    • SAP Portfolio and Project Management. Rapid-deployment solution for portfolio analysis.
    • This solution lets you effectively manage projects and resources to help ensure the projects are on time and on budget. In this demonstration,
    • you'll see how the solution helps you analyze your project investment portfolio to enhance project management and analyze your product portfolio to improve product lifecycle management.
    • Analyze your project investment portfolio. Michael is VP of operations at an electronics manufacturer. He logs into the portal to assess the overall health of his company's investment portfolio.
    • In the "Capital Selection" dashboard, he sees a high-level overview of the investment projects. The default view has four standard fields, and he can change these by selecting "Choose Fields."
    • Michael wants to look into the company's capital investments in China. He can choose the "project" button to monitor the specific projects he needs to analyze in that region.
    • In the top-right quadrant, he can choose two different kinds of graphs. The first tab, gives an overview on the net present value versus risk for all the projects.
    • The second tab shows an overview on the expected commercial value versus the probability of technical success.
    • The bubbles represent the projects with size showing the total requested budget and color showing the item's status.
    • Quadrants three and four provide analysis based on budget versus cost, and on capacity versus demand for the available projects.
    • Here, he can get a detailed view of financial and capacity planning data for the items in the first quadrant. He can choose the time period he wants to review.
    • With the "force-in" functionality, he can add must-do projects to the portfolio selection. If Michael edits the budgets and capacity data, the graphs will change accordingly.
    • The forced-in projects are highlighted in a different color as shown in the bar charts at the bottom. Now, Michael wants to see the status of all the projects running based on different metrics.
    • This dashboard gives him an "at-a-glance" view of the portfolio's schedule and budget performance. The first quadrant has two parts: the top shows the number of items in different phases of decision.
    • The bottom shows key performance indicators - KPIs - from a different view of the portfolio - across SAP Portfolio and Project Management and project systems software.
    • When he changes the portfolio performance options in quadrant one, the other quads change accordingly. He can choose to see the top ̶̶̶ or bottom -- ten items by using the radio buttons in quad two.
    • That way, he'll see the top -- or bottom -- ten items with schedule variance -- or cost variance value extracted from project systems software.
    • Now, Michael wants to review the financial performance of the project portfolio. The first quadrant shows him an aggregated view of the financial planning analysis data by period.
    • At the top, he sees a standard view of the data according to budget, planned cost, actual cost, and unassigned costs.
    • At the bottom, he sees the data in a category that was customized by his company. When he selects an amount type in the top part, the list of views in the lower part and in quadrant two are updated.
    • When he selects a category in the lower part, quadrants 3 and 4 are updated.
    • Michael now takes a closer look at the "unassigned" category and sees the relevant data below in categories that his company customized. Quadrants 3 and 4 give him a graphical view of that data.
    • When he changes the category for unassigned data, the graphical views in the lower quadrants are updated.
    • He can quickly compare the values in the lower part of the main table by looking at the display in quadrant 2. And, he can choose to see the cumulated values.
    • Finally, Michael wants to check his capacity, so he opens the capacity planning analysis dashboard.
    • This looks just like the financial planning dashboard, so Michael can quickly find the information he needs.
    • Analyze your product portfolio. Dennis is VP of engineering at an electronics manufacturer.
    • The rapid-deployment solution helps him improve product portfolio performance, identify problems early, and keep an eye on KPIs that address budget and cycle times.
    • The dashboard gives him a high level view of his product portfolio across the organization. At the top left is a table tracking the various KPIs that are reflected in the other quadrants.
    • It shows a list of KPIs for the chosen time period, the value of the KPI, and how that indicator is trending.
    • The KPIs are displayed in three tables: the first shows the lifecycle of portfolio items and projects, the second shows cost versus revenue,
    • launch timeliness and budget percentage, and the third shows the number of engineering changes, the number of quality notifications, and the average cycle time to process them.
    • If Dennis were to select new items in the first quad, the related views in the second, third, and fourth quads would be updated.
    • Right now, Dennis has the table set up to see a graphical view of time-to-market in quad 2, with the top -- or bottom-- 5 items of this KPI.
    • He's selected "R&D cost per amount of revenue" in the first quadrant, so that metric appears in the graph in quad three.
    • If he selected "Engineering Changes" in quad one, quad 4 would show the number of Engineering Records created for the products with this filter criteria.
    • Dennis could then filter by product using the dropdown menu in the fourth quadrant. Now Dennis needs to know the current performance of the projects that are already released.
    • Here, he gets a detailed view of product quality performance and can investigate engineering changes and quality notifications, including the number, cycle time, and status.
    • He can review by an analysis of engineering changes or by quality notifications in the top half of the dashboard.
    • He can look at KPIs for engineering changes in terms of item category, change type, reason for change, and change items.
    • He can see the information in a table at the left and in a pie chart at the right. When he chooses the "Reason for Change" tab, the table and chart display that information.
    • At the bottom, Dennis can review engineering change status and cycle time KPIs. Just like the view above, the information appears in a table at the left and a pie chart at the right.
    • Now Dennis chooses the quality notifications tab at the top. The tabs at the right let him see the quality notification processing volume.
    • Each tab shows him the aggregated total for the given category in a table at the left and a pie chart at the right. At the bottom, he can see the notification status and cycle time KPIs.
    • The data is displayed in a table at the left and a pie chart at the right. Finally, Dennis wants to view project performance from financial, schedule, and staffing perspectives.
    • This dashboard helps him determine what project phases and tasks have the best -- and the worst -- performance.
    • The first quadrant shows the total number of items and projects, and how many are started or overdue. Any changes Dennis makes here will impact quadrants 2 and 4.
    • In quadrant 2, he can view a bubble chart of KPIs. These are KPIs of the projects in the phase that's selected, or of all projects if no phase is selected.
    • The bubble size represents the total requested budget of the linked item, and the color is determined by the item status.
    • The 3rd quadrant shows him the schedule, budget, and staffing situation in a pie chart, as well as different views of the worst projects.
    • The company's systems administrator can customize the thresholds for each of these categories. Quad 4 shows the schedule status of phases and tasks based on the selections in the first quadrant.
    • Because Dennis has selected 'Total' in quad 1, quad 4 shows the overdue days of phases or tasks of all projects.
    • If he chooses a project phase, the view in quad 4 will change to show the overdue days for the selected phase.
