cProject, xRPM and PS integration

I have some question about integration between SAP PS and cProjects/xRPM.

I know that I can upload structure of project from SAP PS to cProjects and then to get some

data to xRPM.

Is this integration permament and in both directions?

What I mean.

When I change some data in PS eg. dates, structure or responsible persons will this be send

automatically to cProjects and xRPM?

The same in the opposite direction. When I plan some resources eg personnel will this be send

to PS at the same time?

    Hi,

    yes, the integration is permanent.

    For Example....

    During transfer of work centers from Project System to xRPM, teams are created in xRPM for each of the work centre being transferred to xRPM. One can do this from SAP PLM PS by running the report RPM_WRKCNTR_UPLOAD,

    which transfers work centers to SAP xRPM and uses them to create team master data. The team name in xRPM is generated using a combination of plant and work center, because the work center ID is only unique within a plant and can be used again in a different plant.

    The resources assigned to the work center are used to create the resources assigned to teams in SAP xRPM. The employee IDs of resources in SAP PLM PS are used to search for business partners in SAP xRPM with identicalemployee IDs.

    If a match is found, the business partner is added to theteam.

    If the SAP PLM PS work center is created using organization units, the employees in the organization unit are derived during the transfer of the work center and used as the basis for creating teams. If new employees are added to the organization after you have run the report, these employees are not included in SAP xRPM system unless you run the program again. For

    this reason, you should run the program regularly (for example, weekly) or schedule it for background.

    Hope it helps you.

    Thanks

    Adam,

    the integration depends on PPM version you are using. In 4.5 you CANNOT sync from PS to PPM. The above posted message about resources talks about team which cannot be staffed to a project.

    See PPM documentation on the matter and let me know if you have any integration-specific questions.
