    Hi Satyam,

    SAP DMS are for storing documents such as CAD drawings, Materials pictures etc. With the document management system, users will be able to view the documents with ease within their SAP systems.Installing the SAP DMS requires a little bit of planning on how you want to do it.

    You have to give a little thoughts to stuff such as :-

    1. The total numbers of documents that will be store monthly.

    2. The average file size of each documents.

    3. The capacity of your present R/3 system.

    4. Your present network bandwidth.

    5. Document Archiving Strategy.

    6. Backup and Recovery Plan.

    Additional purchasing of hardware are required, especially if you have large amount of documents to stored. With this in mind, you can then decide on how you want to do it.

    You can do this in a few ways :-

    1. Import the documents into the R/3 system.

    2. Use an external document server.

    3. Have a dedicated PCs where all the documents are stored.

    Most companies that intend to used DMS will opt for Option 2 as they does not want to overstretch the R/3 database. Options 1 requires you to setup the conversion interface.The conversion interface allows R/3 to automatically covert your files and import it into the R/3 database.

    Please assign points if I had been of help to you.
