Business Roles

In former lesson you learned how a possible product development process could look like. Now you learn which users and roles are necessary to cover all steps of a product development process.

Watch the following video to get an impression of the affected users, their business roles and their tasks.

Process Flow: Standard Material

A possible product development scenario could take place for a standard material or a configurable material.

For a standard material you have to define a standard classification, a standard material BOM and a standard routing.

Now watch the following video, which shows a possible product development scenario for a standard material and the involved business roles.

Process Flow: Configurable Material

Working with a configurable material, the situation is different in comparison to a standard material.

Two possible scenarios exist:

  • A configurable material, a material BOM and a routing exist and you do the configuration
  • You are in an early product development stage without having master data and you do the configuration

Let's have a look at a possible product development process for the second scenario, which names the involved business roles, and their tasks for developing a configurable material.
