CustomizingLocate this document in the navigation structure


With Customizing settings enable you to adapt the non-company specific and industry-specific functions shipped to the specific business requirements of your enterprise.

Customizing supports you in the following situations:

  • Implementing the SAP System

  • Enhancing the SAP System

  • in release and system upgrades


Customizing controls the behavior of SAP applications. You only work with many SAP applications once you have made the necessary settings in Customizing, for example, setting the currencies and purchasing groups in Customizing that are used in your company.

To be able to transport the Customizing settings to other systems, for example, your test system, you need the transport system.


Customizing does not help you to modify the standard SAP functions.
