Where do we integrate with ABAPers in Output in real time scenarios ?
What are functional specification collect from the client and tell ABAPers to
configure it? Kindly help me with answers.

Looks like you have got trained in SAP & preparing for interviews. Here is the anwser.
After you get the requirements ffrom the client, you will do the analysis as to how you are going to fulfill the business requirements. Then you will prepare the the design giving the details what configs or developments you will make to fulfill the requirements.
When there is an ABAP development required, you will give the functional specs (specifications) to the ABAPer. In the specs you will clearly mention what is the requirement, what development is required, what ABAP prog has to be modified or created & you will also give the field mappings. Basing on the specs, ABAPer will do the development.
For eg: You have a requirement to create a new O/p type that triggers after PGI. You will 1st decide how the output should look like. Then you will decide what details should go into the printout. Then you will give the field mappings of all the details. Basing on these details, ABAPer will design the form layout. Using the field mappings you have given he will write the code to pull the data from those fields. Then he will write the O/p control program passing all the input values to trigger it after the delivery is PGI'ed.
In the O/p determination procedure, in the requirement routine you will have to write a code sothat the O/p is triggered after the PGI. So ABAPer will code that routine using the routines in VOFM. Then you will assign that requirement routine in determination procredure.
This is how it goes. Hope this clarifies. Good Luck.
