Few of critical issues in Implementation.


1 . Ensure 100% mapping of business process for all modules with SAP(avoid customization
in support phase)
2. Unit & Integration testing should be through with all validations
3. Master datas (Vendor, Customer) care must be taken will uploading datas thru LSMW,
If there are common vendors for all plants, Create a vendor for a plant extend it to other
4. Check tax procedures are customized according to requirements.
5. Complete all print document customizations before go live
6. Complete end user training (2 or more cycles) should be top priority before go live(This
will avoid
Cancellation/reversal of documents after post go live)
7. Ready with standard MIS reports & customized reports for business decision making
8. Excise opening balance updation in tables for RG1 register in tables (Note 951955) on go
9. Check all tables datas are updating correctly
10. Declare go live to SAP Support
11. Check All user authorization should be correct according to their roles.
12. Centeralize all master datas creation (avoid duplication)
13. Create transaction variants to avoid entires in unnecessary fields & make certain fields
14. Ensure document numbering is completed for all documents
15. Validate accounting entries are hit properly according to requirement in quality client with
FI CTM(Core team member).

After Go live :

1. Missing authorization for users will play key part here, For ex: PGI while doing delivery,
Excise capture & post in MIGO/J1IEX.
2. Do internal audit every month, identify transactions if there will possibility for misuse or
wrong entries, requires validation, identify users weak in certain areas.
3. Identify there is enhancements to be done in transaction process(By step-2)
4. Prepare a list of month & year end activities to be performed for all modules give to users
5. Prepare a list of frequently used transaction codes module wise give it to users
6. If there is subcontracting, ensure challan creation,GR,reconcillation should be done
7. Train the users, take reports in respective modules.
8. Additional customization might be done in print documents.
9. Instruct users/CTM's to adapt SAP Standard practise
10. Update excise tax rates after every Indian budget

Key challenges in implementation and various material

master issues
The question is being answered on a very broad level. The key challenges differ from

commonality. They are not necessarily in order.

1. Challenges related to Business Processes

2. Challenges related to Technical issue
3. Challenges related to Change Management (People Management)
4 Challenges related to Project Management and Methodologies.
5 Challenges related to Master Data
6 Challenges related to Training

On Business processes -Defining to be process, Acceptance of the new process by the Client,
Local, regulatory and statutory requirements affecting the Process
Availability of client team for process mapping, Reluctance to change and so on...

On Technical side: Challanges run from infrastructure (Server/Connectivity) Inadequate,

Networking not Ok, Landscapr design not ok and so on

Change management: User awareness and participation is a key issue. Managing the fears
and resistance to change is another challenge

Project Management: some of the issues -Project governance not happening, Change
management not satisfactory, and scope creep. KPI not monitored.

Master Data: Too many files, Redunanat data, no ownership of Data, Technical and functional
validation ownership

Training: Language, Understanding of the users, Content

Material Master Data challenges:

1. Selection and finalisation of the views

2. Responsibility matrix for each view.

3. Field mapping into must have, desirable, nice to have fields
4 Technical validations of the data
5 Functional validations of the data
6 Material masters upload file format
7 Data Cleansing
All these points need to be considered
