SAP HCM (SAP Human Capital Management) SAP Stands for: Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing SAP software was developed to be modular, scalable, open and flexible, allowing companies to tailor it specifically to their needs. SAP calls this approach to implementing software "configure to order" because each implementation will be different according to each customer's needs. SAP takes a different approach. There is only one information system in an enterprise, SAP. All applications access common data. Real events in the business initiate transactions. Accounting is done automatically by events in sales and production. Sales can see when products can be delivered. Production schedules are driven by sales. The whole system is designed to be real-time and not historical. The process of adapting procedures to the SAP model involves "Business Process Re-engineering" which is a logical analysis of the events and relationships that exist in an enterprise's operations. Multi country Operations, Flexibility, Enterprise wise Integration, Real Time Information Architecture: Presentation Server <-> Application Server <-> Database Server SAP HCM Modules Personnel Administration (PA) Organization Management (OM) Time Management (TM) Payroll (PY) Benefits Administration (BA) Recruitment Training & Event Management Personnel Development (PD) Compensation Management Travel Management Employee / Manager Self Services (ESS / MSS) E- Recruitment (ER) Learning Solutions (LS) Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) Environmental Health & Safety Employee Life Cycle: New Position (OM) - - > Hiring (PA) - - > Benefits Enrollment (BA) - - > Time Reporting (TM) - - > Payment (PY) - - > View Paystubs (ESS) Depends on your requirement and convenience, you can learn sap modules any order.

SAP HCM (SAP Human Capital Management) SAP HCM uses Infotypes to store all relevant employee data required for administration purposes. Authorization to access SAP HR Master Data can be defined at the Infotypes level. In HCM we have Following Infotype Ranges Pre defined by SAP: 0000 0999: For HR/PY 1000 - 1999: For OM 2000 2999: For TM 4000 4999: For Recruitment 9000 9999: User Defined Sub Infotype: Some Infotypes are divided in different groups linked to the same theme. These groups are called subtypes. Permanent Residence and Emergency Address are subtypes of the Infotype 0006 (Addresses). Custom Infotype: Many times the client requirement is to have some additional fields along with the standard Infotype screen which is available by SAP. This can easily be done through Enhancement of Infotypes. The major transaction codes that would be needed are PA30 & PM01 (If you get a message saying the Infotype cannot be enhanced, try transaction Code PPCI instead of PM01) Steps involved in Info type menus as follows: I Create Name for Infotype Menu I Create Menu Items for entire project S Choose the Infotype Menu S Assign Infotype Menu to 01 HR Master Table G Create Name for Infotype Menu for Action G Group Infotype Menu Items as per your needs/Actions. Infotype Menus: SPRO > Personnel Management > Personnel Administration > Customizing Procedures > Infotype Menus > Infotype Menu > User Group Dependency on Menus and Info Groups > New Entries for I > Menu Group: Alphanumeric length max 02. Ex: IK, IM (User Dep), HN (No User Dep) Text: Enter Text to Display Menu Header as you like. User Going to see this Text in Menu Tab. Ex:GE KY Menu User Group Dependency (UGR): Check Reference: User Group Ref. ex: 10 for US. > Save If you are not checking User Dependency then fill reaction field. Reaction Field is optional: W- Warning, E Error, - No Message (Blank) Hint: If UGR is not set in the User Parameters, then specify the Reference User Group as you like two digits and update that value in the User Group Parameters ie; UGR and Save Reference user group is Default value is 00. We can create different numbers for each module to be created under HR so that access is barred for users other than current module. If No User Dependency selected then we cant fill reaction field. It is active only with User Dependency Check mark. Infotype Menu > Select Menu Ex: IK, IM > New Entries > User Group: Country Group Ex: 10 for US Number: Serial Number

A time constraint indicates whether more than one infotype record may be available at one time. When you update an infotype, old data is not lost but archived for historical evaluation. The system records a specific period of validity for each infotype, This enables the system to store more than one infotype record at the same time, even if their validity periods overlap. This means that the time relationships between infotype records must be defined. The concept of time constraints enables you to do this. HR master data uses the following three time constraints: Time Constraint 1 (Data is stored without gaps or overlaps) Time Constraint 2 (Data can be stored with gaps, but not with overlaps) Time Constraint 3 (Data can be stored with gaps and overlaps) Access Tables using Transaction Code: SM30 If you can only remember part of a table name or the text relating to a table name - then go to table maintenance via transaction code SM30 and click on the pull-down (F4). The first 500 entries (defaulted) are shown. Click on the down arrow found above the list and fill in the search variables. Remember to use the wildcard * as a search variable. Remember that some searches in SAP are case sensitive, so if you are unsure as to whether the first letter is uppercase of lowercase, just leave that letter out of your search parameters. If you are unsure of the table name, go to the screen holding the data. Right-click the field and then click on the Technical Info icon. Double-click on the Structure field - you should be able to see which "check table" is associated with the field. If you know the table that has to be configured, go to table maintenance area (SM30/SM31) and click on the "customizing" icon - after inserting the table name. This takes you to the IMG and to the step where the actual piece of configuration is carried out. You can select a project or just choose the skip option if you are unsure. Personnel Sub-Area: Complete View - V_001P_ALL Employee Group/Sub Group: Complete View - V_503_ALL Infotype Name Modifications: Table T582A. The changes will result in a warning message "Please do not make any changes: This is SAP data". You can, however, save the changes. Access the fast entry screen for data input using transaction code PA70. Pre-select using the report RPLFST00 which offers the usual SAP standard selection screen Batch input method: transaction code SM35 to progress the batch input session.

If you wish to delete more than one at a time, you can use the report RPUDELPN. If Sometimes you might not be able to delete an infotype for an employee using the delete button on the Infotype screen. Another way of doing this is to use the "delete personnel number" from the main screen of PA30. Once all the Infotypes are brought up you can just select the appropriate infotypes and delete those.

The lock entry list shows you the users who are locking the entry, the time when the lock was initiated, the table that was locked as well as the locked records. If possible, ask the user to logoff first before deleting the locked. entries. For locking individual transactions code, used SM01.
