    hi..welcome to sdn...

    SAP follows ASAP methodology to make the project implementation.

    a)Project Preparation

    b)Blue-print

    c)Realization / Fit-gap analysis

    d)Pre-producton

    e)Go-live / Production

    Generally in project preparation top management / PM will discuss with the client regarding the business integration n pros n cons of implementation.

    Blue print contains all the functional specs related to the project.

    Realization is the place where u actually implement and provide solutions , like activation of Business content objects etc.

    Pre-production is the place where u will test the project .

    Go-live means actual production and u will support the issues hereafter.

    Normally u will involve in the realization phase .

    this thread will be useful for u:

    When u r working on the bw implementation depends upon u r experience task will be assigned to you.

    Generally any sap implementation have same phases above what kalyan mention but it will vary from client to client.

    Before going to u r task u need to understand the application(business process) of u r client according to that u need to configure or create or activate the objects.

    once these objects completed in the development server u need to transport into quality server then u need to send into production server there u need to check whether objects r working according to u r client requirement.

    Entire process will take some more time

    Full Life Cycle - It has the scope, requirement analysis, coding/development, testing, go-live... Full life cycle of a project...

    End-to-End Implementation - We will take an example that we want to implement the entire NetWeaver 2004s... From extraction to reporting to broadcasting etc.,

    end to end impl:

    1. AS IS process

    2. To be process mapping

    3. customizaiton in SAP + devepment

    4. Unit testing

    5. Full testing

    6. End-user training

    7. Go-live

    8. Support for initial month-ends.

    9. Ongoing support

    End to End Implementation (SAP Life Cycle)

    full impl:

    1 Project Preparation / Requirement Gathering

    2 Business Blueprint

    3 Realization

    4 Final Preparation

    5 GO Live & Support

    BW Implementation

    Below steps are the the high level plan for the BW implementation

    If it is End to End Implementation Project , You will be involved in all Phases

    1. AS IS process - Study of the existing process.

    2. To do process mapping - What will be the new process.

    3. customizaiton in SAP & query development - Customizing the cubes and ODS,Reports

    4. Unit testing - Testing of each and every module and reports

    5. Full testing - Full system testing. In this step all steps are integrated so, it is also known as Integration testing.

    6. End-user training - Training for the Power user (first line users) by the SAP Consultants. They will in turn train to other users.

    7. Go-live

    8. Support for initial month-ends. -

    9. Post implementation support....

    Full Life cycle

    1.Project Prepararion

    2. Blue Print

    3. Project Preparation

    4. Final Preparation

    5. Go live & Support

    Hello omkar,

    basically they are both addressing the same thing: all activities regarding to implement a full BW solution. Starting from collecting user requirements and creating blueprint to end-user training and live system support.

    End to End is a little bit technical point of view naming.

    Full life cycle is more business approach naming.

    Hope helps.

    sarhan.

    Hi omkar nag,

    Full life cycle is used in the context of full implementation,

    related with,

    Business Blue Print

    Realization

    Testing

    Go live & Post go live support.

    But in the case of End - End Implementation

    can be related

    to a particular business process.

    Example,

    Order to Cash as end to end cycle.

    This will relates with

    Creation of a Sales Order, Delivery, Billing and Customer Payment.

    Thanks & Regards
