SAP, started in 1972 by five former IBM employees in Mannheim, Germany, states that it is the world's third-largest independent software vendor. The original name for SAP was German: Systeme, Anwendungen, Produkte. It means "Systems Applications and Products." The goal of the company was to provide large enterprise customers with the ability to interact with a corporate database in real-time. Today, the company states that its goal is "to offer the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of business performance and optimization solutions for companies of all sizes." SAP's first software application was a financial accounting software suite that ran on a mainframe and was known for its stability. It eventually became known as the R/1 system. The "R" stands for real-time. During the 1980s, the company went international, and the second iteration of the R system (R/2) accommodated different languages and currencies. In the 1990s, the third iteration (R/3) moved from the mainframe to a client/server three-tier architecture composed of a database, software applications and a common graphical user interface (GUI). SAP used the name R/3 until the 5.0 release. At that time the name was changed from R/version to ERP Central Component (ECC). The most current version as of November 2009 is ECC 6.0. When the Internet became pervasive, SAP responded by providing companies with the software they needed to sell goods and services online. Their product portfolio got a Web interface and was rebranded MySAP.com. MySAP was designed to be a corporate Web portal with role-based permissions for employees . The company promoted how SAP "solutions" could link commerce conducted over the Internet (e-commerce) with traditional bricks and mortar commerce to provide one seamless view of the business. Next came SAP NetWeaver, the companyÂśs development and integration platform and middleware component, and Business Suite, a bundling of SAPÂśs enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM), product lifecycle management (PLM) and supplier relationship management (SRM) applications. In 2008, SAP purchased Business Objects, a French enterprise software company that specializes in business intelligence (BI), which marked
a major change in the company¶s BI strategy, which was previously focused around SAP's Business Explorer tools. Current products include: SAP NetWeaver - service-oriented technology platform (SOA) for integrating information and business processes across diverse technologies and organizational structures. NetWeaver provides the foundation for other SAP software bundles. SAP Business Suite - software applications for large organizations and international corporations. The applications support core business operations such as supply chain managment, warehouse management, sales, customer relationship management and administrative functions. SAP offers software for 25 vertical industries, including banking, insurance, chemicals, healthcare, retail and consumer products. SAP Business All-in-One solutions, SAP Business ByDesign and SAP Business One - software products that address the needs of small and mid-market companies.
- ! ",.,!" c /0!+* ,!122# #, Technology playing a major role in today's business environment. So many companies and corporations have adopted information technology on a large scale by using Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to accomplish their business transaction and data processing needs. And in this technology SAP R/3 plays a significant role when compared with other similar tools. ERP system takes a lead role because of some of the following reasons Many large corporations use several different and separate information systems, often because they have merged with and/or acquired other companies with varied systems. An ERP system integrates these separate information systems and results in improved data reliability and processing efficiency. ERP systems are not only used by large corporations but becoming popular with small to mid-sized companies also. Simplify business transaction processing and thus work load is reduced.
- ! ", !, - ! ",. c c - ! ", 34!" ! Integration can be the highest benefit of them all. The only real project aim for implementing ERP is reducing data redundancy and redundant data entry. If this is set as a goal, to automate inventory posting to G/L, then it might be a successful project. Those companies where integration is not so important or even dangerous tend to have a hard time with ERP. ERP does not improve the individual efficiency of users, so if they expect it, it will be a big disappointment. ERP improves the cooperation of users. [4..+!+ Generally, ERP software focuses on integration and tend to not care about the daily needs of people. I think individual efficiency can suffer by implementing ERP. the big question with ERP is whether the benefit of integration and cooperation can make up for the loss in personal efficiency or not. 04,+! It reduces cost only if the company took accounting and reporting seriously even before implementation and had put a lot of manual effort in it. If they didn't care about it, if they just did some simple accounting to fill mandatory statements and if internal reporting did not exists of has not been fincancially-oriented, then no cost is reduced. -4 ,,*,!!# Same as above. Less reporting or accounting personnel, but more sales assistants etc. 54 ++ + No. People are accurate, not software. What ERP does is makes the lives of inaccurate people or organization a complete hell and maybe forces them to be accurate (which means hiring more people or distributing work better), or it falls. , - !

