    Business Need

    To succeed with today’s complex product-development efforts, companies need powerful solutions that allow them to employ sophisticated project-management methods that drive speed and quality. They also need easy-to-use and easy-to-implement tools that enable engineers to work together to innovate, share knowledge, and track progress.

    What they don’t need, however, is the traditional stand-alone project-management point solution, which tends to lead to islands of information and extensive integration efforts down the road. In short, companies need a different approach one that lets them manage product-development projects more effectively today, without limiting their options for tomorrow.

    To help companies address those challenges, SAP offers SAP Collaborative Project Management (cProjects). cProjects covers the entire range of project management activities in development and consultancy projects, from planning to implementation to project completion.

    Hi Sanjay

    cProjects suite is a Web-based, flexible, easy-to-use project management application that is specifically designed for development, consulting, or IT projects. In cProjects, you can also map improvement projects, for example, in accordance with Six Sigma. An important advantage is that cProjects is integrated in SAP Accounting, Human Resources, Customer Relationship Management, Supplier Relationship Management and order processing. In addition, you can link your project structures in cProjects with existing structures in the Project System (PS). This means that from the outset, you can plan your costs better, control your expenses, avoid resource bottlenecks and analyze and settle projects more accurately. Important: cProjects compliments rather than replaces PS. cProjects provides enhanced functions for project types and business scenarios that require an easy-to-use and flexible project management tool.

    Collaboration Projects (cProjects) is a cross-industry tool you use to plan and monitor development and consultant projects from start to finish. cProjects supports the following processes:

    1.Project Planning with cProjects

    2.Project Execution with cProjects

    3.Project Accounting with cProjects

    4.Resource and Time Management with cProjects

    You can find more details at the following link

    I have sent you some documents to your email id.
