      Dear Atif,

       

      No, I want to ask about What are the One-Time Activities that we need to perform directly into Production Client in FI/CO - during Go-Live?

       

      Example: Number Ranges Creation, since they cant be transported, like that their are near about 7-8 activities, what are they?

      You can say these as part of your cut over activities.

            Before Go-live you have to run the cost estimate for materials as It will cost all materials based on the price either "S" standard or "V" moving average, although it is CO part but you have to run before Go-live. This is the one most important process to be run.

            HI Nimish,

             

            On the production client, you need to manually enter the number ranges, tax codes, addresses of company codes and plants where ever applicable, you have to manually activate the operating concern, since you can transport the activation, you need to maintain the plan activity allocation, you need to run KP26 and KP06 planning and etc.

             

            I hope this solves you query.

             

            Thanks,

            Sravan K

            Hi Nimish,

             

            Apart from what some of our experts have already identified the following are some other activities:

             

            1.   Maintain Tax codes (FTXP).

            2.   No. Ranges for FI documents (FBN1 / OBH1 / OBH2).

            3.   Opening posting periods (OB52).

            4.   Maintain no. ranges for Asset Masters across Company Codes (AO11).

            5.   Specify Asset take over date (ORFA).

            6.   Specify last posted depreciation in legacy system (OAYC).

            7.   Define Foreign Exchange Rates (OB08).

            8.   Setting initial posting period (OMSY). Required if MM is implemented.

            9.   CO number ranges (KANK). Required if it is newly setup.

            10. COPA Derivation Rules (KEDR).

             

            Coverage of each an every aspect of cut-over activities may not be possible as they are dependant on the practices and policies of the client. You can refer this whole thread which covers most of the areas in general.