What exactly is SAP System Landscape? How does this phenomenon differ from SAP System Architecture? In this posting, I intend to answer the above mentioned, closely related questions in a very concise manner, with particular emphasis on the system landscape of SAP. Often times, SAP users, especially new comers misunderstands the two concepts.
The SAP architecture is typically the technology framework of the SAP system. SAP's architecture unlike the system landscape has changed over time (and more recently) with the advent of SAP ECC. In a priorposting, I "x-rayed" they system architecture of SAP R/3.
They system landscape basically is the set-up or arrangement of your SAP servers. Ideally, in an SAP environment, a three-system landscape exists. A three-system landscape consists of the Development Server-DEV, Quality Assurance Server-QAS and the Production Server-PROD. This kind of set-up is not primarily designed to serve as server clusters in case of system failure, the objective to enhance "configuration pipeline management".
*+ # c2<, !,+ * c Y-
At this juncture, it is important to state that a test system - Sandbox can also exit separately. The essence of the sandbox is to test the configuration of the business processes of a company, especially at the inception of the project (before the Business Blue Print is signed). It can also serve as a practice environment, even after go-live.
Pipeline is the environment where the configuration in the development system is moved to the quality assurance system and finally to the production system. The whole idea is to ensure that the configuration of these systems is in sync at any point in time. Suffice to say that, configuration/changes are first made in the Development system, thoroughly tested in the Quality Assurance system before been loaded into the production (Live) system.
This approach throws up the transport management system concept. Transport management system is the coordination of the movement of objects and configuration changes from the development system to the Quality Assurance system and then to the Production system. At times, this sequence of movement is not possible, especially in cases where an SAP note mandates that changes be made directly on the production system.
In such rare cases, objectively confirm that the change transport cannot be performed. Very likely, your system must have been configured to"not modifiable"(a system locking strategy that enforces the three-system landscape change transport rule); unlock the system by changing the global setting option to"modifiable"using transaction SE03. After you have done that, effect the change(s) on the system. Immediately lock the system back by changing the global setting option to"not modifiable"using transaction=0. Replicate the changes on the other system. Note that transaction-can also be used to lock the system so that client dependent and independent configuration changes are not carried out directly on the production system.
By and large, the SAP system landscape ensures that the integrity of data is enhanced via enforcing a controlled configuration changes effect on the target system - production. Previous Entry/Next Entry c Y
The implementation of your SAP System covers the following phases: c>+c* ! In this phase you plan your project and lay the foundations for successful implementation. It is at this stage that you make the strategic decisions crucial to your project: Define your project goals and objectives Clarify the scope of your implementation Define your project schedule, budget plan, and implementation sequence Establish the project organization and relevant committees and assign resources ,!,,#*! In this phase you create a blueprint using the Question & Answer database (Q&Adb), which documents your enterpriseÂśs requirements and establishes how your business processes and organizational structure are to be represented in the SAP System. You also refine the original project goals and objectives and revise the overall project schedule in this phase. #; ! In this phase, you configure the requirements contained in the Business Blueprint. Baseline configuration (major scope) is followed by final configuration (remaining scope), which can consist of up to four cycles. Other key focal areas of this phase are conducting integration tests and drawing up end user documentation.
! #c* ! In this phase you complete your preparations, including testing, end user training, system management, and cutover activities. You also need to resolve all open issues in this phase. At this stage you need to ensure that all the prerequisites for your system to go live have been fulfilled. & -?** In this phase you move from a pre-production environment to the live system. The most important elements include setting up production support, monitoring system transactions, and optimizing overall system performance. #!,.2!*,+ The enterprise structure consists of the following elements: #! R/3 System clients have an independent status both in legal and organizational terms. The clients within the system can be distinguished by a three-character, alpha-numeric code and are defined in Customizing. When your R/3 System is installed, it is set up with two clients: #!=== Client 000 is the SAP standard client. The SAP original system is held in this client. Client 000 contains default values for all tables. SAP updates the default values with every system upgrade and release upgrade.
