    Hi Amol,


    First of all, i would advise you to upgrade your database to 11g as is out of maintenance by SAP soon.


    (2) Generate stack.xml via MOPZ, you need to have a solution manager EHP1 SP24.

    (3) Identify technical usage for your ERP system

    (4) Download all the SPs, Kernel and etc

    (5) Upgrade tool - EHPI


    For more technical info, you can refer to http://scn.sap.com/community/enhancement-packages/blog/2012/03/28/sapadmin-ehp-technical-checklist-best-practice-catalyst-to-a-successful-upgrade--part-i

    Hi Amol,


    First of all you have to decide on strategy on how you would be proceeding upgrade.


    i.e. by using Dual landscape or directly to original landscape.

    Then you have to evaluate and estimate testing strategy and plan.

    for your customized objects you have to extract list of objects needs remediation as post upgrade few of your functionalities might not work and needs advance planning to avoid any last minute shock to your management.


    so in short, for upgrade you need to do lots of planning, In previous responses against your query their is enough material you can download and read to perform planning.


    To have actual look and feel and understand the impact, you can plan a sandbox upgrade and ask functional team to perform pre and post upgrade testing and take their feedback that if they are comfortable with the changes. Also, involve ABAP team to perform remediation to any obsolete piece of code.


    Hope you got enough information to start with,


    Cheers and best of luck....
