IT systems are to be introduced in the companies of a plant engineering group in order to support sales and distribution; these IT systems are based on SAP R/3 SD. The application is to be rolled out and expanded in stages.
The SD functions are based on previously implemented functions for editing quotations and orders and for invoicing. In addition to the maintenance transactions, the ABAP List Viewer provides interactive evaluations, in particular.
In plant engineering, an object- or project-related view is particularly important, as well as the customer-oriented view; from this object- or project-related view, various partner roles can be accessed (e.g. prospective customer, planner, constructor).
