Testing SAP R/3

A Manager's Step-by-Step Guide

With companies pouring millions of dollars into SAP R/3 implementation, the question remains whether proper documentation, standards, strategy, and approach are all in place in order to successfully test the components of their SAP system. Designed for SAP managers, consultants, testers, and team leads, Testing SAP R/3 equips companies and SAP professionals to protect their multimillion dollar investment and build their system the right way and with quality.

Written by renowned SAP practitioners, this book reviews testing standards and techniques supported by the Software Engineering Institute, IEEE, and Unifying Modeling Language (UML) that have dominated the landscape for producing software-based applications, providing readers with information for conducting a major SAP testing cycle for either an SAP upgrade or initial SAP installation.

With the advent of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, companies more than ever have the burden of demonstrating that their enterprise resource planning (ERP), financial, inventory, and supply chain systems are properly working. Providing much-needed industry guidance, this thought-provoking guide enables public companies to prove their SAP applications are running correctly and delivers powerful, straightforward, proven testing techniques and approaches for:

  • Building a system with quality as opposed to merely testing for quality
  • Adhering to testing practices from SAP's ASAP Roadmap Methodology, IBM's Ascendant Methodology, IEEE standards, and the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) from the Software Engineering Institute (SEI)
  • Construction of a requirements traceability matrix (RTM) to verify all in-scope requirements
  • Diagramming processes and requirements with Unifying Modeling Language (UML) notation
  • Documentation and adherence to test plans and test strategies that are subjected to version control
  • Inclusion and enforcement of quality assurance standards

A must-read for project managers, test managers, and configuration leads who want to establish a testing framework from the ground up based on industry-established principles, Testing SAP R/3 contains contributions from industry leaders in the fields of SAP testing, test tool automation, and templates to help project managers and test managers establish immediate testing best practices. Its step-by-step discussion covers all aspects of SAP testing from preparation to resolution of defects in order to achieve an efficiently managed SAP system.
