    hi,

    The ASAP methodology is recommended by SAP for implementation planning and system implementation. It has the following phases.

    Project Preparation - The primary focus of Phase 1 is getting the project started, identifying team members and developing a high-level plan.

    Business Blueprint - The primary focus of Phase 2 is to understand the business goals of the company and to determine the business requirements needed to support those goals.

    Realization - The purpose of this phase is to implement all the business and process requirements based on the Business Blueprint. You customize the system step by step in two work packages, Baseline and Final configuration.

    Final Preparation - The purpose of this phase is to complete testing, end-user training, system management and cut over activities. Critical open issues are resolved. Upon the successful completion of this phase, you will be ready to run your business in your productive R/3 system.

    Go Live and Support - Transition from a project oriented, pre-productive environment to a successful and live productive operation.

    Def:The Accelarated SAP is the implementation solution provided by SAPwhich integrates several components that works in conjunction to support the rapid and efficient implementation of the PROJECT.

    Hi

    After you have set the project scope, the next step is to generate the Project IMG. From the Business Process Master List (BPML), you can directly access the IMG activities relevant for configuring each process.

    BPML: The Business Process Master List, along with the Business Blueprint, is a key result of the second phase of the Roadmap. Microsoft Excel tables contain the SAP scenarios, process groups, and processes that have been set in scope in the SAP Reference Structure, and are crucial for configuring your SAP System. In Realization, the third phase of the Roadmap, the BPML provides the basis for monitoring and steering test activities and for configuring your SAP System. It contains the titles of the structure items, and displays the status, the owner, links to documentation and links to the SAP System. Amongst other things, the BPML allows you to:

    1) Set your baseline and final scope. These are used for baseline and final configuration.

    2) Access the Project IMG and specific IMG activities assigned to structure items.

    3) Access integration test plans, which help you carry out all required integration tests.

    The Prerequisite is you have set the project scope.

    Process Flow to use the Business Blueprint as a basis for configuring your SAP System:

    1) Set the project scope.

    2) Generate the Project IMG.

    3) Generate the BPML.

    4) From a specific processes in the BPML, you can go to the relevant IMG activities and make Customizing settings.
