    Please choose the appropriate forum for your questions, not sure where this one belongs, but I know it isn't here. And it appears that I do not have authority to move your other threads to more appropriate forums, so please choose your forums correctly, you answers will come faster this way. Thanks.

    Dear Prasad,

    AcceleratedSAP (ASAP) is SAP's standard implementation methodology. It contains the Roadmap, a step-by-step guide that incorporates experience from many years of implementing R/3. Along with that, AcceleratedSAP contains a multitude of tools, accelerators and useful information to assist all team members in implementing R/3. Quality checks are incorporated at the end of each phase to easily monitor deliverables and critical success factors. ASAP is delivered as a PC-based package, so that - if required - an implementation project can begin prior to having an R/3 System installed.

    AcceleratedSAP (ASAP): A comprehensive solution for the introduction of the R/3 System in your enterprise. ASAP and most of its tools can be used independently of an R/3 installation.

    The tools available for AcceleratedSAP are:

    The <b>Project Estimator</b>, an internal SAP tool which enables SAP consultants to accurately gauge the required resources, the costs and the time frame of implementation. The Project Estimator takes into account the project scope and several project and risk factors.

    The <b>Concept Check Tool</b>, a tool enabling you to carry out quality checks on the project preparation, technical infrastructure and R/3 configuration settings. This is done mainly during the first two implementation phases of the R/3 project. In this way you are alerted to potential data volume and configuration conflicts that could lead to performance issues if not addressed.

    The <b>Implementation Assistant</b>: The ASAP navigation tool that accompanies you through the five phases of implementation down to the task level. It includes a description and a detailed "how-to" for each task in the Roadmap. Along with that, many tools, templates and documents are hyperlinked to the task. The Implementation Assistant contains the following elements:

    <b>ASAP Implementation Roadmap</b> and <b>Project Plan</b>. The Roadmap contains the five phases, from which you can drill down into work packages, activities and tasks. The Project Plan contains three components, a budget plan, a resource plan and a work plan. These are explained in more detail in the next chapter.

    The ASAP Roadmap is the successor of the R/3-based Procedure Model, which was used until Rel. 3.1 in R/3 implementation projects.

    <b>Knowledge Corner</b>, containing tips and tricks for configuration from consultants, detailed documentation on SAP’s implementation services, information on technical tools, as well as simplification guidebooks and R/3 Customizing wizards.

    <b>Question and Answer Database (Q&Adb)</b>. Using the R/3 Reference Model structure, the Q&Adb is used to assist in gathering requirements for business processes, conversions, reports, interfaces, enhancements and authorizations. The database provides useful questionnaires to help you define the process needs and also serves as a repository for all this information. Since it is a database, it allows for flexible reporting. The business requirements generated from the Q&Adb are collectively known as the Business Blueprint.

    <b>Business Process Master List</b>, to manage configuration, testing and the creation of end user documentation. The Business Process Master List is linked to pre-written Business Process Procedures (BPPs), detailled end-user documentation for R/3 transactions.

    <b>Issues Database</b>: supporting project management, this database supports the entering, monitoring and managing of issues that come up during the project.

    Reward points if this is helpful.

    Regards,

    Naveen.

    Hi All

    we are in the process of implementing SAP Business One in our SME

    Can we use the ASAP methodology as a project implementation tool for SAP B1 OR is ASAP only for implementing SAP-R3? Is there a simplified version of the ASAP methodology in english? where can I find an english version of the ASAP methodology

    Thanks all in anticipation
