  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • improving project management effectiveness.
  • In this demo, you'll see how the SAP Business ByDesign solution
  • enables you to improve project management effectiveness,
  • positively impact project delivery,
  • and run projects more profitably.
  • In this example, project manager Bob Menson logs on to
  • SAP Business ByDesign to open and manage a new project.
  • In the project management work center, Bob selects the project view
  • and opens a new project from the drop-down menu.
  • This action opens a new project window.
  • In the project type field, he selects research and development from the drop-down list.
  • In the source field, he selects template and clicks next.
  • Bob has a prior research and development project
  • that will be used as the template for his new project.
  • Using this template, Bob can define the project;
  • notice that SAP Business ByDesign automatically generates a project id number.
  • If he prefers, Bob can assign his own project id.
  • The project name and start date are automatically populated from a previous screen.
  • So Bob enters a description for the new project
  • and selects himself as the person responsible.
  • The responsible unit field will populate automatically based on Bob’s profile.
  • He’ll complete the next two steps later, so he skips them,
  • and clicks finish to complete the project setup.
  • Next Bob will plan the project structure using phases, tasks, and milestones.
  • To begin setting up the project, Bob highlights his project in the list, clicks the edit button,
  • and selects project plan.
  • This takes him to the maintain project window where he can edit various aspects of the project.
  • Bob wants to delegate a particular phase of the project to a colleague,
  • so he selects the product requirement specification phase from the Gantt chart.
  • Bob clicks on the basic data tab, locates the person responsible field,
  • and from the pop-up list, selects Kate Jacob.
  • In addition to creating and delegating tasks, Bob also needs to
  • plan certain expenditures for the product requirement specification phase.
  • To do this, Bob clicks on the expenses tab and in the expense field,
  • he selects travel lodging from the pop-up menu.
  • In the adjacent planned expenses field, Bob enters 1,000
  • and selects “USD” from the currency option and clicks save.
  • Bob also needs to add a task – so he clicks the add button and selects
  • task from the drop down list.
  • He highlights where he wants to add a row and clicks the indent button.
  • To define this new task, Bob selects the basic data tab and in the project-task name field,
  • he enters “specify,” and “15 days” in the duration field.
  • To complete the creation of this task, Bob clicks on the work tab.
  • In the service field, he selects development from the drop down list and enters 100 hours
  • in the planned work field.
  • Bob has defined the project successfully so he clicks save and close.
  • As you have seen, the SAP Business ByDesign solution simplifies project management tasks
  • so you can improve project management effectiveness,
  • positively impact project delivery, and run projects more profitably.
