Common Q&A while using the Fix pace.



  1. How does Focused Build span across Charm?


Below are the phases and change types mentioned.


2. Can I use the Innovate, Enhance and Fix processes of charm in Fix pace?

No, only Innovate and fix is possible and the focused build should be above SPS04. For Enhance, it has to go through conventional charm.


 

3. What is the Difference between fix and Innovate?

Innovate is during implementation phase. Fix is post implementation, during hyper care phase. Fix uses approval of change manager as it occurs post go live. Innovate goes with a release in a bundle. However Innovate has its own approvals involving Release manager.

 

4. What is the best practice approach for fix pace?

Phase wise process given below below.


 

5. What all are the change transactions available in fix pace?

S1CR- Request for Change

S1HF- Urgent Change

S1SG- Standard Change

 

6. How does the entire process of Fix pace look like ?


 

7. Is the process of fix pace same as in charm?

It is slightly different.  In fix pace, CM validates and approves RFC and defines scope as Urgent change or standard change. Release manager imports into Prod system

 

8. How to access the Change management in Focused Build?

Enter via My Request for Change and the My Change Documents apps . Use the below option to enable them.


 

9. How to perform the landscape assignment in fix pace.

[DEV - QA - PRE] or [DEV - QA] assignment falls under Development branch.


 

10. Can we use the Fix pace as a standalone entity?

No, it is not possible. All the fragments of Focused Build methodology are inextricably linked. So we don’t have option to dissociate fix pace from the holistic approach.

 

We have just scratched the surface of fix pace to get the ball rolling. Hope the key factors should help you in comprehending the concept holistically and plan better while implementing the Charm via Focused Build.  Cheers!!

Hi,

thanks a lot for the interesting post.

One question: with which function of FB is the transition: Incident (e.g. SMIN) -> S1CR realised?
We don't have a follow-up functionality in UI5 as standard.

Thank you for your answer.

 

Kind Regards,

Sergey
