    • In this demonstration, you’ll see how the SAP Portfolio and Project Management application
    • integrates with other popular project management tools to help you plan, execute, and analyze complex projects.
    • This helps you plan and build critical assets in a transparent, timely, and cost-efficient manner.
    • Project planning.
    • Previously, we saw how Alan Hauser, Vice President of Portfolio Management at ABC Energy,
    • used the SAP Portfolio and Project Management application to plan and review proposals for a number of strategic initiatives.
    • After using the scorecard in the portfolio and project management software to compare the merits of the different proposals,
    • Alan has recommended moving forward with a project to expand ABC’s facilities in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
    • Using out-of-the-box features in the portfolio and project management application,
    • Alan created a complete project definition—including a detailed work breakdown structure—that can be used on the ground by ABC’s project managers.
    • Chuck Lee is the ABC project manager responsible for day-to-day planning and execution of the Sao Paulo project.
    • He uses the project system integrated with the portfolio and project management application to manage project planning and costing.
    • The entire project cost will be settled to an asset under construction.
    • As noted, when Alan Hauser created the project, the software automatically created a work breakdown structure, and Chuck can drill into the details easily.
    • For any given element, Chuck can see basic information, control information, administrative information, and more.
    • He can hide or expose subordinate elements, even drill down into the low-level procurement details.
    • Here, he can see the details associated with the purchase of new boilers. He can even change or update purchase details if he needs to.
    • Here, he looks at the activities associated with site analysis. When he selects the tab showing who’s been assigned to the task, he can see the details.
    • He can even make personnel and hourly assignments right on the screen.
    • And that’s not all—from the Project Builder screen he can take a network view of the project, an activity view, and more.
    • While Chuck uses the project system for project planning and costing, he needs to share these plans with teams in the field—many of which use Primavera P6.
    • So, Chuck can use the features of the integrated Enterprise Project Connection (EPC) to transfer a copy of his plans from Project System into P6.
    • As you can see, all the work breakdown structure elements from the project system have been transferred to P6,
    • which project managers in the field will use for schedule planning and updating.
    • As different teams complete tasks and enter status updates in P6, the SAP Enterprise Project Connection application
    • keeps the details in P6 synchronized with the project system which is integrated into the SAP Portfolio and Project Management application.
    • Here, a field manager changes the time budgeted for wind and capacity site analysis from 40 hours to 160 hours.
    • When saved in P6, and synchronized using the SAP Enterprise Project Connection application, the systems in the field and the systems in the enterprise will always be up to date.
    • This integration ensures that the activities in the field will be visible to people using the SAP Portfolio and Project Management Application within the portfolio management organization.
    • Project execution and analysis.
    • While the Sao Paulo project is underway, Chuck Lee can use the project system to record invoices and other materials related to the project.
    • Invoices can post automatically to the project accounting component of the project system.
    • He can also use the portfolio and project management application integrated with the project system to track the amount of time spent on project activities.
    • Hours can be entered using an online timesheet or, as shown here, in Adobe Interactive Forms that enable offline data capture and upload for accurate work and cost tracking.
    • Standard project reports will show real-time financial status of projects, such as this example report showing
    • planned, actual, and commitment costs by phase, task, and/or cost category or account.
    • Again, this ensures that the project and portfolio managers within the enterprise can keep tabs on the events taking place on the ground.
    • As you have seen, the SAP Portfolio and Project Management application integrates with other popular project management tools to help you plan, execute, and analyze complex projects.
    • It’s all part of a broad, integrated vision for portfolio and project management, one that connects the board room to the building site.
    • Yet project information is not just moving from the executive suite downward.
    • It also moves from the worksite back into the enterprise, ensuring that portfolio and project managers throughout the company can stay on top of their projects.
    • Click the link on the screen to see the fourth and final demonstration of this broad, integrated portfolio and project management solution from SAP.
