SAP Solution Manager Project Management
SAP Solution Manager is integrated with the project management functions of SAP Portfolio and Project Management (SAP PPM), so you can manage, for example, project time, resources, and status.
Project management is integrated for the following areas of SAP Solution Manager: Solution Documentation | Change Request Management | Requirements Management
Project assignment: You can assign solution documentation and issue management entities to a project. Implementation: To start processing this task, you can create a request for change, a change document, or an IT requirement from a project task. Therefore, you can plan a new function before implementing it. Maintenance: You can create a project task from a request for change or a change document. This means that you can include smaller changes in your project planning and monitoring.
The integration of ITPPM allows you to do the following:
- Enrich your solution documentation in SAP Solution Manager (branches, landscapes, and change cycles) with project management capabilities
- Reflect business requirements in projects
- Manage planning, timing, structuring, and coordinating of resources for a project in detail
- Hand over your plans to realization. With time and status feedback, you can monitor the progress and resource consumption of your project.
- Monitor the issues belonging to your project
The following scenarios are supported:
Project assignment: You can assign solution documentation and issue management entities to a project.
Implementation: To start processing this task, you can create a request for change, a change document, or an IT requirement from a project task. Therefore, you can plan a new function before implementing it. You can also assign existing transactions to a task.
Maintenance: You can create a project task from a request for change or a change document. This means that you can include smaller changes in your project planning and monitoring.
Project management without integration into other SAP Solution Manager capabilities.
When you assign projects, the following rules apply:
You can assign one or more projects to a branch, landscape, or change cycle. The relationship is always n:1.
You can assign only one request for change, one IT requirement, or change document to one project task. The relationship is always 1:1.
You can assign only one project task to one request for change. The relationship is always 1:1
Not every project type can be assigned to every branch, landscape or change cycle. The supported combinations of project types are defined in the setup.
Successful organizations are those that can maximize business value, achieve balance, and align their overall portfolio with strategic objectives.
SAP Portfolio and Project Management application helps you deliver on this, and help you deliver on it more effectively.
