should be processed interactively in real-time, and the computer screen should become the focal point of data processing.Q What is SAP R/3 ArchitecturePresentation Layer SAP GUI is installed on Individual machines which acts as presentation layerApplication Layer Business logic is executed in this layer. The application layer can be installed on one machine, or it can be distributed among more than one system.Database Layer The database layer holds the data. One R/3 system is composed of exactly one database server accessing a single database, one or more application servers, and one or more presentation servers. In three-tier client/server architecture the Presentation servers, Application servers and database severs all run on separate machines. During an implementation, there is usually one system (or one database) assigned to development, one or more systems designated for testing, and one assigned to production In three-tier client/server architecture the Presentation servers, Application servers and database severs all run on separate machines. For large systems this is the most common configuration and is common in production.

Q What is Human Capital Management?A) The acquisition, deployment, development, retention, motivation, and empowerment of the skills, abilities, experience, and knowledge of the enterprises workforce and includes a strategy that measures the contribution of human capital to the success of the enterprise SAP HCM aligns HR activities with organizational objectives Focus on leadership succession, workforce planning, and organizational change Make HR services transparent Less dependence on HR Executive to execute employee-centric processes anywhere, anytime with user-friendly Employee Self Service & Manager Self Service applications. Reduced workload on HR.

Q What is R stands for?A) The R in SAP R/3 stands for real time data processing and number 3 relates to a 3 tier architecture. SAP R/3 is client /server based application, utilizing a 3 tiered model.A presentation layer or client interfaces with the userThe application layer houses all the business specific logic &The database layer records and stores all the information about the system including transactional & configuration data. It creates common centralized data base for all applications running in an organization. The SAP system is a fully-integrated system where activities in one area generate activities in another area The system provides online, real-time information and one place for input of data.

Q What is Development?A) Development means where the consultants do the Customization/Development as per the Organization's requirement. .What is Quality Assurance?A) Quality Assurance means where the core team members and other members test the Customization/Development.

Q What is production?A) Production means where the live data of the company is recorded. Users must be trained in Quality system before they start using the Production.

Q What system Landscape?A) Landscape is like a server system or like a layout of the servers or some may even call it the architecture of the server. SAP is a Three System Landscape - DEV, QAS and PROD. A Transport request will flow from Dev-> Qual ->Prod and not backwards.

Q What is a screen?A) Screen is to Access and do setting, delete, modify. There are number of screens in SAP. Words or characters that appear on the screen. These include field names, screen titles, pushbuttons as well as menu names, paths, options body text, titles of graphics and tables name of element in the system i.e reports names, program names transaction codes and individual key words of a programming language.

Q What is Session?A) It is a screen to learn how to work with different sessions of SAP.

Q What is real time?A) It describes how data that has been entered into the system is available immediately after the transaction has been saved. Everyone has access to the same data.

Q Who is client?A) SAP systems use the client concept to allow legally and financially independent entities to coexist in a system. R/3 transaction provides special functions for working with clients. Note that client names are always numeric. Clients can be used for separating data for multiple companies or multiple divisions or just created for testing a process or data load. A client is data separator Clients can be created, copied and deleted. Client 800 / 000 is called a template, other clients are defined by copying client 800 / 000

Q What is IDES?A) International for Educational Systems.

Q What is an ECC?A) It is an Enterprise Central Component of version 6. ECC 6.0(Enterprise Central Component) was launched in 2005 by SAP AG replacing R/3 Enterprise.

Q What is Password?A) After giving the user name a password should be given for authentication and once it is correct then only the user can go into the system screens.

Q Explain about the language?A) You can choose your choice language.. All the messages and information on the system will be displayed in the language chosen. Print documents, display text etc. Q What is Transaction?It is a screen or series of screens to create, display, or change data amphibians.

Q What is a Transaction code?A) Transaction code is unique identifier for each transaction that allows you to get to a transaction without going through the menu. A unique code that acts as a shortcut by fetching the desired screen/program/function to the User. The transaction code is to be put in the Command Field of SAP Easy Access screen.

Q What is an end user role? A) The work is assigned to each employee or set of activities used by the employee.

Q What is integration?A) It is a transaction that is completed in one module or process trigger transactions in other modules. Integration means a model data has to hit other modules. Say for example FI people will create company code, cost center, businesses area, and physical year variant and cost allowance, these have to reflecting in HR modules. It is called integration HR people will create wage types this wage type are linked with GL accounts through symbolic accounts. The SAP system is a fully-integrated system where activities in one area generate can access activities in another area.

