Each deliverable provides list of Outputs it consist of and Methods that are used to produce the deliverable.
  • 7. ©Copyright, ClearPathSAP, 2009 www.clearpathsap.com 877.960.CLEAR ClearPath SAP AcceleratedSAP Implementation Methodology Phase 1: Project Preparation During this phase the project is formally initiated and initial planning completed for the SAP solution implementation project. Phase 2: Business Blueprint The purpose of this phase is to gather business requirements and achieve a common understanding of how the company intends to run SAP to support their business. The result is the Business Blueprint, a detailed documentation of the results gathered during requirements workshops. Phase 3: Realization The purpose of this phase is to build & test the solution that meets the business requirements defined in the Business Blueprint. The system configuration is delivered in two deliverable groups: Baseline (core scope); and Final configuration (remaining scope). This is then followed by Integration Testing. Phase 4: Final Preparation The purpose of this phase is to complete the final preparation (including performance testing, end user training, system management and cutover activities) and gain authorization to cut over to new solution. The Final Preparation phase also serves to resolve all critical open issues. On successful completion of this phase, the business is ready to run with the new SAP based solution. Phase 5: Go Live & Support The purpose of this phase is to complete solution confirmation of the live productive solution and close the project with the business successfully running the new solution.
