    RICEFW means Reports, Interface, Conversion, Enhancements, Forms and Workflow.

    It is applicable to all modules. Development of these items will be dealt separately in large projects. A separate team will work on the development of programs, scripts etc.

    Reports - Development of customized reports in ABAP, Report Painter or BW

    Interface - Some business processes may be maintained in external systems. For example Payroll, Fixed Assets, Dispute management etc. These external activities may need postings in SAP. Interface programs are developed to automate the postings in SAP.

    Conversion - Conversion of Legacy data to loadable format into SAP. The process consists Extraction of legacy data from legacy systems, Transformation of data into loadable LSMW format and Loading the data into SAP. This activity is important and need accuracy. Hence, a separate team may be assigned for conversion alone.

    Enhancements - Generally in the case of large implementations a Global template Blue-print will be prepared and followed. If a plant or company code need additional configuration to meet their country specific or plant specific requirements, the template will be enhanced with new configurations.

    Forms - Development of layouts for Invoices, Account statements, Delivery notes etc

    Workflow - Development of approval flow logic in SAP. For example GL master data changes should follow specific approval process.