You are !allowed to work in this client. #!==3 c YÂ?
The content of this client is the same as the 000 client. You can do your customizing in this client in order to adjust the standard system to your requirements. Clients are a technical structural feature of an R/3 system. The system makes a distinction between client-independent and client-dependent elements. Client-independent elements are objects that are used in all clients. Client-specific elements are objects that are only used in a specific client. The following objects are defined as client-independent: ^
data structures, such as field definitions, table structures, and file set-ups
The following objects are defined as client-dependent: ^
client-specific tables that must be copied from the original client, that is, client 000
HR master records
user master records
The following factors must be taken into consideration when you decide whether or not to create a client: ^
You have to adapt the system client-specifically to the enterprise structure.
You cannot access personnel data in other clients. Each clientÂśs personnel data is protected from unauthorized access.
You cannot perform reporting across all clients, and you cannot receive or assign clientindependent access authorizations.
You cannot exchange data between clients.
If an employee moves between two clients, you must assign him or her a new personnel number.
* !+ Within a client the company code represents the highest level of the enterprise structure. In Customizing, the company code is defined by a four-character, alpha-numeric code. If the Controlling, Financial Accounting, Materials Management or Sales and Distribution application components are set up in addition to the Personnel Administration component, you must set up the company code so that it also meets their requirements. This is not tantamount to a restriction: You define all of the HR SystemÂśs most important control data at the level of the personnel subareas, and these levels belong to Personnel Administration. In Personnel Administration, the company code has the following control functions: ^
The company code is used to generate default values for data entry, for example, an employeeÂśs payroll accounting area.
The company code is a selection criterion for reporting.
The company code constitutes an authorization check unit.
At the company code level, the following control features are assigned which are relevant for Personnel Administration: ^
the default country key for the employeeÂśs personal data, address data, and bank data.
a default value for the currency key for employeeÂśs basic pay.
a language code for text output, for example, employee remuneration information.
This language code is not the same as the logon language, which determines the language used in the on-line system. c,!!# Personnel areas divide a company code into sub-units. The individual personnel areas in a company code are defined in Customizing and have a four-digit alpha-numeric identifier. The personnel area has the following functions: ^
The personnel area is used to generate default values for data entry, for example, an employeeÂśs payroll accounting area.
The personnel area is a selection criterion for reporting.
The personnel area constitutes an authorization check unit.
c,!!#, Personnel subareas are a subdivision of the personnel area. Organizational control of the main HR subareas, namely the pay scale and wage type structures and work schedule planning, takes place at the personnel subarea level. In Customizing, the personnel subarea is defined by a fourcharacter, alpha-numeric code. The respective country-specific control features are stored here. The personnel subarea has the following organizational functions: ^
Specifying the country grouping; this controls the dialog for entering country-specific personnel data and the setting up and processing of wage types and pay scale groups in payroll accounting; within a company code, the country grouping must be unambiguous
Assigning a legal entity to differentiate between the individual companies from a legal point of view
It specifies groupings for Time Management. This enables you, for example, to set up work schedules, substitution types, absence types, and leave types on the basis of a specific personnel subarea.
The personnel subarea is a selection criterion for evaluations. c [
The personnel subarea is used to generate default values for pay scale area and pay scale type for an employeeÂśs basic pay.
It specifies the public holiday calendar.
Defining personnel subarea-specific wage types per personnel area
It assigns a legal person for payroll accounting.

