Engineer-to-Order: Project Planning and Scheduling - Installation Guide
This document provides you with the information you need to set up your business scenario. It forms the backbone of the installation documentation, because it summarizes which building blocks you need to implement for this scenario, and in what sequence.
Always use the scenario installation guide (this document) as the starting point for all your configuration activities.
For a successful installation of the entire scenario, it is important that:
You follow the building block sequence in the scenario installation guide
You carry out all required configuration activities for one building block before you move to the next.
1.1 System Requirements
To implement this scenario, the following systems are required and must be installed:
SAP R/3 4.7
SAP SCM 4.1 (full version)
For a detailed description of the various software components (SAP_BASIS, ), their releases and support package levels, refer to the System Requirements for the document SAP Best Practices for SCM 4.1 Scenarios, which you can find on the SAP Best Practices for SCM CD.
Installation Considerations and Options
The scenario Engineer-to-Order: Project Planning and Scheduling is made up of the following building blocks:
PS Integration Production Planning
Detailed SchedulingThis scenario demonstrates one way of using the building blocks listed above. You can also use these building blocks in different combinations for other scenarios or scenario variants, using this scenario as a reference.
Furthermore, we assume that the products used here are produced in a project driven manufacturing process, which has been defined by the SAP in production module. The major focus is on the capacity leveling. 2 Preparation
The following chapter provides a general description of the building block concept and tells you how to work with the Best Practices documentation.
The Prerequisites section contains important scenario-specific information and lists the SAP Notes that you have to implement in your system. In this section, you can also find some master data considerations.
2.1.1 Essential Information
Read the section Essential Information in full to learn how to install an SAP Best Practices for SCM scenario.
The following section describes
the building block concept
how to use the SAP Best Practices documentation
how to upload user roles required for the installation or testing purposes
We recommend that you read the entire section to ensure the successful installation of a scenario.
22.214.171.124 Building Blocks: Concept
The building block concept offers substantial benefits to SAP business partners with respect to the development, distribution, and sale of solutions.
Are reusable, business process-oriented, preconfiguration units, which you simply have to assemble to obtain your desired installation.
Can be used flexibly as the basis for many vertical solutions.
Vary in size and content. Some building blocks cover only a small range of very specific, scenario pre-configuration, whereas others cover complex, generic pre-configuration that can be used in many solutions. These generic building blocks help to reduce redundancy.
Enable SAP business partners to focus on the development of the specific vertical configuration requirements of each customer.
126.96.36.199 Building Blocks: Installation
To install SAP Best Practices using building blocks, you install a number of building blocks in a predefined sequence using the various tools and documentation provided.
The number and sequence of the building blocks depends on what you are installing.
The configuration guides and configuration roles guide you through the installation.
Each building block has its own configuration role and configuration guide. The role has to be uploaded into the system from the documentation CD. The configuration guide is available on the documentation CD.
To perform the configuration activities for a building block in the system, you follow the configuration role you have uploaded reading the description of the corresponding steps in the configuration guide.
After installation, you can test the whole scenario using the document known as the business process procedure (BPP). This document is also available on the documentation CD.
188.8.131.52 Installation Options
You can implement an entire SAP Best Practices scenario or install individual building blocks to configure your own scenario or to enhance an existing installation.
Option A: Scenario Installation
The installation of an entire business scenario is the standard installation procedure.
The scenario installation guide is the central document for installing a business scenario and describes
which building blocks are required for the scenario
the installation sequence for these building blocks
the scope of the implementation activities for each b
