Dear Vivek,

Process Flow:

1. Configure application components in SAP Solution Manager.
In the Business Blueprint, transactions can already be assigned for process steps from the reference model. You can also assign transactions to any additional processes and steps you have defined, and thereby specify how your business processes are to run in the SAP system. Furthermore, you can also edit the Implementation Guide.

2. Use metadata (PI).
You specify the necessary metadata for your integration requirements, such as data types, message interfaces, mappings, and so on.

3. Configure integration scenario and integration process (PI).
You adapt the defined integration scenarios and integration processes to your specific system landscape. In doing so, you specify, for example, collaboration profiles (communication party, service and communication channel). You can use wizards for the configuration.


used for business process:

1. BPM

2. ARIS etc.

Business Process Management with SAP NetWeaver and ARIS for SAP NetWeaver provides procedure models, methods, technologies and reference content for modeling, configuring, executing and monitoring these business processes.

Process Modeling

A process model is an abstraction of a process and describes all the aspects of the process:

· Activities: steps that are executed within the process

· Roles: users or systems that execute the activities

· Artifacts: objects, such as business documents, for example, that are processed by the process

Processes within a company can be modeled on multiple abstraction levels and from numerous different viewpoints. To implement and utilize innovative processes and strategies successfully, you must convert business process views into technical views and relate both views. Typically, different individuals or departments within a company are responsible for modeling processes from the business and technical perspectives. A deciding factor for the success of business process modeling is, therefore, that all those involved have a common understanding of the business processes and “speak the same language”.

Business Process Management in SAP NetWeaver provides a common methodology for all levels of process modeling. This common methodology forms a common reference framework for all project participants and links models for multiple abstraction levels:

· Business process models describe the process map and process architecture of a company – from value chain diagrams and event-driven process chains, right up to end-to-end processes.

· Process configuration models support the process-driven configuration and implementation of processes.

· Process execution models support service-based process execution.

Dear Vivek,

<b>AcceleratedSAP (ASAP)</b> is SAP's standard implementation methodology. It contains the Roadmap, a step-by-step guide that incorporates experience from many years of implementing R/3. Along with that, AcceleratedSAP contains a multitude of tools, accelerators and useful information to assist all team members in implementing R/3. Quality checks are incorporated at the end of each phase to easily monitor deliverables and critical success factors. ASAP is delivered as a PC-based package, so that - if required - an implementation project can begin prior to having an R/3 System installed.

AcceleratedSAP (ASAP): A comprehensive solution for the introduction of the R/3 System in your enterprise. ASAP and most of its tools can be used independently of an R/3 installation.

The tools available for AcceleratedSAP are:

The <b>Project Estimator</b>, an internal SAP tool which enables SAP consultants to accurately gauge the required resources, the costs and the time frame of implementation. The Project Estimator takes into account the project scope and several project and risk factors.

The <b>Concept Check Tool</b>, a tool enabling you to carry out quality checks on the project preparation, technical infrastructure and R/3 configuration settings. This is done mainly during the first two implementation phases of the R/3 project. In this way you are alerted to potential data volume and configuration conflicts that could lead to performance issues if not addressed.

The <b>Implementation Assistant</b>: The ASAP navigation tool that accompanies you through the five phases of implementation down to the task level. It includes a description and a detailed "how-to" for each task in the Roadmap. Along with that, many tools, templates and documents are hyperlinked to the task. The Implementation Assistant contains the following elements:

<b>ASAP Implementation Roadmap</b> and <b>Project Plan</b>. The Roadmap contains the five phases, from which you can drill down into work packages, activities and tasks. The Project Plan contains three components, a budget plan, a resource plan and a work plan. These are explained in more detail in the next chapter.

The ASAP Roadmap is the successor of the R/3-based Procedure Model, which was used until Rel. 3.1 in R/3 implementation projects.

<b>Knowledge Corner</b>, containing tips and tricks for configuration from consultants, detailed documentation on SAP’s implementation services, information on technical tools, as well as simplification guidebooks and R/3 Customizing wizards.

<b>Question and Answer Database (Q&Adb)</b>. Using the R/3 Reference Model structure, the Q&Adb is used to assist in gathering requirements for business processes, conversions, reports, interfaces, enhancements and authorizations. The database provides useful questionnaires to help you define the process needs and also serves as a repository for all this information. Since it is a database, it allows for flexible reporting. The business requirements generated from the Q&Adb are collectively known as the Business Blueprint.

<b>Business Process Master List</b>, to manage configuration, testing and the creation of end user documentation. The Business Process Master List is linked to pre-written Business Process Procedures (BPPs), detailled end-user documentation for R/3 transactions.

<b>Issues Database</b>: supporting project management, this database supports the entering, monitoring and managing of issues that come up during the project.


Accelerated SAP:

Phase 1 : Project preparation

Phase 2 : Business Blueprint

Phase 3: Realization

Phase 4 : Final Preparation

Phase 5 : Go Live and Support

Phase 3 - Realization - Master Lists - Define business scenarios and R/3 transactions to be realized in the system. BPP - Business Process Procedures representing R/3 transactions; used for unit testing & documentation. Planning - Defines how the configuration will be done and how it will be tested.

Hi Naveen,

I have clarification between BPM and SOA and ASAP

My understanding is

BPM - Business Process Managment Used For Technical Architure(Data Modelling)

SOA - No Idea(Source Oriented Architecture)

ASAP - Accelerated SAP - This Used only for Customization in SAP (Configuration) or for Total Project it can be used.

May be my question be silly, because of Lack of experience.

Expecting your reply.
