  • 6. 1 Getting Started1.1 Purpose of This DocumentThis master guide provides a central starting point for the technical implementation of enhancementpackages for SAP ERP. It outlines the basic idea of the enhancement package concept and gives anoverview of the implementation procedure.NOTEThis document focuses on enhancement package 6.Ensure that you use at the minimum SP01 of EHP6 for productive usage. Any mentioning ofenhancement package 6 in this document refers to EHP6, SP01.To ensure a smooth technical implementation, this guide helps you to find further information andlinks to related documents that outline business processes, scenarios, and software units. Getting aclear picture of the implementation procedure helps you to plan and prepare all required steps of yourproject. Keep in mind that additional software dependencies, which are not explicitly mentioned inthis document, might exist. These dependencies are visible in the Upgrade Dependency Analyzer tool,available at http://service.sap.com/uda.In the different phases of your enhancement package implementation project, different documentsand sources of information are relevant.Structure of the GuideThis Master Guide consists of the following main sections:�ëGçvw Chapter 2 — SAP Enhancement Packages for SAP ERP [page 7] gives a general overview and providesinformation on the delivery architecture and the structure of the SAP ERP software. The key factssummarize important rules and guidelines. This chapter helps you to understand theenhancement package concept and the software component design. It is essential to becomefamiliar with both so that you can set up in-depth planning for an implementation project.�ëGçvw Chapter 3 — Main Implementation Processes and Related Documentation [page 29] gives an overview of thedifferent implementation processes and how to plan for them. The chapter describes the requiredsteps for each of the different processes and provides links to the related documentation.�ëGçvw The Appendix [external document] gives an overview of generic tools for your implementationproject as well as information on the system landscape.. The appendix also contains links toadditional resources and information.1 Getting Started1.1 Purpose of This Document2012-05-16 PUBLIC 5/58

  • 8. 2 SAP Enhancement Packages for SAPERP6.02.1 Enhancement Package Key ConceptWehaveadaptedourmajorreleasestrategytobetterfityouradoptioncycle.Toensurethatyoubenefitfrom new developments and innovations while minimizing the impact on your core operationalsystems, SAP uses enhancement packages to speed up the delivery of new functions.With SAP enhancement packages, you can install and activate new functions depending on yourbusiness needs without having to perform a system upgrade.You can selectively implement the new functions and activate the software upon business demand. Asa result, you can isolate the impact of software updates and make new functions available faster due toshortened test cycles.ImplementationThere are three different scenarios to implement an enhancement package:¦«bINb Installation of an enhancement package on an existing SAP system (update)¦«bINb New installation of an SAP system including an enhancement package (installation)¦«bINb Upgrade of an SAP system including an enhancement package (upgrade)To implement new business functions you carry out the following two steps:¦«bINb Technical installation of an enhancement package¦«bINb Activation of business functions using the switch framework technologyYou have a choice on both levels – installation and activation. You do not need to install a fullenhancement package. Instead, you can update the software components that are related to thefunctional enhancements you want to use.NOTEKeep in mind that you cannot mix the installation of different enhancement package versions inyour ABAP-based SAP system. You can have just one enhancement package version in the SAPsystem.From a business point of view, functional enhancements are grouped into business functions (BFs).The technical installation of the business functions does not change the system behavior. The newfunctions are available in the system, but are not active. After the installation, no user interface orprocess change takes place. You must explicitly activate new functions so that they become visible in2 SAP Enhancement Packages for SAP ERP6.02.1 Enhancement Package Key Concept2012-05-16 PUBLIC 7/58
  • 9. the system. As a result, changes are predictable and there are no side effects as only the activated areaschange.With the switch framework technology (transaction SFW5), it is possible to control the activation ofnew SAP objects in ABAP-based SAP systems. The activation process triggers a background job thatautomatically performs all changes in the SAP system.CAUTIONYou cannot reverse most business function once they are activated. Due to technical restrictions,only a limited number of business functions are reversible.After you have activated a business function, you can see the changes and new developments in theSAP system, for example:ŽÛKï9• Menu entriesŽÛKï9• New screensŽÛKï9• New fields on the application user interfacesŽÛKï9• IMG activities required for the implementationŽÛKï9• New table entries in Customizing tables and system tablesYou can create a transport request with the current settings of the switch framework. You can checkfunctionalchangesandtheimpactofanactivatedbusinessfunctioninadvanceinthebusinessfunctiondocumentation.RECOMMENDATIONTest the installation and activation on a sandbox system.MaintenanceSAP enhancement packages have Support Packages of their own that are equivalent to the SupportPackage versions of the underlying SAP system. We highly recommend installing the enhancementpackage in combination with the latest available Support Package stack. This approach reducesinstallation, modification adjustment, and testing effort. Using this strategy, you can install SAPenhancement packages as a normal maintenance activity together with Support Package stacks.An enhancement package requires a specific Support Package stack level in the source release SAPsystem.NOTEIf the SAP system is on a lower Support Package stack level, all relevant Support Package stacksfor the EHP installation are automatically included into the download queue by theMaintenance Optimizer, as well as the latest available Support Packages for the enhancementpackage.ToolsThe enhancement package installation requires the following tools:2 SAP Enhancement Packages for SAP ERP6.02.1 Enhancement Package Key Concept8/58 PUBLIC 2012-05-16

A technical usage tells you whichsoftware component must be installed in your SAP ERP 6.0 system. The main instancetells you where to install it, in the ABAP or Java part of your system. The technical usagecan also include content for a SAP Portal or SAP NetWeaver Exchange Insfrastructure(SAP NetWeaver XI) system.*˝�µ�ð Main Instances and Software ComponentsA software component is the smallest maintainable unit within the SAP software model; thus, thebasis for support packages. For installation purposes, a software component is assigned to one orseveral product instances.

The selection is driven by the functionalneed from a business point of view.�öHÛ.Û You cannot mix the installation of different enhancement package versions in your ABAP-basedSAP system. You can have just one enhancement package version in the SAP system. This means,if you have already updated technical usages to a previous EHP you need to apply the current EHPto those components as well.�öHÛ.Û SAP enhancement packages are cumulative, meaning that each new enhancement packageincludes new innovations of its own as well as all innovations delivered with prior packages.�öHÛ.Û We recommend installing the latest available enhancement package version.�öHÛ.Û Install enhancement packages and Support Packages in one single step (this includes thepreconditioned Support Packages).�öHÛ.Û SAPenhancementpackageshaveSupportPackagesoftheirownthatareequivalenttotheSupportPackage versions of the underlying SAP system.�öHÛ.Û SAPenhancementpackageshavethesamemaintenanceperiodastheunderlyingcoreapplication.�öHÛ.Û The installation of an enhancement package is irreversible.�öHÛ.Û As long as you do not activate a business function, the installation of an enhancement package hasno impact on existing business processes or user interfaces.You can only activate business functions in ABAP-based systems, not in Java-based SAP systems.�öHÛ.Û The activation of most business functions and extension sets is irreversible. Only a small numberof business functions is reversible.Test the installation process and activation of new functions in advance on a sandbox system.Ensure that you evaluate the runtime and the SAP system behavior, its dependencies and impacts.Make sure that your SAP system is free of errors before going live.2.5 Technical Changes in SAP Enhancement Package 6 forSAP ERP 6.0This section gives an overview of the technical changes in the latest enhancement package version:�öHÛ.Û Use of SAP Solution Manager is mandatory2 SAP Enhancement Packages for SAP ERP6.02.4 Key Facts About Enhancement Packages18/58 PUBLIC 2012-05-16
