Invitation to the XStep Café


Dear manufacturing community,

To spread the know how about PI Sheets and XSteps I would like to establish a regular and informal web meeting to discuss topics around ERP-based manufacturing using PI sheets (PP-PI) or the newly introduced electronic work instructions for PP. Both objects can be defined by XSteps (introduced in R/3 Enterprise Ext.2.0). Therefore (and to emphasize the informal character) I will call the virtual meeting ‘XSteps Café‘.

There will be no specific agenda but any suggestions are welcome. In the meeting room I (or any other participant) can share documents actual live systems or presentations. The sessions can also be recorded for future reference (if there are no objections).


  • Exchange of experience
  • Discussion on common problems
  • Share of tipps and tricks


  • Consulting on specific customer issues
  • Training replacement
  • OSS replacement

Required knowledge (minimum on the SAP training level):

  • PP/PP-PI
  • PP-PI process management / XSteps

Interested persons that don’t meet these requirements may join but don’t expect training!


If you are interested, please send me a mail with the following information:

  • Name
  • Company, industry
  • Area of responsibility
  • Level of PP/PP-PI experience
  • Email address
  • Country & Time zone
  • Headset available?

I am planning the first ‘opening’ on 15th May 3pm-4pm CET (German time). The login link will be sent out at a later time to all confirmed participants.

You may forward this mail to any other recipient who meets the requirements.

Hope to see you soon for a coffee 😉
