    Cutover Activities or Master Data Uploading Strategies Depending upon the when we are going live.  As per that, you have to give the information to your core team.  If you goling live at the middle you have to upload the all P&L Account items and B/S Items.  If you going live at the financial year start, you have to only Upload the B/S Items. Activities for Golive: 


    1.   G/L Master Upload Thru BDC or LSMW (TC-Fs00 and extended one co code to another company code Fs01)

    2.   Vendor Master Upload Thru BDC Or LSMW (Will be Taken Care By MM) 

    3.   Customer Master Upload Thru BDC or LSMW (Will be Taken Care By SD) 

    4.   Asset Master Upload(Thru As90) 

    5.   Cost Element Master Upload 

    6.   Cost Center Master Upload 

    7.   Profit Center Master Upload 

    8.   G/L Balances Thru F-02 

    10. Vendor Balances thru F-43 

    11. Customer Balances thru F-22 

    12. Customer Advances thru f-29 

    13. Vendor Advances thryu F-48


    Before uploading Vendor Balances you have to take care of WHT(TDS) Information.

    Cutover is The process of transitioning from one system to a new one

    Cut over Plan is All documentation related to planning, preparing and executing cutover, describing how to lock down the system from a technical change management perspective, preparing the the system for its new role and rolling out the SAP graphical user interface to all future end users.


    CUTOVER PLAN describes all cutover tasks that have to be performed before the actual go-live

    Examples of cutover tasks are:

    Review and update all systems-related operations procedures like backup policies and system monitoring

    Assign ownership of SAPu2019s functional processes to individuals

    Let SAP AG do a GoingLive check, to get their blessing to go live with the system

    Lock down the system, i.e. do not make any more changes to the SAP system


    Planning the Master data Migration Process is also a Cutover Task.


    Thanks & Regards
