    Dear César,

    Welcome to the SAP PCM community and get ready for the knowledge journey 😉

    If you are planning to try to install and develop the model on your own / with your company team members I strongly suggest you have an initial look at:

    A - Blog post from Jens Koerner:

    Looking for PCM demos, customer references, roadmaps, performance and sizing information, training, documentation or tips & tricks?

    B - All the official documentation at SAP Help Portal

    SAP Profitability and Cost Management 10.0 – SAP Help Portal Page

    C - All the SAP Notes that you will need for sure related to PCM (you will need a SAP username and password)

    This should give you a good overview of the tool and the installation steps.

    But from my point of view there are other very important and critical elements in need to have ready to be successful with an SAP PCM project:

    1 - Make sure you have clearly defined the objectives for the SAP PCM model(s);

    2 - Have the right IT hardware ; infrastructure ready and available;

    3 - Make sure you have people in your project team from Finance; Operations and IT;

    4 - Define the outputs clearly

    5 - Provide the training to the key users (Admin; Model Builders; End-Users)

    Having someone with previous experience in both the technical and functional areas of PCM will help you to speed up the timeline of your project.

    I hope this helps and feel free to connect for further information.

    Best regards,
