This post describes standards for building process chains in SAP BW at any generic development project.
Process Chain Names & Attributes Standards:
Process chain technical names should begin with Z or as per your client naming conventions.
Descriptions for meta chains (parent process chains that execute sub-chains) should include “Meta” or “Parent.”
- Never leave a process chain under the default, “Not Assigned,” Display Grouping. Use the Display Components toolbar button ( ) to assign new process chains to the appropriate display grouping.
- Refer your client’s SAP BW Naming Convention document for Display Grouping technical names
- If you have a large application composed of multiple logical subsystems, you may create multiple display groupings for your application. Doing so can help you organize your process chains by subsystem. Just make sure the name and description conform to the client standards.
- To ensure that you do not leave process chains abandoned under the “Not Assigned” display grouping, consider getting into the habit of assigning the display grouping immediately after you create the Start process for new process chains.
