FPS2 Update

This is my SAP S/4HANA blog related to the status and outlook for Business Functions for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511  FPS2. Similar Blogs exist for:


Kind Regards,

Frank

Introduction

As a first step within the SAP S/4HANA, on-premise system conversion the customer will execute the Maintenance Planner. The Maintenance Planner checks the system with regards to business functions, industry solutions, and add-ons. If there is no valid path for the conversion (for example, the add-on is not released yet), the Maintenance Planner prevents the conversion.

  • For more details see Conversion Guide (SAP Help) or the related SCN Blog (The System Conversion to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 – Technical procedure and semantic adaption tasks SCN Link).
  • It is recommended to get familiar with the SAP S/4HANA system conversion basic information.
  • The following SCN Blog provides specific information about the role of Business Functions within SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 and is based on the basic understanding of the system conversion process.

Business Functions

A business function is a building block of a business function set. From a business perspective, it represents a self-contained function that you can switch on. From a technical point of view, it is a set of switches that assign repository objects to the business function. Business functions are switched on at a system level. For more details regarding Business Functions see SAP Help: Link

Business Functions Sets

The business functions are grouped in business function sets in your ABAP-based ECC system. There are two types of business functions sets:

  • For most Industry Business Solutions, there is one business function set for each industry. You use this to change your clients of an ECC system over to the applications and solutions tailored for an industry. This business function set covers all industry business functions that can be used for an industry solution to be used exclusively on one system/one instance.
  • In addition to the industry-specific business function sets, there is a general business function set. This contains the Enterprise business functions and the Enterprise Extensions. These contain functions for the standard applications of Accounting, Logistics, Human Capital Management, and some additional industry-specific applications.

A business function set is activated when you have activated at least one of the related business functions. We therefore recommend that you activate the business function set when you start configuring your system, since the required industry-specific view of your Implementation Guide is only created once you have activated the related business function.For more details regarding SAP ERP Business Functions and Industry Business Solutions see SAP Help:Link

Business Functions Status in SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511

Business Functions can have the following status:

  • Always on,
  • Customer switchable,
  • Always off.


During the system conversion to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 the following figure gives an overview about the handling of different status of Business Functions.

If a business function was switched “ON” in the Business Suite start release system, but defined as “always_off” in the SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition target release, then a system conversion is not possible with this release (for Business Functions where the status cannot be reverted on start release). See aswell SAP Note 2240359 – SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 Feature Pack Stack 1 (FPS1): Always-Off Business Functions

Note 1:
In this constellation it is not possible to convert this system and start a conversion program with the target of productive use. If the intention is a proof of concept to experience SAP S/4HANA it is possible to convert the system by applying a workaround in a non-productive testing environment.

ALWAYS ON in SAP S/4HANA

If a business function was switched “OFF” in the start release system, but defined as “always_on” in the target release, then the business function will be activated during the conversion.

Business Functions on the SAP S/4HANA roadmap

The following List contain Business Functions which are related to industries or functionslities which are on the roadmap for SAP S/4HANA. For example the Business Functions related to an industry which are not yet available for SAP S/4HANA (for example industry retail) are consequently still in status ALWAYS_OFF (for example Business Function EA-RET).

    Thanks.

    Is there a way to work with spoilers in your scn blog? It is very, very long.

    The second description in the “similar blogs” section is identical to the first description.

    Please also add an explanation for the special business functions here, like in the FPS01 blog, so the other customers won’t wonder:

    • LOG_SD_ANALYTICS_01_ALWAYS_OFF
    • LOG_SD_EACOMPLAINTS_ALWAYS_OFF

    Maybe it is also possible to highlight the delta (business functions) between the last FPS and this?

    Regards

    Daniel

      Hello,

      thanks for the input – I´ve updated the two lists with these information. In Bold and a brownisch color the Business Functions which have been addeded copmpared to the FPS1 Lists. Background: Upports of EHP8 functionality into SAP S/4HANA. For example commodity management functionality which is on the roadmap of SAP S/4HANA (and then accordingly in FPS2 then a new ALWAYS_OFF business function).  

      I´ve added a section about the business functions which are no longer in status ALWAYS_OFF and no longer blocking the system conversion (compared to FPS1). These entries are removed from the ALWAYS_OFF FPS2 List.

      Kind Regards,

      Frank

    Hello,

    just wanted to point your attention to the statement regarding FPS02 in the SAp S/4HANA Release information note:

    http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2189824

    • Please note that the conversion to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 Feature Package Stack 02 is only possible with the conversion export delivered with Support Release 1 (SR1). The availability of SR1 is planned for 07/2016 (non-binding information). Until then, you can convert to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 Feature Package Stack 02 in two steps: 1) Conversion to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 Feature Package Stack 01 (using the SR0 conversion export), 2) Update from Feature Package Stack 01 to Feature package Stack 02 via Support Package Manager (transaction SPAM) or Software Update Manager (SUM).

