EHS Master Data & Migration from Legacy System

Hi EH&S experts,

Can you please provide the inputs regarding the EC and EH&S (PS, DG,WM,REACH,IHS and OHS) master data and what can be part of EH&S specification database of that master data?

What is the best way to migrate the data from legacy to SAP EHS(Pi,LSMW, Dataeditor)?

How the EC-master data to be handled?

Background: Client want to migrate the all legacy data into SAP before implementing the EHS modules.

Thanks in advance for all EHS experts.

    Hi Viveka,

    The best way to migrate data into EH&S is using the DataEditor. As a rule of thumb, you can migrate everything that you can see in the specification workbench plus phrases/phrase sets/phrase set assignments.Prerequisite is, of course, that the necessary classes and characteristics exist already in the system, so migrating before implementation of EH&S will not work.

    this thread is quite old. But may be some information is needed to help others:

    Step 1: If you are willing to set up SAP ERP you need to ask your self: which modules are of interest to do so?

    Step 2: In most cases the answer is: SAP Fi, SAP CO, SAP MM, SAP SD, SAP PP; some times on top: SAP QM, SAP RM or RD; and you need clearly Business Master Data (Supplier, Customer data retc.)

    Step 3: for each of these modules you need specific set up customizing etc.) and then you start generation of "master data"

    Step 4: for the EHS set up it is quite critical to define the "Material Master data" set up and how you would like to use this (e.g. generation of may be HALB, FERT, RAW etc. material master data

    Step 5: now EHS comes in place. For data migration and looking on EHS classic the following options exsist for data migration (/Customizing etc. is a different story)

    1.) You can use EHS import option

    2.) you can use OCC import option

    3.) You can use ALE option (PI, LSMW related)

    But yo uhave a "working" EHS solution you should think about the use of "content".

    Content does mean: phrases, WWI template, property tree, rule set rules etc.

    And Don't forget: you need an EHS access concept

    PLease check the many threads for data migration here
