How is the solution documentation created?
If the implementation projects are used correctly, sufficient solution documentation is automatically generated in the operation and optimization phase. If documentation is not started until the operational phase, the core business processes of the corresponding company must be documented in SAP Solution Manager. This requires only part of the information needed for a complete implementation project.
During the entire life cycle of SAP Solution Manager, the solution documentation can be continuously enriched:
- Create global business templates and specifications
- Create or adapt the business process structure on site during the regional implementation project
- Enhancement of business process documentation during solution configuration with customized code documentation, configuration information, test cases, etc.
- The business process documentation can be re-documented or adapted during operation
- Verification of the business documentation before upgrades are carried out

The business documentation is maintained by solution architects. The data is displayed and maintained under Solution Documentation Assistant.