centerprise structure is organizational structure that represents an enterprise in SAP R/3 system. It consists of some organizational units which, for legal reasons or for other specific business-related reasons or purposes, are grouped together. Organizational units include legal company entities, sales offices, profit centers, etc. Organizational units handle specific business functions.
We must set the enterprise structure correctly in the first place. The change of it usually requires a great effort and very time consuming. To set it up correctly we must have a comprehensive knowledge about the business processes and how to map it to SAP configuration.
A specific organizational unit is defined by a specific function or module in SAP. Company code is defined by FI module. Plant is defined by Logistics function. Storage Location and Purchasing Organization are defined by MM module. In SD module we have to define Sales Organization, Distribution Channel, and Division. We have an option whether to use Sales Office, Sales Group, and Sales Person or not. !*,,++!,,,..##1!"+*!!, Company ö

If your organization uses several +#!,, the companies which only appear as groupinternal business partners, and are not operational in each system, must be maintained in each client. This is a precondition for the account assignment of a group-internal trading partner.
Companies must be cataloged in a list of company IDs which is consistent across the group. The parent company usually provides this list of company IDs.
It is also acceptable to designate legally dependent branches 'companies' and join them together as a legal unit by consolidation.
) A Company Code is a unit included in the balance sheet of a legally-independent enterprise. Balance sheets and Profit and Loss statements, required by law, are created at company code level. The Company Code is the smallest organizational unit for which we can have an independent accounting department within external accounting, for example, a company within a corporate group (client). In SAP, a company code is represented by a unique 4-digit alpha-numeric for a specific client.

MATERIAL MASTER DATA Division is a field in the material master data (it can be input/edited on ³Basic Data 1´ view by MM01/MM02 t-code). That¶s why a material is always assigned to just one division. A material can be sold through one or more distribution channels in one or more sales organization. To allow it, we have to maintain the material master data for each combination of sales organization and distribution channel.
We can set different data of a material for each combination sales organization and distribution channel, such as: ³minimal order quantity´ and ³minimal delivery quantity´ data. By doing so, for example, a material must be ordered by customer minimal 1000 PC for wholesale channel and 10 PC for retail channel (assumed we only have one sales organization).

CUSTOMER MASTER DATA c*, In the SAP System, all business transactions are posted to and managed in accounts. You must create a master record for each account that you require. The master record contains data that controls how business transactions are recorded and processed by the system. It also includes all the information about a customer that you need to be able to conduct business with him. c* !,. !", , In the following steps, you make the settings for preparing to create customer master records. To do this, you need the following objects: ^
!" The number range determines the number interval from which the account number for the master record is to be selected. The account number must be assigned when creating a customer master record. Using the number range, you also determine whether the numbers are assigned internally by the system or externally by yourself.
++!"* The account group is a grouping of properties which control the creation of master records. It determines which fields have to be or can be filled when creating the master record. A number range is allocated to the account group. The type of number assignment and a number interval are determined using it. Accounts which require the same master record fields and use the same number range are created using the same account group.
#, , The field status definitions determine the status of the fields on the screens for the master data. You define the status dependent on the account group. You can also determine the status dependent on the processing type (transaction) and on the company code.
To do this, you should consider the following: c Ă¨
How many number ranges do you need for your customer master records? For the size of the number intervals, you should try and take into consideration not only the current customer master but also future developments.
How many account groups do you need? You must create at least one account group if you do not use the groups available in the standard system. The number of number ranges gives you an initial clue as to the number of account groups. Your number ranges are allocated to the account groups. If you have determined that you require several number ranges, then you must create at least as many account groups so that you can use the number ranges. The number of account groups which you need also depends on whether you use these groups for the layout of the screens. For example, in the standard system two account groups are recommended: one group for standard accounts and another group for onetime accounts.
Should the screen fields have a special field status dependent on the account group? This status can depend on p the company code in which the master record is created p the transactions with which the master record is processed.
.! ++!&*,12+! ,, In this step, you determine the account groups for customers. You can also define reference account groups for one-time accounts. You can use these to control the fields of the one-time account screen so that, for example, certain fields are displayed as required fields or are hidden. When creating a customer account, you must specify an account group. You can specify a reference account group under "Control" in the "General data" part of a one-time account's master data. If you do not specify a reference account group, then, as previously, all fields of the one-time account screen are ready for input during document entry. You use the account group to determine: ^
the interval for the account numbers
whether the number is assigned internally by the system or externally by the user (type of number assignment

