    Dear Rash,

    ASAP

    ASAP stands for Accelerated SAP. Its purpose is to help design SAP

    implementation in the most efficient manner possible. Its goal is to effectively

    optimize time, people, quality and other resources, using a proven methodology to

    implementation.

    ASAP focuses on tools and training, wrapped up in a five-phase process oriented

    road map for guiding implementation.

    The road map is composed of five well-known consecutive phases:

    u2022 Phase 1 Project Preparation

    u2022 Phase 2 Business Blueprint

    u2022 Phase 3 Realization

    u2022 Phase 4 Final Preparation

    u2022 Phase 5 Go-Live and support

    Phase 1 : Project Preparation

    Phase 1 initiates with a retrieval of information and resources. It is an important

    time to assemble the necessary components for the implementation. Some

    important milestones that need to be accomplished for phase 1 include

    u2022 Obtaining senior-level management/stakeholder support

    u2022 identifying clear project objectives

    u2022 architect an efficient decision-making process

    u2022 creating an environment suitable for change and re-engineering

    u2022 building a qualified and capable project team.

    Senior level management support:

    One of the most important milestones with phase 1 of ASAP is the full agreement

    and cooperation of the important company decision-makers - key stake holders

    and others. Their backing and support is crucial for a successful implementation.

    Clear project objectives:

    be concise in defining what your objectives and expectations are for this venture.

    Vague or unclear notions of what you hope to obtain with SAP will handicap the

    implementation process. Also make sure that your expectations are reasonable

    considering your company's resources. It is essential to have clearly defined

    ideas, goals and project plans devised before moving forward.

    An efficient decision making process:

    One obstacle that often stalls implementation is a poorly constructed decision-

    making process. Before embarking on this venture, individuals need to be clearly

    identified. Decide now who is responsible for different decisions along the way.

    From day one, the implementation decision makers and project leaders from

    each area must be aware of the onus placed on them to return good decisions

    quickly.

    Environment suitable for change and re engineering:Your team must be willing to

    accept that, along with new SAP software, things are going to change, the

    business will change, and information technology enabling the business will

    change as well. By implementing SAP, you will essentially redesign your current

    practices to model more efficient or predefined best business practices as

    espoused by SAP. Resistance to this change will impede the progress of your

    implementation.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.
