Sandy, Congratulations! Firstly, you need to understand what a BBP is... I am sure you know about it. Yet, let me explain. You are basically documenting the current Business Processes of your client organisation and alongside you are providing the SAP Business processes. It's called the process mapping. The first requirement is: Your Client will give you the As-Is process docs which you will use to map SAP business process mapping for each of them. When you complete this exercise and prepare a fit-gap analysis and work around, your Business Blue print is ready. Then, you get it signed off from your client. Now, tell me how will anyone share this confidential document with you? If there are some folks ready to share with you, I consider you to be lucky. Account determination is an Integration point between FI and MM. You will work closely with FI as they are the owners for General Ledger a/c.(OBYC) This is not a great deal... Approach towards MM configuration: 1. Firstly, Org structure finalisation 2. Enterprise Structure configuration 3. Other settings and configuration as per biz need. Hope this helps your understanding.

I don't think you should be taking up such role if you cannot do justice to do you bit and add value. client needs employer to employer automatic request mails for relese PO. only release with classifications is possible for purchasing documents. Infact. You can make separate release groups for separate purchasing documents. SAP advise with classifications.

And every project or project manager will have a different way of organizing the BBP and other documentation. I do recommend you have a following checklist when getting the requirement from your client during workshop discussion: A general view of designing an sap process : Input .com/groups/technical-functional/sap-log-mm/sap-mm-business-blue-print-2414500
. does the system allows for manual printing. MM (New)
yokeloonlo Replied May 20. Now tell me.A lot of times new consultants tend to forget the tinny-miny bits of the process every steps along the way.. especially when comes to the integration part between different organization units getting involved in a particular process. You would have often heard of bad design where issues prop up after goes live and need to be reverted to other out of the system process. There are also other document which is important like conversion strategy. Finance department may ask for control on approving of PR (i. for example. MRP controller. can be separated into several BBPs. PO auto fax doesnt work. but the mode of triggering the MRp part lies in the hand of production department. I was hired to be a SAP End User Support without any knowledge in SAP. but forgetting about those outside the box. After 2 years of Ends User Support. On that time.Process . BBP is important. and how to trigger the manual printing by the user. 2) When and how to implement the process . Consider my first step into SAP. inventory management as another depending on the documentation format. then Procurement as another. forms coversion) 1) What are the if and else . For e. 4) Current issues faced . workaround. After that the company gave me a chance to be part of the implementation project. I don't have any knowledge of how to create a business blue print so I also posted this question here 2 years ago. It takes time to learn to implement an SAP project. I assure you that problem will hit you if you have never thought this through and had to resort to changing the system configuration after go live
sap. BOM. user authorization ID. even though the content might not be far better off. You can have organization design as one BBP. You need to think clearly about when the system doesnt work properly.is there a timeline and a process during the go live New to Toolbox? (actual business run) when should be the first transaction to occur. rather than just blindly following a sample of BBP.Output In getting the input: 1) Why needed . I got a reviewer for SAP MM and reviewed for 1 year and take the exam and passed. so who own the sap in this case. for example. report. You may Ask A Question Join think this is part of cutover plan.. This will help you in laying down the foundation of the design on the "To-Be" process. going through various stages of the project methodology. enhancement.what is the benefit of switching the current legacy/manual process to the SAP process? A consultant worth lies in the way to convince the client what good is the changes bring to what the client is currently doing. on the backup plan for each step of the process. Do i deserve to fail? Regards. No. but for Sandy. I say this because maintenance effort of the sap parameters such as material master. In 3 months time all I did is to test myself in creating the MM Cycle (PR to VIV) over and over again. Everyone start from scratch.g. 3) Who ask for it/who and who is getting involved .e. release startegy) for MRP stock material but the production department head may have another opinion about it. then after 3 months the company deploy me to the plant. PR can be raised via manual for non-stock and also automatically via MRP for stock.the frequency of what is happening. For example. can also be a effort to handle with if not stated clearly in the BBP. You need to tackle several parties in the designing stage rather than just purely looking at a sample BBP. you do not deserve to fail.often people tend tothink about the design inside the box. as seem likely PR is a general process own by the procurement department. depending on how the project manager liking. Process (can be standard process.This is different from who own it. I think the more important thing.5/29/12
SAP MM Business Blue Print . Even SAP academy course does not teach you in full in how to implement a project. 2) Who own the process .Toolbox for IT Groups
Well for those who have doubt at sandy.ittoolbox. 2009
Hi MM (New)/ And for Sandy. A BBP.
Inder Singh Replied May 21.
sap. not just being a consultant Yours faithfully.5/29/12
SAP MM Business Blue Print . often being neglected is the step by step outside of the system and leave the client to figure out themselves what to do with it. No BBP should not incorporate aspects. Put yourself as the end user. month/year end activities? Thanks Sanjay
babu1972 Replied May 22. as a consultant. then these Z or Y programs will be addressed. you should stated clearly in BBP if possible. who get notify and how to get notified in using this report. but not stated what clearly is changed from "As is" to "To Be". as well as project management and also involved in fail projects. so who owns this report. who and how will this be audited? Again there will be lot of dependencies. at least the high level plan is or state how you going to formulate the plan These are a few pointers to look at for a thorough design of BBP. or project who does not have business process re-engineering steps going along with SAP implementation. and subsequently move to consulting. Client pays to have a "consultant" to tell them what need to be done. 2) What is the extent of impact to the business? 3) What has been changed? Gap fit analysis in most of the BBP only details what the system cannot do and what are the enhancement/ workaround. whether at the beginning or during post implementation. 2009
Thanks Yok. and what are the steps on other legacy system. support. Should we give the time line for each tasks that we do? Any buffers accounted? in case.ittoolbox. what are the steps outside the system. hands on. scheduling for month/year to the end users. 3. who owns the next step. No. I came from an end user environment. Output 1) Impact who? Who is being impacted across the board with the new process. not a "half-consultant" to tell only a portion. This often not answered in a lot of BBP unless a change management program is in but giving a half picuture in the BBP will not help the client to get the total picture. Should the BBP containt he Z or Y program list that we will be building for the clients? 2. Defnitely time has be given for each and every task and once the Realization Phase has completed. Good comments for those who wants to be a good consultant.com/groups/technical-functional/sap-log-mm/sap-mm-business-blue-print-2414500
. 4) What roles been changed/deleted/moved? If there is a new report needed. 1. etc. A lot of BBP does not give the full end to end process these days but rather sap only steps. A table in BBP is good to show the comparison and I do include it in most my BBP so that the client understand the changes in one document. 3) What is the step inside the sap system. 2009
Dear Yokeloonlo I have a few questions 1. and that where a consultant worth is. This often missing in a lot of BBP 5)Does the new process impact other existing sap process as well (for a sap enhancement project or extension project)? 6)How to ensure end user will adopt to this? This often leave it to the change management to do it? But for a sap project where there is no change management. like scheduling. in an end-to-end process? For those new consultant. Should the BBP incorporate end user aspects. who should generate this report and what steps to be taken after generating this report in improving the business operation. 3. 2009
Hi. BBP doesnot contains Z or Y programs 2. Inder
Sanjay Replied May 22. if we mention time.Toolbox for IT Groups
because thorough consideration has not been given during the design. rather than go to several sources on their own to understand the change while reading the BBP.
