HI

Product: Represents a collection of all versions of a product. A product is a unit that can be delivered, is visible to the customer, and that is installable and renewable. In an SAP environment, a product corresponds to an SAP technical component.

A software product (such as SAP R/3) may exist in multiple versions (such as 4.6c, 4.6d, and 4.7)

A Software Product is composed of one or more software components. For instance, the product R/3 version 4.6C has components:

SAP BASIS

SAP APPL

Software Component: Represents a collection of all versions of a software component. Software components represent the reusable modules of a product. They can be upgraded or have patches installed.

A software component is a unit of software delivery that has its own support package track. Examples of Software Components are SAP_APPL, SAP_ABA, SAP_HR, etc.

Software components combine components (DCs) to larger units for delivery and deployment.

u2022 Every top-level component must be assigned to exactly one software component.

u2022 Child components always belong to the same software component as their parent.

u2022 Software components cannot be nested into each other.

Hi

We have Software Product to keep Software Component Version in it.

And Software Component Version is used to keep Design objects in it.

You can have different Software Product to hold development for different-different customers.

And Software Component version is specific to development.

Hi Suresh,

Products hold the s/w components and s/w components hold all the process related objects(design objects defined in IR).They are required for transportation.
