[ Deductions Management Application
 The timely delivery of results from several SAP and non SAP
Applications needed to be orchestrated
 Information was processed by multiple systems (BASIS, AS/Core
Vitria) on its way to the SAP BW and R/3 Systems
 The normal 24 hour fulfillment cycle ran 24x7 with a preference for
off hours and weekend deliveries. Adding on the Sales Centers
daily close and it could be 72 hours before delivery and invoicing
information passed through multiple legacy systems to show up in
the financial system.
 Some customers were immediate payment others net 30
 Invoices could be scanned on site or mailed but the images
needed to be indexed and available to the Deductions
Management Clerk
 SAP Deductions Management remained in only two of the A/R
centers past the original enterprise wide deployment date until issues
were addressed

 The goal was to address all of the issues that kept the company from
deploying the SAP supported accounts receivable process to all
processing centers. Success was the deployment of the solution to
all shared services centers.
 A Six Sigma DMAIC Project was initiated with a goal of “Information
on Glass” i.e. getting all of the Deductions Management Clerk‟s
information to the screen.
 Solution Manager v3.2 was valuable but other tools and custom
development were used
 Multiple dashboards were created to consolidate data from solution
manager and third party applications.
 Lesson Learned:
BPM Added Value and Promoted Success
Cost and Effort to Implement was High!!!

[ Using Solution Manager BPM – Lessons Learned
 Component Monitoring generates event notifications. Incident
management process begins before the first user calls
 Regular reporting of Solution Manager information to the functional
user is only important
 When the information is changing often
 When the information is relevant and not accessible through the
Application‟s Analytics
 When a longer running problem exists waiting for resolution e.g. dialogue
response time issues
 Dashboards are a good solution for consistently reporting information
to a wider audience. Report Card of Key Business Indicators
 Business users prefer their application‟s built in analytics over
solution manager - Leverage what is already available
 Solution Manager is first and foremost a tool for IT and not for endusers
