SAP Best Practice Solution Processes in SAP Signavio Process Navigator

SAP Signavio Process Navigator

SAP Signavio Process Navigator is the library of SAP's predefined business process content for different solutions. SAP Process Navigator is the successor of SAP Best Practices Explorer.

A solution scenario includes the documentation of each solution process in addition to resources (known as "accelerators") that are designed to help with implementing the business process content of the solution.

A solution process describes the process steps involved with completing an activity from start to finish in the relevant system. For example, the solution process Time Recording (1Q4) guides you through the process of an employee recording actual working time against accounting objects in the relevant application. The terms, solution process and business process are synonymous.

A solution process is visually displayed in the solution process flow diagram, and the steps to complete the process in an actual SAP S/4HANA Cloud system are documented in the test script, located in the accelerators section. Many solution processes have task tutorials, which are simulations that guide a user through the steps of the test script in a virtual SAP S/4HANA Cloud environment. These same tutorials can be found in a live SAP S/4HANA Cloud system as part of the embedded support. If a task tutorial is available, an additional tab will display in the accelerators section titled, End-User Information.

An additional test script with (SAP Cloud ALM) in parentheses is for the implementation team to use when creating manual test cases in SAP Cloud ALM for the final user acceptance testing after each solution process has been configured in the customer's SAP S/4HANA Cloud system landscapes. If a solution process requires a predefined integration or other prerequisite tasks to function correctly, set-up instructions are also provided in the accelerators section.
