SAP PS and cProject

Plese, could somebody explain to me what is the difference between PS module and cProject? Is it cProject substitution for PS, or it is just product with additional funcionalities regarding PS module?


Hi Ivan,

Project Management applications need to reflect the need for process methodologies with clear transitions from one phase to another, quality gates, handover meetings, milestones. CProjects support the above requirements through Stage-Gate methodology in project planning and Execution.

CProjects support collaborative phase-based processes especially in IT, R&D, and Professional Services.

cProjects is Web Based application. Collaboration is possible with external partners. Whereas Project System of R/3 can be used with in enterprise.

Project System offers project accounting and logistical capabilities and is primarily used for project manufacturing, utilities, and engineering & construction industries.

Integration scenarios between cProjects and Project System are possible.
