Services: Before

Even before your project starts, there are critical topics to be addressed. SophisTex can support you with gauging the scope, setting the success criteria, identifying risks and setting milestones for optimal allocation of resources and successful project kick-off.

Best Practices


SophisTex Best Practices are documents based on several years of project experience and lessons-learned from global projects across all industries.

Even though SAP standard software is extremely powerful, your business needs result in enhancements exceeding customizing. Whether you want to enhance an existing SAP standard functionality during implementation, after implementation or by building your own custom SAP solution, our Best Practices help you to leverage the optimized existing processes and drastically increase quality.

Our Best Practices are grouped into several topics such as Technical ABAP Implementation, SAP PLM 7 Architecture and The Organization of Internal Development Processes.

The Best Practices documents complement our offered pre-, during and post-project services. They help educate your technical staff whether it consists of internal or external team members.

Additionally, SophisTex offers workshops and trainings based on our Best Practice topics.

effort estimation



We evaluate and review your SAP PLM concepts prior to implementation, assess the technical architecture of additional developments and check your system landscape in terms of needed services, EhP versions and hardware requirements for your use-case scenario.

Evaluating concepts and asking the right questions about the planned technical architecture for implementation helps you to proactively minimize potential risks with regards to time, budget and quality.
