  • New approach to address project managers
  • xRPM
  • Resource and Program Management

    Project
  • (comparison follows)
  • Deep integration to other modules (CO, HR, FI

WBS-Elements, Networks, Sub-Networks, Internal
Tasks, External Tasks, Cost-Tasks, Service-Tasks,
Work Centers, Milestones, Persons ...
Tasks, Summary tasks, Milestones, Resources,
documents, issues and risks (SharePoint)
Objects
Over all company Projects, Summarizations,
integration with company Controlling
Easy to create, powerful graphics, OLAP, over all
projects, role based
Reports
Integration with Office (VBA, OLE), SQL (ODBC,
ADO, DAO), PDS, XML, SOAP, SharePoint, Exchange
etc.
Integration with all other SAP-Modules CO, SD, MM
etc. External interfaces RFC, BAPI, Java,
Integration
11
SAP PS vs. MSP (3/3)
SAP PS
Project 2002/2003
Gantt Chart, Network, WBS-Structure, but fussy
and complicated
Powerful and easy to use graphical Features
Graphical views
Connection to SAP System mandatory, hard
restricted
Independent, flexible, easy to use
Flexibility
Graphical, but complex Navigation, very hard to
learn and use
Very user friendly, intuitive
GUI
Editing
Rule-based, restricted
Enterprise restrictions
12
cProjects
  • Part of PLM (Product LifeCycle Management)
  • Next Generation of PS
  • Linked to PS and other modules

13
xRPM
  • Top Level consolidation
  • Integrates data from different sources
  • Reporting, Portfolio planning and resource
    capacity management

14
xRPM Architecture Overview
SAP Enterprise Portal 5.0
SAP xRPM Core
SAP Business Warehouse

Using SAP PM solutions
  • Pros
  • Rich functionality
  • Detailed, status based business rules
  • Company wide, controlling integrated reports
  • High Level Consolidation
  • Cons
  • User interface still not adopted
  • Not flexible enough (e.g. work offline, user
    defined customizing)
  • Enterprise features not easy to use (esp. for
    PMOs)
  • EPM scenarios difficult to deploy

16
Best fit for roles
17
Putting the pieces together
Microsoft Project EPM Server (diff departments,
sites etc.)
SAP R/3 / Enterprise with PS or cProjects (e.g.
diff. country locations)
PMO Project Manager Team Member
Manager Controller Dep. Leader

Integration
19
SAP integration issues
  • Leading PM system
  • SAP or Microsoft Office Project?
  • Which data are controlled on which system?
  • Automatic or manual synchronization?
  • Who is working on which system (roles based
    concept)
  • How do the components interact with each other?

20
Server-based data exchange
PSLink
  • Central Project data store
  • Holds SAP Difference Analysis Tables
  • Holds Defaults/Standards
  • Difference analysis
  • Locking mechanism
  • Consistency check
  • Business Rules
  • Status Administration
  • SAP selection lists
  • Controlling data
  • SAP-Budget data

21
Client-based data exchange
PSLink
  • Central Project data store
  • Hosts SAP Difference-Analysis-Tables
  • Hosts Defaults/Standards
  • Business Rules
  • Status admin
  • SAP selection lists
  • Controlling data
  • SAP-Budget data
  • Difference analysis
  • Locking mechanism
  • Consistency check

22
PSLink Enterprise Server vs. client based
synchronization
  • Server based
  • No direct user-interaction with SAP
  • Synchronization can be scheduled
  • Less components and functions are needed on
    client PCs (however, some functions are required)
  • Client based
  • Transfer data on command if necessary
  • Data exchange control
  • User-based changes in SAP (evidence)
  • Better data consistency (avoid last-wins
    situations)

23
Example 1 Project oriented organization
Engineering
24
Overview
  • Create project in Microsoft Project based on SAP
    SD Offer
  • Upload project to SAP PS
  • Project execution
  • Planning of tasks, schedule and resources in MSP
  • Cost Planning and task tracking in SAP
  • Automatic over night synchronization with SAP PS
    and SD
