Invoice verification is an important business process in almost every company. In SAP you can verify invoices against purchase orders and goods receipts. SAP provides important functionalities like automatic account determination, financial posting, etc. SAP is powerful software that can meet the needs of any business scenario for any type of business in any part of the world. Its all encompassing nature makes SAP complex. In order to derive maximum benefit for business, SAP must be understood well. Mr. Agrawal attempts to explain SAP completely; a seemingly impossible task. This is his third book on the Materials Management module; his first two books in the Materials Management module are ‘Purchasing’ and ‘Inventory Management’. In this book, like in his earlier books, he explains every screen of SAP MM Invoice Verification. Both the SAP Menu and Customizing Implementation Guide are expanded and the chapter number where they are covered is indicated. This not only creates a direct link between the book and the SAP software, but also ensures that the book is comprehensive. The author has taken care to balance details with overviews that explain linkages between concepts. The book is organized in chapters that are important business activities. Each chapter covers business processes carried out in SAP by the user as well as its related configuration. This book can be used to learn SAP from scratch; it is a learning guide. It is, therefore, useful to persons who are training to be SAP Consultants. Having learnt SAP with the help of this book, the Consultant keeps returning to refer to it. In implementation of SAP, Consultants prepare User Manual. With the availability of this book, their task becomes simpler. In the User Manual, they need to cover only implementation specific points. The user refers to this book as a generic User Manual. As the user gains knowledge he also begins to understand the customizing settings for his implementation. This book can also be used by Business Process Owners and Senior Managers to get an overview of SAP and the important choices it offers.
SAP is a powerful software that meets the requirement of business all over the world. This well-organised book comprising 34 chapters is useful for both beginners and professionals. Being a learning guide and a user manual, the book will be immensely valuable for all those who are training to be SAP consultant. If you are a material/production manager, a QM professional or a business executive, you will find that the book brings a lot of convenience in your work and minimises inventory losses. A New Approach to SAP Implementation Structured dialog :The dialog between the consultant and the users should be based on the structure of this book. The consultant would demonstrate a business transaction, e.g. goods receipt, in its simplest form. He would then explain the data items on the screens, their meaning and significance. He would enquire whether the data item is relevant for the client company. The data items that are not relevant can be hidden in the implementation, and related configuration marked as not required. When the consultant would come to a section explaining IMG node, his questions to the user would be designed to collect the information required to configure that node. Prototyping :As the structured dialog continues, the consultant would go on doing the configuration. By the end of the dialog, the consultant would have built a company-specific prototype. Training and trials :The prototype would be a rough-cut implementation of SAP for the company. It would be used for training the users. After training, the users would try out the system. They would perform routine transactions several times using real-life data of their company. They would try different scenarios and record their observations. Refinement :After prototype trials, the consultant and the users would sit together to discuss what the users required to do, but could not do with the prototype. The consultant would use this input to refine the prototype and to build new functionality, if needed. Configuration manual :The documentation of SAP implementation includes a configuration manual. This configuration manual should be structured on the lines of this book as explained in Chapter 34. Such a configuration manual will be easy to understand as it groups logically related elements together. User manual :This book will serve as a generic user manual. Company-specific user manual can also be structured on the lines of this book including only company-specific guidelines for the users. Other SAP MM Book by the Author • SAP MM Purchasing: Technical Reference and Learning Guide
This book explains all the concepts underpinning SAP’s HR Time Management Module. It is a compre-hensive technical manual which explains every single node of the User Menu and the Configuration. The book first gives an overview of a concept explaining what it is, how it is used and how it relates to the other concepts. It then explains its properties, which are fields in a configuration node. This book is designed to be used both as a reference manual and a learning guide. As a learning guide, it offers four views, each for a different target audience. • It can be read from the Senior Management’s perspective to gain a broad understanding of the subject and what SAP can do for them. • Business Process Owners can achieve a higher level of under-standing by getting to know more of SAP concepts and how to perform different tasks in SAP. • Users can acquire a thorough understanding of different tasks and concepts underlying them. • Functional consultants and proficient users can read the book to gain a complete under-standing of the system. As a technical reference, the book can be used to locate the relevant material through the Table of Contents, Index, ‘SAP Menu’ and ‘SAP Customizing Implementation Guide (IMG)’. The last two follow the Table of Contents. If the reader is in SAP’s User Menu or Configuration, the chapter number for these nodes can be found in ‘SAP Menu’ and ‘IMG’. If a node is not covered in the book, the reason for not doing so is mentioned. The implementation of SAP HR Time Management and docu-mentation can also be guided by the structure of this book. A BETTER WORLD : There is a lot we can do to make our world a better world, just as we discover better ways to support our businesses. Read short articles inside on some of the ideas of World Integration and Improvement Initiative. World Government 691 World Language 693 Good Governance 699 City without Traffic Lights 705 SAP is a great software. One needs to fully understand its features in order to effectively exploit them for the benefit of customers. Mr. Agrawal’s books on SAP HR have a unique approach. A chapter usually focuses on a single business concept, and discusses the user interface as well as its associated configuration. This logical division makes it easier for readers to understand the functionality. Another important feature of these books is the level of detail. Each screen and each field in a screen is explained. Explanation includes meaning, use case and in some cases guidelines. Details are balanced by overviews explaining the concepts and their relationships. While explaining functionality, Mr. Agrawal has taken efforts to highlight what can be done and how it is to be done. This is particularly important for less experienced users and consultants. Indicating chapter numbers against each menu and configuration item is a very useful innovation, as it establishes direct link between the SAP system and the book. Another useful feature is that these books can be read not only by consultants, but also by users, business process owners and even by senior managers. The importance of each topic for each category of users is specified. Mr. Agrawal has taken considerable pain in writing these books, and I congratulate Mr. Agrawal on his achievement and thank him for his contribution to the SAP community. K.
