    ASAP Methodology:

    Project Preparation:

    The first step in ASAP is Project Preparation. In this step the Functional Consultant will analyse the business process and define the system for SAP and will give the time line for the project. The Manpower required and the budgets are also considered in this step.

    Blue Print Preparation:

    This is second step in ASAP Methodology. In this step the Project Preparation scenarios are finalised. A out line of the Project is given in this step.


    In this step actual development is taken place. The ABAPer is responsible for this step.


    In this step the development done by the abaper is being tested. This is the area where the Unit Test Document is prepared (i.e. Positive Testing and Negative Testing).

    GO live and Support:

    This is the final stage where the project is running in the live environment. In this step the bugs if any that are found in the go live procedure are fixed and the project will be considered as support project.

    Rewards if useful.

    see this

    There are different types of Projects in SAP:

    1. Implementation

    Customer wants to install SAP/Include different modules of SAP viz. MM/SD/FI/CO/PP etc for the first time.Previously he might be using some legacy system in his orgn. This is implementation project. Here one needs to integrate several modules, migrate data from Legacy system to SAP system. Need to prepare interfaces/RFC's to interact with 3rd party systems.

    Most of the company's follow ASAP methodology for the Implementation projects

    there are 5 stages in the ASAP methodology

    they are

    1. Project Initial Preparation

    2.Business Blueprint


    4/ Final Preparation

    5.Golive And Support

    ABAP work mostly starts in the Blue print ending stage or in the realization stage

    2. Support

    Customer has already installed SAP & wants to give the work of maintaining those systems. This is support project

    There is no phases in it. Just receive the tickets, solve and send back to client.

    3. Upgrade

    Customer has SAP Version 4.6b and wants to update his version i.e. wants to go to Version 4.7. This is upgrade project

    4. Rollouts

    Customer has upgraded his version & wants to rollout country specific changes.

    This is rollout project

    Say a COmpany is having branches in 3 to 4 countries.

    In One country they have already implemented SAP

    IF they wants to implement the same SAP in other countries of their branches they will simply follow the same SAP implementation policy (Rollout) how they have done for the first country just by changing the country specific settings and configurations.

    Full cycle implementation is -

    which covers all the phases of ASAP methodoly Prepare, Blueprint, Realization, GO Live & Support ..i.e starts from scratch....

    while end -to-end is when customer is implementing solution to cover almost all the business processes.
