Links and Videos

On the Discover tab, we've added links to the Enterprise Product Development spaces in the SAP Community and the SAP Roadmap and to product videos on YouTube. But you don't have to leave the SAP Help Portal to find video-based content. When you're in the Administration Guide or a User Guide and see an image like this in a guide, you know that a short explanatory video is waiting for you. See this example: Create a Configuration Plan.


How to Write a Configuration Plan


Here are direct links to the other documents that we offer for SAP Enterprise Product Development to help you out:

o   Collaboration: The Collaboration capability of SAP Enterprise Product Development lets you instantly collaborate with participants, within and outside your organization, to accelerate product innovation.

o   Common Functions: You can customize different teams of users, add or remove users from the teams, and manage capability rules with the Manage Teams app.

o   Configuration Management: Configuration experts can set up configuration plans and create baselines to demonstrate the consistency of a product throughout its lifecycle.

o   Connected Products: Provides real-time monitoring of products and faster product design based on actual data. An IoT-enabled engineering model of a physical product is connected via sensors. OEMs create connected product models. Operators can then subscribe to the models (Digital-Product-as-a-Service) and use insights from the models for predictive maintenance.

  • With the Requirements Acquisition apps, you have a streamlined process for collecting and analyzing customer requirements.

  • With the Test Management apps, you can plan, execute, monitor, and analyze the testing projects for your product prototype.


o   Enterprise Product Structure: This new capability lets you search for products, BOMs, and product structures to view product data and its BOM components and structures. Additionally, it synchronizes products, BOMs, and related product data from SAP S/4HANA systems.

o   Product Innovation Management: A capability that provides a streamlined process for incubating innovation, from initiating an idea campaign to evaluating and picking promising ideas that can bring benefit.

o   Insights: The Insights capability for SAP Enterprise Product Development enables you to analyze product-related information more easily.

  • Intelligent Handover: Designed for production engineers, the Intelligent Handover capability in SAP Enterprise Product Development bridges the gap in the design-to-operate phase in the product lifecycle management (PLM).


o   Specification Management: For managing specifications in a central repository. It provides a single source of truth for product-, raw material-, and packaging-related data.
