RollOut: Data migration phase - material master


Dear all,

we are going to implement the SAP in one of our subsidiaries. The phase data migration of the material master is not that clear because I am not very experienced in such a project.

Can anybody consult me concerning my intentions?

I would like to subdivide the prozess data migration in the following separate steps:

1. Analysis of the structure and the material master fields of the legacy system

First I would require an example structure of the legacy system to get a first overview. This structure should be an excel sheet. Then I would discuss this structure with the staff of our subsidiary.

2. Structure of our SAP system

The structure of the SAP and all the necessary fields of the material master will be discussed with the staff of the subsidiary.

3. Comparing of both structures

Compare both structures and define which fields are missing and which fields have to be added

4. Preparation of the migration tool (LSMW)

I would be very grateful to get a reply or critic are recommendations.

Did I forget anything?

Thank you very much
