    Solution Starter: Project Server 2003 to ERP Connector

    The download includes source code and components for the Project Server to ERP Connector Solution Starter. The ERP Connector includes three independent modules for integrating Microsoft® Office Project Server 2003 with enterprise resource planning applications such as the SAP® solutions mySAP™ ERP Human Capital Management and mySAP ERP Financials for human resources and project cost accounting.

        The download includes the components, Microsoft ASP.NET administration page, source code, and documentation that shows how to install and configure the ERP Connector components. One ERP Connector component synchronizes resource and organization data in Project Server 2003 with data from mySAP ERP Human Capital Management. Another component creates projects in Project Server from internal order and task accounting data exported by the mySAP ERP Financials CO and PS subsystems. The ERP Connector component that integrates work breakdown structure (WBS) data enables Project Server to export approved timesheet data (work actuals) to the mySAP ERP Financials PS subsystem for cost accounting.

        You can install and configure the Human Resources (HR), Finance Projects, and Finance WBS modules of the ERP Connector independently. In most cases, you can use the HR module directly from the download.

        Important In most cases, your finance business specialist should review the Finance Projects module (integration with mySAP ERP Financials CO and PS subsystems). Because of specific accounting processes and data requirements in each organization, in virtually all cases you will need to modify the components that import work actuals from Project Server into the subsystems of mySAP ERP Financials for export and import of data.

        All of the ERP Connector components are implemented with Project Data Service (PDS) extensions and include the Microsoft Visual C#® source code. Four of the PDS extensions are specific to the ERP Connector. You can use or modify one PDS extension, the EnterpriseCustomFieldValueUpdate method, for other applications. The download also includes test files and the necessary SAP ABAP™ language source code and instructions for implementing components on the mySAP ERP Financials subsystems for export and import of data.
