Factors to be considered in System Study?

Hi Experts,

I am going to take up a new implementation project. Our client wants us to implement SAP Payroll. They want me to do system study. I dont have experience in complete end-to-end implemenation but am aware about the process and am ready to take up the challenge.

Your help required for the following questions:

What is system study?

How to initiate the process?

How to study the legacy system?

How much time it requires?

What are the things to be considered while performing the system study in payrolls perspective ?

How to prepare the documentation more effectively? Does any one have sample documents? If yes please mail them to

Your quick response is highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards

    how the employee are classified w.r.t group & level.

    what are the different payment & deduction are applicable in the company.

    how the company is paying the salary(mode of payment i.e. Cash, DD, or Bank transfer etc.)

    Are there any incentive are applicable.

    is there any irregular payments are made by company.what is the frequency

    what is the rule & regulation for bonus payment. also check for the union agreement.

    what are the different benefits & plans are applicable according to the employee grade & levels.
