  • This course is a training of the functionality and techniques of the defense solution. It will not provide customer specific implementation know how. It will show some best practice approaches of EA-DFPS within the used examples, while stressing the innovations in S/4HANA D&S solution in Defense Logistics. The training DFPS66 Organizational Workshop is highly recommended to understand the content of this workshop. This course is built on SAP S/4HANA basis, while using DFPS (industry solution Defense) in Compatibility Scope for the Maintenance content and D&S native SAP S/4HANA solution for the logistics units. The DFPS specific knowledge acquired is also relevant and compatible with ECC 6.0 EHP 5-8 platforms with active Defense Solution. In case of a customer specific training for a customer who is not interested in D&S innovations, the modified units are available in their ECC version as appendices. The training content is subject of changes because the development is an ongoing process. In some parts of the training also customizing topics will be discussed. Be aware that the course materials are delivered in English only.
