SAP system or solutions for pre-construction data collection

In determining whether to bid or understand the level of complexity of a constructions project alot of data is collected and reviewed by various dept's.

- type of construction

- insurance requirements

- permits requirments

- environmental concerns

- sub contractor requirments

- financing, currency, tax

As I explore SAP functionality in ERP, CRM, SRM, CLM, etc trying to determine where the best long term strategy where to house this type of information or if any SAP construction solutions will be providing a way to capture this type of information.

    Glen - I believe that the best thing about SAP is that the system in fully integrated so each piece of this information can live in the system where it makes the most sense for it to be. With the release of the new Commercial Project Management application and the concept of "master projects" it becomes even easier to correlate the information across the various modules and view it seamlessly. I hope this helps.

    Great question, and something I've also struggled with on past implementations. I agree with Johnny that from what I have seen of Commercial Project Management, the concept of a Master Project that ties together CRM Opportunities, PS Projects, PPM Projects, Sales Orders, POs, etc. will really help in this area. The Master Project can be used to join data if it is stored in different sub-entities, but also has it's own record with standard and user-defined fields that can configured to capture this sort of information.
