Migrate/Upload “Equipment BOM” in Rise with SAP


Hi Guys,

I am working as a SAP S/4HANA Plant Maintenance Consultant. In this blog, we will see about the data migration of Equipment BOM in SAP S/4HANA system.

First let’s have a short introduction and overview of the functionality of the S/4HANA migration cockpit.

The SAP S/4HANA migration cockpit is a tool designed for customers who have just SAP S/4HANA and want to transfer the business data from SAP to non-SAP Systems. It is part of Both SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud and can be launched using the “Migrate Your Data “app in the Fiori launchpad. With migration cockpit you can migrate your master data and transactional data to SAP S/4HANA.

In this blog, let’s discuss about data migration for Uploading Equipment BOM which identifies all the replacement spare parts for an equipment, so that maintenance engineers can quickly identify the right part required.

Select migration object: In this Step you must select which object you want to migrate in your project.

Populate and Upload Tables: The XML template files must be downloaded and filled. After that, it must be uploaded in the “Migrate your data” app.

Prepare: After uploading the file, the system will validate the table structure to ensure that the data is filled according to the template which was generated by the system.

Mapping Tasks: This Step  requires a manual confirmation between the data inserted into the files and the data configured in the S/4HANA system

Simulate: This is the final Step  before uploading the XML file data into S/4HANA tables the system will validate the information is correct and check if any error occurs.
