Here's a beautiful overview about what the SAP PS Module does and what it's comprised of:

SAP PS Module Overview from SAP SCN Wiki

Also, here is an overview of the new Add-On SAP Commercial Project Management, which is also very relevant for SAP PS consultants

SAP CA-CPD / CPM / Commercial Project Management from SAP Developer Workbench Blog

Hope that helps!

Best regards, Been

hi all

If you are like me, you want to get an idea about ERP and your company has not implemented it yet.
Just go to www.openbravo.com; they have a live demo; it works as a web client, and if you have a savvy IT staff you can manage to install at no charge.

That is it. U are right.

We had many problems during the implementation. But now everything is running well. It is necessary that all the persons of the organization understand the importance of the usage of an integrated system like SAP/R3 and which are the benefits.

Thanks you Alexander, hope this time I’ll see u for real.

Marcio, I suppose it is rather strange to ask for a product like SAP PS; from a guy who has never touched an ERP software. My point is; what I understood from a separate thread in this forum; and a lot of materiel in the web; the process of cost control and financial control are two separates process although basically they used the same data (input) the first one is done by planners cost engineers; estimators etc and the second one is the work of accountants.

The magic behind a good ERP software like SAP well implemented in a company; is to unify all the process used in a given business. ( yes it sounds like a marketing sentence;)

So I hope I am not wrong or over optimistic.

Hi,

I work in Petrobras (www.petrobras.com) and we use all SAP modules integrated.

Specific in the project i am working (oil platform construction), contractors (we have 5) are using Primavera 5.0, P3 and MS Project to plann and control their contracts.

I have an overall schedulle on PS module where i give actuals after analyze informations that I receive from contractors.

I am also Primavera user since 2002 and think that PS is more difficult. Too much details.

Regards.

ya mimoune, [],
you should be satisfied with the following link:

otherwise, just ask for "sap demo" in google, you will find plenty of websites pertaining to the subject

Thanks marcio

But i was expecting some personal experience about the software, as specially in the case of SAP, if your company has not implemented it, you have no way to see it in action.
