hi..welcome to sdn...

SAP follows ASAP methodology to make the project implementation.

a)Project Preparation


c)Realization / Fit-gap analysis


e)Go-live / Production

Generally in project preparation top management / PM will discuss with the client regarding the business integration n pros n cons of implementation.

Blue print contains all the functional specs related to the project.

Realization is the place where u actually implement and provide solutions , like activation of Business content objects etc.

Pre-production is the place where u will test the project .

Go-live means actual production and u will support the issues hereafter.

Normally u will involve in the realization phase .

this thread will be useful for u:

clarify these

When u r working on the bw implementation depends upon u r experience task will be assigned to you.

Generally any sap implementation have same phases above what kalyan mention but it will vary from client to client.

Before going to u r task u need to understand the application(business process) of u r client according to that u need to configure or create or activate the objects.

once these objects completed in the development server u need to transport into quality server then u need to send into production server there u need to check whether objects r working according to u r client requirement.

Entire process will take some more time

Full Life Cycle - It has the scope, requirement analysis, coding/development, testing, go-live... Full life cycle of a project...

End-to-End Implementation - We will take an example that we want to implement the entire NetWeaver 2004s... From extraction to reporting to broadcasting etc.,

end to end impl:

1. AS IS process

2. To be process mapping

3. customizaiton in SAP + devepment

4. Unit testing

5. Full testing

6. End-user training

7. Go-live

8. Support for initial month-ends.

9. Ongoing support

End to End Implementation (SAP Life Cycle)

full impl:

1 Project Preparation / Requirement Gathering

2 Business Blueprint

3 Realization

4 Final Preparation

5 GO Live & Support

BW Implementation

Below steps are the the high level plan for the BW implementation

If it is End to End Implementation Project , You will be involved in all Phases

1. AS IS process - Study of the existing process.

2. To do process mapping - What will be the new process.

3. customizaiton in SAP & query development - Customizing the cubes and ODS,Reports

4. Unit testing - Testing of each and every module and reports

5. Full testing - Full system testing. In this step all steps are integrated so, it is also known as Integration testing.

6. End-user training - Training for the Power user (first line users) by the SAP Consultants. They will in turn train to other users.

7. Go-live

8. Support for initial month-ends. -

9. Post implementation support....

Full Life cycle

1.Project Prepararion

2. Blue Print

3. Project Preparation

4. Final Preparation

5. Go live & Support