Q What is navigation?A) Navigate is to learn how to navigate within SAP. Q What is a menu path? A) It is a sequence of menu selections that should be followed to get to a function or required screen.

Q What is a data?A) It is a piece of information, numbers or text. Information / data that has been collected and stored in the info type.

Q What is Configuration?A) Customization or configuration is executed by Consultant. It is a defined process of defining the solution on SAP system based on Business Blueprints. Customization is executed through Implementation Guide (IMG)

SAP NAVIGATIONHUMAN RESOURCESSCOPEThe scope of this course is limited to SAP system navigation and some basic features for using the system.THE SAP WINDOWThe SAP window is the user interface to the SAP System. The elements of a typical SAP window are shown below:

MENU BAR/TOOL BAR

The Menu Bar contains menu paths available for navigation from the current screen. The menu options vary according to screen or task. On the following screen, the available options include:

Menu Edit Favorites Extras System Help

To navigate a menu path, click on the desired option on the Menu Bar in order to view more menu options for that module area.

STANDARD TOOLBARThe standard toolbar, located just below the menu bar, contains buttons/icons for performing common actions such as Save, Enter, Back, Exit, Cancel, etc. The toolbar also contains the Command field (see white rectangular box in red circle below) where transaction codes can be entered.

If you are in a particular transaction and want to proceed to the next transaction without going back to the main menu, you can enter /n followed by the transaction code in the command field, then click .The functions that can be performed with the toolbar will be dependent upon where you are in a particular transaction. For example, notice in the toolbar below that the Save icon is grayed out; you would not be able to Save in this instance. Other buttons may be grayed out at any given time depending on where you are in a particular transaction (i.e., what screen you are on).A table summarizing the function of each button of the standard toolbar is presented on the next page. In addition, these buttons/icons are explained in further detail later in this course.

Layout menuAllows you to customize the display options.

FEATURES/PROCEDURESAfter logging on to SAP, the screen below is the first screen that will be displayed:

HOW TO DRILL DOWNWhen you logon to the SAP system, you will only be able to see a few choices, as shown on the screen below. In order to reach a specific transaction, such as hiring a new employee or entering time, you will need to drill down to the lowest level.Drilling down one level is achieved by clicking once on a right-pointing arrow. On the following screen Human Resources has been highlighted because that is the area where drill-down is required in order to reach the time entry screen. Click on the arrow next to Human Resources

The following window shows the screen that will be displayed after drilling down two levels (by clicking on the right pointing arrow twice), when starting from Human Resources:

Each transaction can have multiple levels. The lowest level is indicated by the cube symbol, shown below:

Drill down further, by clicking on each down arrow (as highlighted in the following figure) until you reach the lowest level (highlighted by the red circle):

The lowest level in this case is CAT2 Time Data field, highlighted below, where the "Time Entry" transaction can be executed. Double click on the CAT2 field highlighted in yellow.Clicking on the CAT2 field will take you to the following "Time Sheet Initial Screen" window:

This is the window where you will actually perform the entries required for the transaction (entering the time worked).

HOW TO ENTER A TRANSACTION CODE

A transaction code is a faster way that can be used to reach a transaction screen without using a menu path. It is typically a four digit, alphanumeric value that identifies a transaction, such as FB60, which is used for Entering a Vendor Invoice.

Once you have chosen the tab that corresponds to your desired search method, enter data in the fields to limit your search. You may complete all, some, or none of the fields. If no fields have been completed, the entire list of possible selections will be returned. In the example below, only employees with the last name Smith will be returned.Click the green check mark to execute the search. To cancel and close the pop-up window, click the blue X .Sample search results are shown below. When the desired item is located (Andrew), double-click it. Or highlight it by clicking on it once and then clicking the green check mark . If you are not satisfied with the search results, click the blue X to close the window.The result of either of the two methods above will be the entry field being populated with the selected data.

Using a Wild Card in the Field Entry SearchWhile conducting a field entry search, you can use an asterisk (*) as a wild card character to help expand the search. In the example below, the vendor number search is being limited to vendors within a zip code range. Instead of entering a complete five-digit zip code, only the first three digits were entered followed by the * wild card.

This will return all employees whose last name starts with the characters kh as shown below:
