Retrofit - Change Request Management (ChaRM)



My company has been using the ChaRM functionality in Solution Manager for a time now, and one of the features is the retrofit function which according to SAP be able to retrofit all your changes done in the maintenance string to the project string. We have about 50 transports a week in out maintainance string which is moved all the wait to production, only 50 % of these changes is supported by the retrofit function as most of them does note use the BC set activcation.

At this point we cannot see the benefit of retrofit because we need to manually redo 50 % of our changes an cannot be sure whether your system landscapes are consisten.

We found it strange that not even SAP notes is supported by the retrofit function and needs to be manually processed.

Does anyone els have the same experience, and does someone know whether SAP has any plans to expand there list of objects supported by the retrofit function.

PS: We have been in close dialog with SAP and have applied all the SAP notes and done all the configuration to make sure the retrofit function runs optimal.
