c) Development of reusable wrapper class to send out emails
d) Generic utilities like ZOUTPUT, ZEMAIL mentioned above
e) Utility to track inactive users and notify them via email
Documentation of test cases and results
Preparation of testing approach documents for the user acceptance testing
Coordinating cut over, and hyper-care phases of a project
As the SD and LE documents at New Market were printed using print programs and SAP Scripts, which were around 14 years old, there was an initiative to convert them into smartforms. The objective of the smartform project was to re-design the SD documents not only from a look and feel and technical perspective, but also try and move towards a more standard configuration. The following documents were re-engineered globally.
• Order Acknowledgements (for orders and returns)
• Order Confirmations (for orders and returns)
• Invoices (for Invoices, Intercompany Invoices, Pro-forma, Cancellations, Credit Memo, Debit Memo)
• Bill of Lading documents on deliveries
• The look and feel of all documents was standardized header, footer and logos. Along with that, region specific requirements like paper size, postal requirements were also incorporated.
• The pricing procedures were changed to allow printing of different condition types as per sales org specific requirements. Condition records and Access sequences were changed as per the requirements.
• Custom logic was put in to combine batch split items and report them as a single item in the invoice.
• Language specific versions - Spanish, German, French and English were developed for output types used by Europe.
• The print outputs were printed in duplex mode, so that T&C's could be printed on the reverse. Email and Fax versions of the smartforms were simplex.
• SAP standard has VF31 for mass issue of billing documents, but there is no standard program to do a mass issue of sales or delivery documents. A custom utility, ZOUTPUT, was developed to do a mass issue of those output types.
• Similarly, SAP standard allows one to change the recipient printer and fax number while issuing an output. However, the recipient email ID cannot be changed at the time of issuing an output. A custom utility ZEMAIL was developed that would allow the users to issue an output type using a smartform to any generic email ID.
• There were a few other technical challenges like allowing a smartform to print regulatory text with INCLUDE commands, developing a workaround to the SAP standard Address node, so that address fields could be selectively replaced.
• During cut-over activities, maintained the output condition records of SD and LE modules.
• Developed a custom utility to track and email PO output internally within marketing team and externally to vendors. This would allow the user to email a PO output to oneself and supervisor before sending it out to the vendor.
• Developed requirement routine for a new calculation schema for Material Ledger project
• During the roll out of the consignment process
o Developed the custom version of MRKO settlement report (MR_PRINT SAP Script)
o Implemented BADI MRM_MRKO_HDAT_MODIFY to swap the PI and VN partners during MRKO settlement
o Developed a custom utility to account for late changes to pricing in consignment info records. The utility seamlessly interfaces to FICO and leaves the user in an FICO accounting document still changeable rather than directly posting.
o Consignment info record upload program – a BDC via ME12
• Contract price upload program – a BDC via ME32K
• Implementation of BADI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST to set fields for a particular PO type
• Developed a custom SAP Script for TO printing
