The journey started in November 2015, with release SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management 1511.

The 1st “feature pack” was released in 201602. as FPS01

Following the quarterly release strategy, soon the 2nd “feature pack” was released in 201605. – FPS02

While we expect the 3rd Feature Pack, some time soon, end of Aug ( in 201608) as FPS03, but it may/may not be released as Feature-pack, due to the soon expected next major release (read below)

    Hello Monika

     

    I was looking for the release dates of S4.

     

    Do you have any idea about which new itens will be part of FPS03?

     

    Thanks

      SAP is skipping FPS03, In Nov 2016 they will release 1511 SPS03. This will contain bug fixes but not sure  if it will include any new functionality.

      1610 scope is already part of the chart under section “C” .

      SAP has not declared the release date for S4 so we will need to keep guessing.

    Even though S/4HANA OP 1610 documentation is not yet released, there is a way to get to some information searching for SAP Notes in new Support Portal.

    For example:

    2355560 – SAP S/4 HANA, on premise 1610: Consumer Products: Restriction Note

    https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2355560/E

    confirms the following restrictions from 1511 continue in 1610

    Catch Weight Management (IS-CWM) is not realeased with SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1610

    Direct Store Delivery (LE-DSD) is not released with SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1610

    Enhancements for Food & Beverage in Logistics & Manufacturing (LOG_PP_CFB) are not released with SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1610

     

    S/4HANA 1511 to 1610 will be an upgrade as mentioned in 

    2337383 – S4TWL – Material Ledger Obligatory for Material Valuation (upgrade from S/4HANA 1511 to S/4HANA 1610)

    https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2337383/E

     

    Restrictions in Oil & Gas industry solution coming in 1610

    2319237 – S4TWL-Dynamic Scheduling functionality in TSW module is not available in SAP S/4HANA 1610

    https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2319237/E

     

    Finally 2 goods notes

    2236608 – Support Package levels of SAP S/4HANA ON-PREMISE installations/upgrades

     

    and direct link to SPS1 of 1610   2693 notes already and counting.

      Yes, I have been going thru SAP NOTES and some of the recent NOTEs do mention about 1610.. based on same I tried to update my document…

        Hi Monica, when in doubt I would suggest to write another blog when you have new things to tell!

        -> That gives better overview and more visibility of the new content!

        Also, you get a new commtens section.

         

        Of course, you can put links in your blogs to connect them to each other!

         

        best

        Joachim

          Thx Joachim Rese

           

          Yes 1610 deserves a NEW document..

           

          btw can you please also share, how (if) I can make the comments of existing document, move to next page, so as to make the TABLE in Document fully visible & thus increasing the readability of the document.

           

          Thanks & Best Regards

            Monica, lets check if the new SCN address this issue. I also think starting a new blog for 1610 would be the best  I have seen lots of great blogs but Somnath Manna’s comment gets top marks. BTW I did manage to meet him at TechEd Bangalore but we are yet do get a chance to discuss in detail.
