Data transmission to a tool agreed on with the customer such as IMDS or SAP PSN for its use, as described in Section 5.6 . 5.8 Configuration Settings In the following section, we present some settings that are important in require- ments and target management. 5.8.1 SAP Product Lifecycle Costing You can find the settings for SAP PLC in the Administration area of the UI. Figure 5.28 shows an overview of all settings. The Administration view includes not only configuration settings but also master data, which you can import from SAP ERP, as follows: Master data from logistics This includes material master data, customer and vendor master data, and plants. Master data from financial accounting This includes accounting, cost accounting, profit centers, cost centers, and service types. Price information This is stored on the basis of the logistics logs, so it defines which price is assigned to a material master or to which cost element of a service type. © 2019 by Rheinwerk Publishing Inc., Boston (MA)

241 5.8 Configuration Settings Costing sheets To use SAP PLC for costing and analysis, you need costing sheets, which are explained in Section 5.5.1 , and cost component splits, as described in Section 5.5.4 . These are based on the cost types and groups that you also define. Figure 5.28 SAP PLC Administration View You can find the actual settings for configuration under Global Settings . Here you can set available languages, currencies, and quantity units. The setting of Global Default Values (for all users) as well as the default values under User-Specific Settings (for the current user) are defined by default values in the sense of an automatic pre- allocation of field contents. In addition to the described setting options, SAP PLC offers numerous possibilities for enhancements: Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) in the backend system allow access to SAP PLC functions, enable control of SAP PLC from a third application, and enable SAP PLC information to be read. The SAP HANA data model can be extended by customer-driven views to obtain better access to the data in SAP HANA databases. Personal Copy for Lakshmi Narayan BK, [email protected]

5 Requirements Management 242 SAP PLC allows you to define and display customer-defined fields . In addition, the content of these fields can be calculated using customer-defined formulas. The frontend can also be expanded with its own add-in components. The authorization system in SAP PLC is based on a set of authorizations and roles, which bundle these authorizations after suspected use cases. Both roles and authori- zations can be assigned to individual users to entitle them to activities. Following are examples of roles: Calculation_Version_Viewer can display a cost estimate. Contributor can create and update cost estimates.
