    The implementation of your SAP System covers the following phases:

    <b>Project Preparation</b>

    In this phase you plan your project and lay the foundations for successful implementation.

    It is at this stage that you make the strategic decisions crucial to your project:

       Define your project goals and objectives 
       Clarify the scope of your implementation 
       Define your project schedule, budget plan, 
              and implementation sequence 
       Establish the project organization and relevant
              committees and assign resources

    <b>Business Blueprint</b>

    In this phase you create a blueprint using the Question & Answer database (Q&Adb),

    which documents your enterprise’s requirements and establishes how your business processes

    and organizational structure are to be represented in the SAP System.

    You also refine the original project goals and objectives and revise the overall project

    schedule in this phase.


    In this phase, you configure the requirements contained in the Business Blueprint.

    Baseline configuration (major scope) is followed by final configuration (remaining scope),

    which can consist of up to four cycles. Other key focal areas of this phase are conducting

    integration tests and drawing up end user documentation.

    <b>Final Preparation</b>

    In this phase you complete your preparations, including testing, end user training,

    system management, and cutover activities.

    You also need to resolve all open issues in this phase.

    At this stage you need to ensure that all the prerequisites for your system

    to go live have been fulfilled.

    <b>Go Live & Support</b>

    In this phase you move from a pre-production environment to the live system.

    The most important elements include setting up production support, monitoring system transactions

    and optimizing overall system performance.


    For more information on ASAP methodology,



    you can download the ASAP documents from service market place.


    For login you require an OSS userid.


    hope this helps!


    best regards,

    SAP Full life cycle also known as SAP FLC.

    This means a full SAP implementation is going on from legacy system.

    This project includes SAp implementation, master data conversion and live data/orders conversion as well.

    A full life cycle may or may not include more than one modules in SAP, but in most cases there are more than one modules get implement.

    ASAP Methodology is a way to implement SAP in a structured way. SAP itself provides some defined steps so implementation gets more smoother and can identify milestones.
