SAP Status Profile – A scenario from Heavy Industries

Scenario : ABC Company manufactures Power Transformers that can be used in Nuclear Power Plants. When a Customer orders the same, a number of validations needs to be performed before the order can be finally delivered. You have been given the task of creating the different SAP User Statuses. Here are the different statuses.

  • Initial
  • Initial Site Inspection Complete
  • Concrete Base Prepared
  • Pillars Erected
  • Structural Integrity Verified
  • Power Cables Verified
  • Final Inspection done.
  • Approved
  • Rejected

Configure the status profile at the sales document header level and assign it to a custom sales document type and ensure the following.

  1. The status can ONLY go from “Initial” to ” Initial Site Inspection Complete”
  2. From “Initial Site Inspection Complete” the status can go up to “Pillars Erected” or “Concrete Base prepared” but cannot go back to “Initial”
  3. From “Concrete Base Prepared”, the status can go to the status can go up to “Structural Integrity Verified” but cannot go below “Initial Site Inspection Complete”
  4. From “Pillars Erected” the status can go up to “Final Inspection done” , but cannot go below “Initial Site Inspection Complete”
  5. From “Structural Integrity Verified” the status can go up to “Final Inspection done”, but cannot go below “Initial Site Inspection Complete”
  6. From “Power Cables Verified”, the status can go up to “Final Inspection done” , but cannot go below itself
  7. From “Final Inspection done” , the status can go up to “Rejected”, but cannot go below ” Initial site inspection complete”
  8. From Approve
  9. Only if the status is “Approved”, then the sales document can be delivered and billed.
  10. If the status is either rejected or in any other status other than “Approved”, the sales document cannot be delivered or billed.
