SAP Business ByDesign – Project Management
Project Management offers an end-to-end integration with other business areas, such as financials for cost and revenue management, customer relationship management (CRM) for project invoicing, and supplier relationship management (SRM) for project procurement. The integration of Project Management with other business areas gives you increased control and transparency in your projects.
When you set a project status to started or released, integration with other areas is enabled. When a project status is on hold, stopped, or closed, the system automatically disables the integration with other business areas. This ensures that invoices, for example, are not accidentally posted to incorrect projects. The integration between Project Management and other business areas ensures that you are better equipped to make key decisions on your projects and to present crucial data to senior management.

In the Projects view of the Project Management work center, you can create and maintain projects, and get an overview of the time and expenses recorded to your projects. In the Projects sub-view you can find general information about your projects, such as their current status, the person responsible, and risk. You can refine this information in the worklist using the entries in the Show field, for example, to show all of the active projects to which you have access. From this sub-view you can directly access the Maintain Project editor, which enables you to create new projects and edit existing ones using the following tab pages within the project editor: Project Plan, Team and Staffing, Products and Purchasing, Sales Tracking, and Project Overview. The Sales Tracking tab page is visible only for billable projects.
