Is retail-SD Scope


I want to know how SD Consultant will play a role in IS Retail Project.

My basic understanding,the role SD consultant is limited when it comes to industry specific Retail .

Enterprise Structure

Site-Here sites (individual store) is treated as Plant         

Master Data

Article Master-Instead of material master

Pricing-I could see mark up pricing,some percentage.

I am very much confused suppose if a SD consultant happens to work in Is Retail project,what all he has to know.

His Basic SD knowledge is sufficient? or Else he should take any extra effort to learn new things relevant to Is Retail,if so what are the topics to be covered.

Please clarify me..

    Hi Pradeep,

    As an SD/MM consultant with 9+ years experience with IS-Retail projects, I would first recommend you to go through the IS Retail scenarios and check for the processes that you'd possibly have to cover; Below is the link to the IS-R scenario map, I've not taken the latest as I could not make it work 😊 However, the solution scope has not really changed in years;

    SAP Retail BP V1.605 - Scenario Map

    It is quite difficult to recommend a specific retail functional area but I see the following list of retail SD (or SD related) areas as a must when working on an IS-R project;

    • Concept of Assortment & Listing (as listing is usually required to sell article in stores)
    • Store Connectivity / POS Interface
    • Retail Price Calculation
    • Promotions & Bonus Buys, Seasons
    • Article Hierarchy (do not confuse with Merch.Cat.Hierarchy)
    • Understand Article Master Data (single/generic+variant/sales set/pre-pack)  & Site Master Data structure

    However, I'm sure that experience of other consultants might be completely different and the above list much shorter.. or much longer! 😊

    Hope this helps!
