Focused Build Project UI
Focused Build as an Add-On
SAP has deployed Focused Build as an add-on to Solution Manager. Expanding to the Solution Readiness Dashboard, part of Focused Build, gives Project Manager’s or the PMO centralized insight to project status. Project status can be set manually by the PM/PMO in the Project Management module of Solution Manager. Users can also look forward to accessing the array of applications within the dashboard.
For those of you in the PM role, having an accessible one-stop look into project progress and metrics can be challenging. Considering the area of Monitoring, our CoreALM team stresses the importance of utilizing these insights. It prevents downtime and truly reshapes a team from operating reactively into a team that can achieve progress by operating proactively. These notions should be made conscious even before considering the tools available to execute, because organizing foundationally sets the most optimistic stage for successful project deliveries.
Above is the standard Solution Readiness Dashboard view, equipped with Fiori Applications that can drill-down into project status specific. This screenshot gives only a fraction of credibility that this project status feature brings to unify your project success with the ALM tools in SAP Solution Manager.
As of the end of February 2019, SAP has recently released Focused Build SP03 as the newest installment of the delivery platform. SAP has expanded the layout for the Requirements table, adding the Category, Classification, and Owner columns to the design.
