    RICEF stands for Reports, Interfaces, Conversions, Enhancements, Forms.

    R - Reports

    R refers report programming. Of course, firstly classical report programming, WRITE statement; then it means ALV programming with either ALV function modules or ABAP objects.

    I - Interfaces

    Interfaces are ALE / IDOC developments. Not only development, ABAP programming for IDOCs, also IDOC customization, management. I think it might refers EDI too.

    C - Conversion

    I think conversions means BDC programming, batch input function modules, BDCDATA structure, CALL TRANSACTION. Maybe conversion specifically refers conversion programs for standard batch input programs. Even we can say it refers LSMW.

    E - Enhancements

    Enhancements are user-exits and the object oriented model of user-exits that is BADIs.

    F - Forms

    Forms are SAPscript forms, SAPscript print programs, and SmartForms.
