  5. 5. Introduction - Project Systems What is a Project? A temporary endeavor undertaken to create an unique product or service, as a result that a company carries out, characterized by the uniqueness of its general conditions and constraints. These conditions include, Objectives of the project Time frame for executing it Financial and capacity-related restrictions SAP PS SAP PS is a project management tool that assists you throughout all the phases of your project. Through the high level of integration between SAP PS and other SAP functions, such as Logistics, Accounting, and Human Resources, SAP PS ensures that the necessary business processes are handled quickly and efficiently. Projects usually involve cross- departmental and highly complex business processes. Projects are often cost-intensive, time- consuming, and of strategic importance. Project Constraints

  15. 15. To carry end to end process of a project, the project goals must be defined and activities to be carried out must be structured. A clearly defined structured project is the basis for its planning, monitoring, control and success. Project Structures Depending on the type of project and the monitoring needs, projects in the Project System can be structured using: Work breakdown structure (WBS) We can use either Operative Projects or Standard projects for structuring the Project. Standard WBS and standard networks allow you to standardize and reuse structures and sequences of events in a project. Networks/Activities

  17. 17. Work Breakdown Structure WBS Elements A work breakdown structure is a model of a project, and shows the project activities to be carried out as a hierarchical structure there by split the project into manageable units. You can define WBS hierarchy based on: Logic and Process oriented Function Oriented Object Oriented WBS divides the project step-by-step into structure elements, these elements are called work breakdown structure elements (WBS Elements). The various work packages in the project are described in individual work breakdown structure elements (WBS elements). You can further divide these elements at various levels until you reach the level of detail you require.

  31. 31. System Status SYSTEM STATUS The following status are set by the system/user as the project progress through different stages: CRTD Created (Automatic) REL Released (Manual) LKD Locked (Manual) UNLK Unlock (Manual) BUDG Project Budgeted (Automatic) AVAC Availability Control Activated (Automatic)
  32. 32. A status set by the user to complement the system status for a given status object. You can use only a user status belonging to a status profile (defined in Customizing) and assigned to the relevant status object. User statuses enable you to extend the control of business processes managed by the system status. You can set and delete user statuses manually when carrying out business transactions. WBS User Status In the following steps you add the system status provided by SAP to your user status. You can define a user status for: Project_definitions WBS elements Network headers and network activities
  33. 33. Created (CRTD) Use Initial system status for new WBS elements Allows project structuring, date and cost planning. Allows Budgeting Prerequisites The superior WBS element MUST have status Created Released (REL) Use Allows costs and revenues to be posted to the project Passed onto lower level WBS elements Prerequisites Created must have been set CREATED RELEASED System Status (1)
  34. 34. Technically Complete (TECO) Use For projects completed from a technical point of view. Allows costs and revenues to be posted to the project. Prerequisites Created or Released must have been set. Closed (CLSD) Use Prevents actual postings. Prevents network creation. Prerequisites Released or Technically complete must have been set. TECHNICALLY COMPLETE FLAGGED FOR DELETION CLOSED Deletion Flag (DLFL) Use Objects are deleted logically, but not physically. Prerequisites Allowed if all costs have been settled completely. Allowed if there are no reservations or commitments. System Status (2)

  36. 36. Networks and Activities Network / Activities Networks A network represents the flow of a project or of a task within a project. During the life of a project, networks are used as a basis for planning, analyzing, controlling and monitoring schedules, dates and resources (such as people, machines, materials, documents and drawings). You can assign networks to a project. A network is a special type of work order that has the same structure as production orders, maintenance orders, and inspection orders in the System. Activities Individual tasks in the project are mapped as activities in a network. Activities having the following characteristics: They have a duration. They have a defined start and a defined finish. Resources are needed to execute them. They incur costs.

  54. 54. Standard Structures Be defining standard projects and networks you can standardize project management referring back to data that has been derived from existing projects. Standardization is one method of ensuring in the initial phase that projects are structured efficiently and economically. A further advantage of standardizing project structures is that it makes the processing of projects more transparent, enables the comparison of projects and subsequently facilitates project controlling. In the Project System there are several different standard structures that you can use as templates to create operative structures. Standard project definitions Standard networks Standard work breakdown structures Standard milestones
  55. 55. Standard Structures (Cont..) Standard project definitions Neutral project definition, which can be used to create operative project definitions or standard project definitions as templates. Project definitions are the frameworks of projects and contains basic Organizational data i. e. Controlling Area Business area Company code Plant Factory calendar Standard networks Project-neutral network structure, which can be used as a template when creating other standard networks or operative networks. Creating operative networks by using standard networks will save the time and increase the consistency of business process. You can link standard networks with standard work breakdown structures in order to create project templates, which contain both the project structure and the activities assigned to the structure.
  56. 56. From Standard Networks While creating operative network using standard network, if the standard Network is linked to standard WBS, system will create operative WBS as well. 1 From Sale order 2 Creating operative network from Sales Order using standard Network, system will create operative Network with activities as standard Network and materials from sales order. From milestone 3 Creating operative Milestone from standard milestone system will create operative network from Standard Network which is attached to standard Milestone. = Operative Structure = Standard Structure = Direct Assignment = indirect Assignment Standard Structures (Cont..)
  57. 57. Standard work breakdown structures Neutral work breakdown structure that can be used more than once and serves as a template for creating operative work breakdown structures From Standard WBS While creating operative WBS from standard WBS, if WBS is linked with standard network, system will not create operative network 2WBS From Standard Networks While creating operative network using standard network, if the standard Network is linked to standard WBS, system will create operative WBS as well. 1 Standard milestones Standard milestones are used for creating milestones and other standard milestones. You can combine different standard Milestones in a milestone group. From milestone 3 Standard Structures (Cont..)
  58. 58. The Project Builder is a user-friendly method of accessing the Project System, which enables you to edit your projects quickly and efficiently. It gives the option of Context sensitive menus, Drag & Drop, and the capability to define your own worklist and templates pool. Use: Create, change or display all project structure data in one transaction Graphic views (hierarchy and network graphic) Project planning board with all its overviews (capacity, costs, component, and maintenance order overviews) Can define a user-specific worklist and a user-specific templates pool Can make user-specific changes to the settings Project Builder

  63. 63. Structure Planning Structure planning will be used if you have a more precise idea of the structure of the project. Using structure planning you can enter WBS elements and Activities together. Structure planning is having two views i.e. WBS elements Network activities Use: Create Projects and activities Maintain already created projects Analysis Capacity leveling Cost overviews as for activities
