I am wondering if you can provide me a set of standard SAP question with regards to EHS project implementation?
I notice that there are some standard project implementation on module MM and SD in the internet, however there seem zero on EHS module.
Thus, I am wondering if you can provide me some of the basic and standard questions which we have to know to check with our business user in this area?
I am not sure of the standard set of questions for EH&S business scenarios. But, alternatively you may ask any organization for available business processes under their EH&S management. Following are the classification of the important EH&S business processes as per the best business practices. Hence, to start with (even before going to the level of specific questions if at all you can finally compile them), in my opinion one should ask for the relevance of following businesses to any organization. Once following is answered, one should get first hand idea of the EH&S business and the amount of effort it would take to replicate it in SAP EH&S.
Main Process Sub Process description
Maintaining and updating substance data
Creating and releasing Safety Data Sheets
Carrying out dangerous goods check
Dangerous goods master
Check for DG relavent for Materials
Industrial Hygiene and safety
Defining work areas
"Integration of storage locations for
hazardous substance register"
Maintaining exposure profiles
Defining safety measures
Create Injury/Illness log
Edit Accident / Incident Log
Assignment of Person to Health centre
Assign protocols to Persons
Medical Serive for Persons with Protocol
Medical Servive appointments
Create entry document
Create purchase order
Create disposal document
Hazardous substance Management
Display hazardous substance
"Determine and report hazardous
Global Label Management
Label data in Material master
Customer specific labels
Hope above classification helps.
first you need to specify which EH&S submodule you would like to install/use. Generally of interest are:
EH&S PS (ProductSafety)
EH&S DG (Dangerous Goods)
Furthermore you could use e.g. BOMBOS interface, Substance Volume Tracking etc. SAP has prepared this ordering in their online help:
EHS-BD => a must to use EH&S
EHS-SAF => corresponds to PS
EHS-HSM => an add on to handle PS topics in logistic
EHS-DGP => DG
EHS-WA => Waste
EHS-HEA => Occupational Health
EHS-IHS => industrial Hyiene
You will more information here using the links regarding other "submodules" like GLM (Global Label Managment) or SVT.
Using the following linke tyou wil get an "rough" overvierw which SAP module need to be checked during an EH&S installation:
Based on the business decisions you have to check which integration to which other SAP module must be checked. At least MM and SD are relevant in most scenarios (as well as CA-CL and CA-DMS)
Conclusion: no easy answer exist to your question.
With Best regards
