    Hi,

    Five Phases of ASAP methodlogy.

    Phase 1: Project Preparation - The purpose of this phase is to provide initial planning and preparation for your SAP project.

    Phase 2: Business Blueprint - The purpose of this phase is to achieve a common understanding of how the company intends to run its business within the SAP System. The result is the Business Blueprint, a detailed documentation of the results gathered during requirements workshops. The Business Blueprint document represents the business process requirements of the company. It is the agreed statement of how the company intends to run its business within the SAP System.

    Phase 3: Realization - The purpose of this phase is to implement all the business process requirements based on the Business Blueprint. The system configuration methodology is provided in two work packages: Baseline (major scope); and Final configuration (remaining scope).

    Phase 4: Final Preparation - The purpose of this phase is to complete the final preparation (including testing, end user training, system management and cutover activities) to finalize your readiness to go live. The Final Preparation phase also serves to resolve all critical open issues. On successful completion of this phase, you are ready to run your business in your live SAP System.

    Phase 5: Go Live & Support - The purpose of this phase is to move from a project-oriented, pre-production environment to live production operation.

    Additionally:

    Some additional Infomation on ASAP methodology:

    Phase 1 - Project Preparation

    Change Charter - Goals and objectives of Organizational Change Management

    Project Plan - This is a first cut focusing on milestones and Work Packages; details to come.

    Scope - Sets the initial definition of the project; input from sales cycle.

    Project Team Organization - Sets the who of the project: Standards & Procedures - Sets the why and how of the project.

    Phase 2 - Business Blueprint - Requirements reviewed for each SAP Reference Structure item and defined using CI Templates (in the Q&Adb). Business Blueprint - This is the output of the Q&Adb and is the key document for Phase 3.

    Phase 3 - Realization - Master Lists - Define business scenarios and R/3 transactions to be realized in the system. BPP - Business Process Procedures representing R/3 transactions; used for unit testing & documentation. Planning - Defines how the configuration will be done and how it will be tested. Development Programs - Provides details of the external programming requirements. EU Training Material - End User training material and process documentation.

    Phase 4 - Final Preparation Stress & Volume Tests - Plans for confirming the production hardware’s capabilities

    Cutover Plan - The details of how to move to the production environment and go live

    Conduct End User Training - Delivery of the necessary levels of R/3 End User training prior to going live

    Phase 5 - Go Live & Support: Ensuring system performance through SAP monitoring and feedback.

    <b>Business Blue Print</b> is the stage where the current process, expected process, possible process & gaps analtsis are dobe & documented in the form of AS-IS, TO-BE & Gap analysis document. Once these document are signed by core team member, the next phase is realization phase.

    <b>Realization Phase</b> is the Phase in whic the actual configuration takes place as per process finalized, unit testing, integration testing, User testing are done & documented. The gaps in configuration are identified & plugged.

    Dear Sankalp Singhai,

    1. Project Preparation : Project team, infrastructure, Software, Steering committe etc will be identified in this phase.

    2. Business Blue Print : Re-engineering of Business process and BBP sign off.

    3. Realization : Analysing Gap and Realization of possible customization and development effort

    4. Final Preparation and Go Live : Development and Configuration

    5. Post Go Live support : Support after go live

    You would allot specific time periods for each of these phases and will set milestones accordingly.

    or it could even be like :

    Project Start

    Analysis

    Design

    Design Freeze / Client Sign-off

    Construction

    Testing

    Implementation

    Project End

    Project Management Framework

    Post Close Review

    Training

    Change Management

    Refer following links for more info:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAP_Implementation

    http://www.sapfans.com/sapfans/asap/be_01_e.htm

    There are different flavors of project implementations.

    1. Template implementation - without much customization - based on a predefined rollout template

    2. CUstom rollout

    3. Ramp up rollout

    4. Enhancements to an existing implementation

    5. project recovery

    The project life cycle consists of [1] Project Charter,[2]Scope,[3] planning,[4]Execution,[5]Control and [6] closure.

    Charter tells you the purpose of the project,for example,to eliminate an expensive Transmission process by implementing EDI.

    Scope tells what all you will be doing in the project.In SAP,this is Blue printing.

    planning:Here you plan the capital Expenditure - capital budgeting,Expenses,Revenue,Resources and other elements that go in to the project.

    projectExecution : Actual execution of the planned activities

    Control:Here you steer the project towards the intended goals-variance analysis,cost Reduction,Value engineering,budget,standards,fast tracking,crashing,Resource allocation etc etc ,....all find a role here.Here Time,Cost and the other resources are controlled so as to complete the project in time and within the cost baselines.

    Testing also comes here-unit test,integration test,UAT........

    Closure:The project sign off takes place here.

    In the support Environment the "project" will cover a]incident management,b] problem management,c]change management,d]configuration management e] Release management and f] help desk.

    Reward points if this is helpful.

    Regards,

    Naveen.
