Business Challenge: Client has had SAP for 2.5 years. SAP project was to review and reevaluate the current design that has been implemented and to perform a formal Gap Analysis for 2 affiliate companies that are considering migrating to SAP. Client wanted to adopt best practices and standard SAP processes, wherever possible. Also included in project, was the formal Gap Analysis for 2 affiliate companies (both are Aerospace and Defense manufacturing companies). These companies are currently on 2 different non-SAP ERP systems and this project involved a systematic analysis of all current processes and the blueprinting and prototyping of how processes will be utilized in SAP. The goal was to develop as many common processes across all three companies.
PDB Approach: Systematically evaluated all the processes that have been implemented in the FI (General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Asset Management) PP, ECM/DM modules and made recommendations for improving and streamlining the current implemented design. This included prototyping any changes to the design and writing detailed blueprint documents for the changes.
