Relation between template, roadmap and BPR

Hi

A very rudimentary question: what is the relation between the template selection and roadmap in the SOLAR_Project_admin and BPR selection in SOLAR01? is there any dependencies between these three?

why do we actually need template and roadmaps?

and does these have any dependency on the system landscape?

Thanks

Hi Drake,

what is the relation between the template selection and roadmap in the SOLAR_Project_admin and BPR selection in SOLAR01?

Template Selection is provided so that you can choose specific Scenarios from any Template that's created and made Public in your SolMan instance. Of course, this is a deeper topic to explain in just one post. Suffice to say here that if your project does not use a 'Global Rollout' kind Template Project, based on which Implementation Projects (Rollouts) have to choose necessary content, you don't have to worry about this Tab.

Another reason why you may ever want to get into this Tab is when you want to 'install' some Best Practice content from SAP, and pick some 'Scenarios' from them. Example - BP_UTUS147 - Best Practices for Water Utility may offer 7 Scenarios to choose from. Well, this is something that's available only if the BP content is installed first.

Summary: You can ignore this tab if none of the above applies to you.

is there any dependencies between these three?

Template is not related with BPR.

BPR comes from the Software Component ST-ICO and whenever that Release/Package level goes up, you'll see enhanced content.

Again, Roadmap is not related with either Template or BPR

why do we actually need template and roadmaps?

Templates - I have explained above

Roadmaps - Though it's usage is optional, you can use it if there is not other specific Project methodology for you to follow. It comes with lots of 'accelerators' for running the project.

and does these have any dependency on the system landscape?

Project System Landscape is what you define as applicable to your specific project in question.

Roadmap & Template Tab do not have any impact on it nor are they impacted directly.

Yes, BPR is impacted by the fact that, if there are processes that happens in a set of Logical Components, and if you didnt have any one of them in your Sys Landscape, it will offer you the choice to 'retrospectively' push them into your Project Sys Landscape from SOLAR01.

Summary: Sys Landscape is what you choose from, reflecting the Logical Components that are actually used. If at any time you have to add one or more later, you can do so. No impact on Roadmap/ Template.

Regards,

Srini
