SAP Solution Manager

 Purpose

 The SAP Solution Manager supports you throughout the entire

lifecycle of your solutions, from the Business Blueprint thru
configuration to production operation.
 It provides central access to tools methods and preconfigured
content, that you can use during the evaluation, implementation, and
productive operation of your systems.

 Features
Implementation of the mySAP Business Suite:-

All phases of the implementation project (Business Blueprint,

Configuration) are performed centrally in the Solution-Manager

Central project documentation repository in the Solution Manager

Integrated Project Administration allows you to manage planning

schedules, human resources and other project data.


This function documents the business processes in your company that

you want to implement in the system. In a Business Blueprint for
Projects, you create a project structure in which relevant business
scenarios, business processes and process steps are organized in a
hierarchical structure.

You can also create project documentation and assign it to individual

scenarios, processes or process steps. You then assign transactions to
each process step, to specify how your business processes should run
in your SAP Systems.

The Business Blueprint is a detailed description of your business

processes and system requirements. You can print it out.
 Integration

 You can continue to use the project documentation and the project
structure that you create during the Business Blueprint, in the
configuration and test organization phases.
When you configure your business processes, the system displays the
Business Blueprint project structure. You can use the Business
Blueprint project structure as a point of reference during configuration.

You can also display and edit the project documentation from the
Business Blueprint phase, during configuration.

You base all test plans that you create during test organization, on the
Business Blueprint project structure. The transactions that you assign
to process steps in the Business Blueprint are put in test plans during
test plan generation, and run as function tests to test the transactions.

 Activities

 Create a Blueprint structure in the Structure tab, using predefined

 Check the Business Blueprint structure, and the business scenarios,
business processes and process steps it contains.
 Decide which business scenarios, business processes and process
steps you want to include in the Business Blueprint. You can enhance
the processes and process steps, or adjust the names of individual
processes to suit your company requirements.
 Create project documentation to save in the Business Blueprint, in the
Project Documentation tab.
 Assign transactions to process steps in the Transactions tab. This
specifies which transactions in the system correspond to the process
steps in your enterprise.
 Print the Business Blueprint document.
 When the Business Blueprint is complete, you can start to set up the
development system landscape.
 Result:

 You have specified a Business Blueprint. You can reuse the Business
Blueprint and the project structure to configure and test your business
 Configuration :

 This project step configures the process requirements specified in the

Business Blueprint phase, in the system.

 If you use objects from the Business Process Repository in your

structures, they may already be assigned to transactions and BC Sets.

 If you create structures without Business Process Repository objects,

you can assign transactions in the Business Blueprint transaction. You
can assign BC Sets, IMG objects and test cases in the Configuration

 Prerequisites

 You have selected scenarios and processes, or created your own

processes using the Business Process Repository, in the Business
Blueprint phase.

 You are now in the Realization phase and have called the
Configuration transaction.

 Features

This project task comprises the following steps:

Assign Transactions/Programs:

You can call assigned transactions, add new ones or remove

superfluous ones from the project scope, in the Transactions tab.
2.Assign/Edit BC Sets:

You can assign BC Sets to project steps, display the contents of the
assigned BC Sets and delete superfluous BC Sets from the project
scope, in the Configuration tab.

You can activate one BC Set or all BC Sets assigned to a process.

You can create new BC Sets for project or company-specific settings,
which you e.g. want to use in a group rollout or to create your own
solution, in the application system, and assign them in the Solution

3.Assign/Edit IMG

You can assign IMG objects to the project steps. You can display and
edit these settings, and the settings made by BC Sets, in the IMG.

4.Edit Test Cases

You can make initial function tests after the configuration. You can also
run CATTs to see how a transaction works. You can also create test

You document the settings relevant for the configuration along the
project structure, in the Project Documentation.

Create/change problem messages in the Messages Tab

 Activities
1.Cross-Scenario Configuration:

 Create a configuration structure for the basic settings of your

solutions, e.g. for SAP CRM 3.1, under Configuration in the business
process structure.

 Configure these basic settings.

2. Configure your business scenarios under Business Scenarios in the

business process structure, e.g. for the scenario E-Selling.