Now set up partner determination
c !! ! In the following menu options, you define the rules according to which automatic partner determination is to be carried out. When creating a customer master record, the SAP System proposes the allowed partner functions to be maintained. According to the rules defined here, the partners are adopted from the customer master records of the sold-to parties into the sales and distribution documents. c [
You have to edit the following points for the function "Partner determination": ^
Partner function You define with the help of the partner function which functions exist for the partners ( customers, vendors, employees, and so on) in your system.
Partners allowed for each account group You allocate the permitted partner functions to every account group customer.
Function conversion You can define the key of the partner functions according to the language.
Partner object Partners are possible in the customer master record and the so-called partner objects in the sales and distribution documents . Select a partner object and define the rules for partner determination for this object.
Partner determination procedures You define partner determination procedures which contain all the allowed partner functions for every partner object.
Procedure allocation You allocate each partner determination procedure to an actual partner object using a key, for example, to an account group customer or a sales document type.
Partners are contained both in the customer master records and in the sales and distribution documents . You define partner determination for each of these objects individually. The following partner objects exist: ^
customer master record
sales document p header p item
delivery c 책

billing document p header p item
After defining the partner functions, select one partner object after the other and define the partner determination procedures for the selected object. Only when you have checked and, if necessary, changed the partner determination for all the partner objects is the function "Partner determination" completed. Note on tranport interface In the transport, all objects maintained for partner determination are transported.

You can change the shipping point in the sales document manually. Shipping points are maintained in Customizing in Section "Create shipping point". The specification of a shipping point is required for creating a delivery for an order item. The automatic determination of the shipping point depends on the following criteria: ^
delivering plant of the item The delivering plant is automatically determined by the SAP System in the sales document item, on the basis of the ship-to party and the material. You can manually change the delivering plant of an item.

The Pricing function is a method of determining prices using the condition technique. SAP Enterprise Buyer uses Pricing when purchase documents are being created, for example, when a shopping cart or purchase order is created. The system automatically determines the gross price and any surcharges and discounts that apply to a specific vendor according to defined conditions. The system uses the gross price and these surcharges or discounts to determine the net price. Pricing consists of the following elements: ^ !!* A condition type serves to differentiate between prices in the system. You can define a separate condition type for each type of price, surcharge or discount that may arise in your business transactions. The condition type defines, for example, a discount as a fixed amount or as a percentage. ^ ++,,9!+ An access sequence is a search strategy with which the system looks for valid data for a specific condition type. You can define an access sequence for each condition type. In Enterprise Buyer the access sequences are predefined, changes are not intended to be made by customers. ^ !! # A condition table contains price information on a master data type, for example, on a product master. If you define a product price or a special discount, for example, you create condition records in the relevant condition table.
There are two types of pricingÂś internally And Externally c+!"!# The following steps describe how you should set up pricing control in the system. You should be familiar with the pricing criteria before making the necessary settings for pricing in the SAP System. Check how prices as well as surcharges and discounts are created. For example, determine whether different prices apply to individual customers or customer groups and how surcharges and discounts are calculated.
Check whether separate pricing is carried out for individual business transactions. You may levy specific freight surcharges for rush orders, for example. Specify at what point in time prices are determined (e.g. for sales promotions, price increases, etc.). Also clarify who is responsible for determining prices. Afterwards, adjust your pricing dependencies to the pricing criteria in the SAP System. To do this, see the following steps. Ăż ĂżĂżĂżĂżĂż ĂżĂżĂżĂżĂż ĂżĂżĂżĂżĂżĂż

!+#,! 1. Integration can be the highest benefit of SAP. The only real project aim for implementing ERP is reducing data redudancy and redudant data entry. If this is set as a goal, to automate inventory posting to G/L, then it might be a successful project. ERP improves the cooperation of users.
2. I think individual efficiency can suffer by implementing ERP. The big question with ERP is whether the benefit of integration and cooperation can make up for the loss in personal efficiency or not.
3. It reduces cost only if the company took accounting and reporting seriously even before implementation and had put a lot of manual effort in it. If they didn't care about it, if they just did some simple accounting to fill mandatory statements and if internal reporting did not exists of has not been financially-oriented, then no cost is reduced.
4. Less reporting or accounting personnel, but more sales assistants etc.
5. What ERP does is makes the lives of inaccurate people or organization a complete hell and maybe forces them to be accurate (which means hiring more people or distributing work better), or it falls.
