Dear Sai,

The SAP Solution Manager supports you throughout the entire lifecycle of your solutions, from the Business Blueprint thru configuration to production operation. It provides central access to tools methods and preconfigured content, that you can use during the evaluation, implementation, and productive operation of your systems.

You can use the SAP Solution Manager to evaluate and implement your solution.

You create a solution with the SAP Solution Manager, which serves as a template for your implementation project. The solution contains a package of reusable preconfigured content (documentation, preconfiguration, and test cases). The following section only describes the typical process flow of an implementation project.

Process Flow:

1. The Roadmaps contain information and procedures for all phases of your project.

In the SAP Solution Manager, you use the functionality of the Knowledge Warehouse that is delivered with the SAP Web Application Server. The SAP Solution Manager will also work if you have already installed a version of the Knowledge Warehouse. However, this is not a prerequisite for use of the SAP Solution Manager.

2. Your work with the SAP Solution Manager really begins after the evaluation phase. The first step is to define your project in the Solution Manager:

a. You enter administrative data in the Project Administration transaction, for example, details of project dates and resources.

b. Specify the Project Scope.

c. Define the System Landscape for the implementation of your solution.

3. You define a Business Blueprint by documenting the organizational units, master data, business scenarios and business processes you require for the implementation of your solution. During the Business Blueprint definition, you read the documentation supplied by SAP and partners, create your own project documentation, and assign individual process steps to transactions.

4. From the Solution Manager, Configure your business scenarios in the development systems.

5. You check the test cases delivered with your solution and assign further Test cases to processes and process steps.

6. You perform consistency checks for the customizing of your business processes mit dem Customizing Scout, i.e. you check whether the Customizing is the same in the various application components. You synchronize customizing with the Customizing Distribution.

7. You can organize tests. You can reuse the test cases selected during configuration.

8. You create training material and learning maps (computer-supported self-learning courses) to train the end users.

Dear Sai,

Define your project in the Solution Manager:

a. You enter administrative data in the Project Administration transaction, for example, details of project dates and resources.

b. Specify the Project Scope.

c. Define the System Landscape for the implementation of your solution.


This project step configures the process requirements specified in the Business Blueprint phase, in the system.

If you use objects from the Business Process Repository in your structures, they may already be assigned to transactions and BC Sets. If you create structures without Business Process Repository objects, you can assign transactions in the Business Blueprint transaction. You can assign BC Sets, IMG objects and test cases in the Configuration transaction.

This project task comprises the following steps:

· Assign Transactions/Programs

You can call assigned transactions, add new ones or remove superfluous ones from the project scope, in the Transactions tab.

You can assign transactions, programs, or other objects to a structure element, in the Transactions tab. This enables you to access and execute these transactions, programs, and objects. These are also the default objects when you create a test plan in the realization phase.

You can also assign a default transaction for a structure element on the Transactions tab. To call the default transaction, choose the Execute symbol next to the structure element in the reference structure.

· Assign/Edit BC Sets

You can assign BC Sets to project steps, display the contents of the assigned BC Sets and delete superfluous BC Sets from the project scope, in the Configuration tab.

You can activate one BC Set or all BC Sets assigned to a process.

You can create new BC Sets for project or company-specific settings, which you e.g. want to use in a group rollout or to create your own solution, in the application system, and assign them in the Solution Manager.

· Assign/Edit IMG

You can assign IMG objects to the project steps. You can display and edit these settings, and the settings made by BC Sets, in the IMG.

· Edit Test Cases

You can make initial function tests after the configuration. You can also run CATTs to see how a transaction works. You can also create test cases.

· You document the settings relevant for the configuration along the project structure, in the Project Documentation.

· Create/change problem messages in the Messages Tab

1. Cross-Scenario Configuration:
a. Create a configuration structure for the basic settings of your solutions, e.g. for SAP CRM 3.1, under Configuration in the business process structure.
b. Configure these basic settings.

2. Configure your business scenarios under Business Scenarios in the business process structure, e.g. for the scenario E-Selling.

Issue Tracking


Issue tracking is an interface between your support organization and SAP support. SAP support staff can coordinate the cooperation between you and SAP support, with this function, for example by proposing solutions for problems.

1. You or SAP Support identify a problem in your solution which requires action (issue).

2. You or SAP Support create a new issue from a service, in the SAP Solution Manager Issue Tracking. The SAP Support enters a recommendation to SAP Support Services.

3. You contact SAP, and request a Support Service which solves it. The link between the issue and service is retained.

4. SAP support or the support team perform the service for your solution landscape at your site, or remotely.

5. While performing the service, SAP Support updates the problem information in the Issue Tracking.

6. You can analyze open issues.

7. Implement the recommendations for the problems.

8. Update the issue status in the SAP Solution Manager, and close it.
