Function documentationBusiness Blueprint Locate this document in the navigation structure


This function documents the business processes in your company that you want to implement in the system. In a Business Blueprint for Projects, you create a project structure in which relevant business scenarios, business processes and process steps are organized in a hierarchical structure. You can also create project documentation and assign it to individual scenarios, processes or process steps. You then assign transactions to each process step, to specify how your business processes should run in your SAP systems.

The Business Blueprint is a detailed description of your business processes and system requirements. You can print it out.


You can continue to use the project documentation and the project structure that you create during the Business Blueprint, in the configuration and test organization phases.

  • When you configure your business processes, the system displays the Business Blueprint project structure. You can use the Business Blueprint project structure as a point of reference during configuration.

  • You can also display and edit the project documentation from the Business Blueprint phase, during configuration.

  • You base all test plans that you create during test organization, on the Business Blueprint project structure. The transactions that you assign to process steps in the Business Blueprint are put in test plans during test plan generation, and run as function tests to test the transactions.


You have created a project in the Project Administration (see Project Administration).
