Cutover planning in SAP EHS

Dear all

I am planning the cutover activities for the SAP EHS area and therefore I would like to know, which open objects should I consider for this transition phase. I am thinking about incidents still opened, as an example.

Which objects should be considered carefully for cutover planning in SAP EHS? Any opinion from your experience can be useful.

    Hi Maria,

    Much of the cutover planning also depends upon which all SAP EHS components are in scope (IH, OH, PS etc??) and also on client's requirement of legacy/historic data migration.

    Please reply with specific details.

    Dear Maria

    SAP EHS Management for Beginners

    is trying only to collect hints regarding e.g. : how to start a project (in EHS area). I am not aware of any similar question and as Pavan has stated: without knowledge what you would like to "implement" nobody can help

    But clearly: you can check SAP pages and look for their "best practise" like discussed e.g. here:

    ASAP Methodology for Implementation


    PS: take a look to book "The SAP project". This book covers anything (start of a SAP project, go through and clsoe it (including cut over);

    • Dear Maria,


      "Your first link refers to a link for SAP beginners. I was refering to cutover activities before the go live."

      Yes this is a document for beginners but contains references to threads like "how to start an EHS project"etc.

      I am not aware of specific threads for "cut over" activities. Most of the threads here discuss. which skill, knowlegdes are needed to start EHS/EHSM from "scratch"


      The second link is a general approach. If I would need that, I would address the general forum and not the SAP EHS.

      Yes this is true. This is a general methodology; But without knowlegde about the type of project we talk about nobody can help you to list "cut over activities"

      We can have e,g:

      • SAP ERP Update projects
      • SAP ERP Ugrade projects
      • Movement of legacy system data to a SAP ERP (either existing or new)
      • INstallation of add on software (like EHSM etc.)

      any of these projects require different cut over activities..

      Like Mark:

      The statement;

      I was refering to the cutover activities specifically for EHS. For example, labeling approach for the legacy batches sitting in the inventories.

      is not "precise" enough to help you

      E.g. let us assume this: you started SAP ERP from scratch based on some legcy system. According to my experonece here. Especially in the area of GLM: there is simply no strategy available.

      You need to have first: REAL_SUB, Then Material, Then data mainatined on REAL_SUB and Material level; you neeed released GLM reports etc.

      So please describe you project type; then may be answers are possible
