Goals of the Package Concept

When SAP created the package architecture in R/3 Enterprise, its goals were:

For R/3 Enterprise in particular, the application of the package concept is designed to ensure that the R/3 Enterprise Core and Extensions are developed separately, so that customers can install and maintain them separately. Thus the package concept can be used to structure and encapsulate the software, both inside the R/3 Enterprise Core and between the different Extensions.
