ASAP Methodology

The ASAP methodology is recommended by SAP for implementation planning and system implementation. It has the following phases. Project Preparation - The primary focus of Phase 1 is getting the project started, identifying team members and developing a high-level plan. Business Blueprint - The primary focus of Phase 2 is to understand the business goals of the company and to determine the business requirements needed to support those goals. Realization - The purpose of this phase is to implement all the business and process requirements based on the Business Blueprint. You customize the system step by step in two work packages, Baseline and Final configuration. Final Preparation - The purpose of this phase is to complete testing, end-user training, system management and cut over activities. Critical open issues are resolved. Upon the successful completion of this phase, you will be ready to run your business in your productive R/3 system. Go Live and Support - Transition from a project oriented, pre-productive environment to a successful and live productive operation. Def. The Accelerated SAP is the implementation solution provided by SAP which integrates several components that work in conjunction to support the rapid and efficient implementation of the PROJECT.
