Transport landscape best practise

Former Member

I'm wondering if SAP has a best practise document on transport landscape planning.

SAP Help has pretty clear description about a standard 3 system landscape. But not document is found describing complext transport landscape considerations --- multiple ABAP development/test systems, conflict resolution between project landscape and maintenance landscape.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

we think that i we use " The TMS Quality Assurance Approval Procedure" we can not assure that all request that was imported in QAS system will be imported in production system, all in the same order that was imported in QAS system.

In relation with the best practices, we consult with SAP about our doubs about TMS, and they advise us a support service called:




the content of this service is:
