Some Project issues

In Shell Project point of view,

*how many process chains u have* -  1800 + chains

and how many loads per day  -  3 schedule per day ( G1, G2, G3 ),  G1 is
for Europe Region ( starts at 6:15 am IST ), G2 is for Asia region  ( Starts
at 7:30 pm IST), G3 is for US region ( starts at 12:30 pm IST ).

*modules of projects* -

FSS  ( Financial Services )
PGS ( Procurment of Good and Supply),
GAME ( Global Asset  Management system )
StBC ( Sell to Business Customers ),
StRC ( Sell to Retail Customers )
HM ( Hydro Corbon Managment ),
LSC ( Lubricants supply chain management )

*data source whic u have used -*

2LIS_BAITEM -  Sales Item
2LIS_BAIHDR  -  Sales header
2LIS_12VCITEM  -  Delivery Item
2LIS_VDHRD  -  Delivery Header
2LIS_VCItem -  Billing item
These are some of SAP standdard Data sources, serach in google with  "SAP
standdard Data sources", u can find many more.
*title of project   -*  Shell BAM ( GSAP )
*Object of project*  -

*Shell* is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies, operating
in over 145 countries and employing more than 119, 000 people best known to
the public for service station and for exploring and producing oil and gas
on land and at sea. GSAP will replace Shell’s fragmented Enterprise Resource
Planning systems with a harmonized global platform, critical to the delivery
of OP-One benefits. Shell aims to reduce the number of Enterprise Resource
Planning systems in oil products from 123 to less than 10.
*flow of project*   - Not clear with the question, U just can't explain the
flow of the projects but can explain flow of a particular Report.
like from which source system data is coming to BW, where u are storing it
in BW etc,

Eg : R/3 system --> 2LIS_BAITEM -->PSA-->ABAP Routine ( Update rules )

  1. Hi all,

    The issue management plan describes the project’s process for managing project issues. Issues are generated by things like unmediated disputes, unaddressed concerns, and unresolved decision-making. Issues arise in all Project Phases and may have tremendous negative impacts on the project if not addressed properly. Thanks a lot!
