You can save information about a project per phase or project activity, e.g. status, deadlines or team members. Reports are based on this information. The more detailed information you have recorded, the more reporting options you have. You can analyze either one project or several projects at the same time, depending on the selected project type.
The following analysis functions are available:
Analysis of administration information, classified in general status analysis, and worklists which can be assigned to one or more project team members. In worklist analyses you can analyze specified data, such as the status or the planned end date.
Analysis of the assignments in the
This can be assigned business functions or documentation (general or project documentation, or business test requirements) and transactions which were already delivered, or have been added during the project.
The analysis is analogous to the Business Blueprint phase. You can also analyze the assignments of configuration objects (e.g. BC Sets, CATTs, IMG activities), business functions, test cases, and problem messages. You can also make cross-system Project IMG analyses, locally in the managed systems.
Analysis of test plans (individually or collectively) or business test requirements (if you use the SAP Quality Center by HP or IBM Rational Quality Manager); inconsistent test plans whose structure has changed since their creation
Analysis of the logical components used in a project
Analyses of the selected transactions, TBOMs and test cases
● Change recording:
Analyses of the change history of tabs and documents
● Learning Map:
Analyze the feedback which users have given to a learning map (computer-supported self-learning course)
Analysis of the Roadmaps assigned to a project
The analysis and analysis results display options are very flexible. You can use selection criteria to restrict the scope of the analysis, and specify how the results of the analysis are to be presented. You can create standard analyses and save them as selection variants, for the program types in the Business Blueprint, and Configuration phases.
You can perform the following analyses, depending on the selection criteria:
● Project information:
status information and documentation type analyses
● Progress monitoring:
for example by combining various status information (for example, project team members and a particular status) or by aggregating the project information
● General analyses:
for example daily analyses
You can restrict the analyses to one or more projects (depending on the project type).
You can call the displayed elements of the project structure or IMG activities directly from the output.
The output displays all information or contents, not only the project structure elements which satisfy the selection criteria, for completeness. So if you analyze the project team member Meier, you are also shown project team member Schulze, if he is also assigned to the element. If you do not specify selection criteria, all data in this project is analyzed.
You can go to the analysis in two ways:
● For all project and phases: You call up the reports in the Analyses view of the Implementation/Upgrade work center.
● phase-specific: You can perform phase-specific analyses for a selected project in the Business Blueprint and the configuration. Choose Environment → Project Analyses and a program type.