    That means that customers having issues with business functions listed under “Note 2” in my blog above can convert with Support Release 1 (SR1) to SAP S/4HANA, then these Business Functions will not block the conversion any longer.


    Kind Reagrds,

    Frank

      Hello Frank,

      Is that means if the system have function listed under “Note 2”, the conversion path will be :

      ERP6.0 –> S/4HANA 1511 SR1 –> S/4HANA FPS02 ?

      Thanks and Best Regards

        Hello Tarmizee,

        with installing S4 SR1 you are coding-wise on FPS2. The Support Release Approach is a Full-Load approach to go directly on FPS2. Without SR1 available you have to install SR0 (Aswell a full load) which is coding-wise FPS1. Then you have to install FPS2 on top (then in a delta approach).

        To make it short – with SR1 you are codingf-iwse then on FPS2.

        Kind Regards,

        Frank

          Hello Frank,

          Apologize, I got confused with your answer. I can’t relate the answer to conversion step. Or what you meant is, as long as the conversion is from ERP6.0 –> S/4HANA 1511 SR1, it’s already FPS2 ?

          Thanks and Best Regards

            Hello Tarmizee,

            yes – a system conversion from ERP6.0 based on SAP S/4HANA 1511 SR1 will bring you coding-wise on SAp S/4HANA 1511 FPS2.

            Kind Regards,

            Frank

            No.

            Think of the SR’s as directly-to-target conversion packages. S4/HANA 1511 SR0 ships S4/HANA 1511 FPS01 (skipping FPS00), and S4/HANA 1511 SR1 ships S4/HANA 1511 FPS02 (skipping FPS00 and FPS01).

            If you have a function enabled which is listed here as no longer blocks conversion (“Note 2”), you can convert your ERP6 to SR1 in one step, resulting in S4/HANA 1511 FPS02. But you cannot convert to SR0 and then upgrade to FPS2, as it is not supported for conversion to SR0.

    Hi Frank,

    Thanks for taking out time and writing a blog on this topic.

    We are currently running on Business Suite on HANA with sFin 1.0 and We plan to migrate to S/4 HANA 1511 FPS002.

    As part of Pre-Checks, We referred to the Note “2240359 – SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511:Always-Off Business Functions” and found that one of the Business Functions “MDG_CUST_ERPCLIENT_1” which is expected to be switched off on the start release system is actually turned on in our system.

    We are not using MDG and we donot have MDG System.

    Please let me know if we can switch this Business Function OFF or Do we have any work around to be able to proceed further.

    Thanks!

      Hello Amit,

      with SAP S/4HANA 1511 FPS2 the Business Function MDG_CUST_ERPCLIENT_1 is defined as ALWAYS_OFF. That means that customers haveing this Business Function “active” in their productive Business Suite System cannot convert to SAP S/4HANA 1511 FPS2.

      I did a bit of a research – it is planned that this BF will be no longer block the conversion. Accordingly I added this Business Function to the list of “Business Functions on the Roadmap”.

      Fo a non productive environment it is possible to provide a workaround (not possible for a productive environment) so that the conversion procedure can be continued even with this Business Function active. For applying this workaround (like said only possible in a non-productive environment) you can create a ticket on component BC-UPG-LP

      Kind Regards,

      Frank

    Dear Frank ,

    Greetings!!!

    Can you please through more light on the work around part , ours is a non productive environment , and Business functions are stopping us on the upgrade.

    Can you please help us on the same? How to get the work around solution u are talking about in Note 1 .

    Best Regards,

      Hello Kinjal,

      let me state first something about the upcoming S/4 1610 Release. With 1610 Release more scope is planned to be supported (for example industries like Retail, Oil). Related Business Functions to this then enhanced scope will no longer block the conversion. As 1610 is still “planned” I can not state yet what are the Business Functions which will no longer block the conversion, but you should have a look in this S4 SCN Blog once 160 release is released.

      This said first let´s comne to your question. If you are in a situation where a Business function is “active” on start release, but declared as ALWAYS_OFF on S4 target release it´s not possibl yto convert to S4 (for example Retail, Oil is not enabled with S4 1511 – therefore it does not make sense to convert a Retail system to S4 1511 – the business function approach is the vehicle to stop those not conversions for 1511).

      Like stated we are offering for a non-productive environment a workaround. The workaround, which you can request based on a ticket raised on component BC-UPG-LP,

      does manipulate some data so that the conversion tooling is “ignoring” the blocking constellation. That only make sense within a non-productive environment and only if the focus is mainly to get familiar with the conversion technology. The workaround does not provide the underlying functionality. Let´s take the example of a Retail customer. The workaround enable a system to continue with the conversion, but would not enbale the Retail functionality with 1511. Accordingly it need to be considered what should be achieved with the workaround. If you just want to see have the conversion procedure works it´s possibly OK doing it. You will not be able to test Retail functionality with S4 1511 as target.

      Hope that´s answers your question.

      Kind Regards,

      Frank
