Guidelines for an SCM 4.0 to 5.0 upgrade

I am upgrading SCM 4.0 to SCM 5.0. Can you tell me the guidelines for making a technical and functional assessment for the upgrade? How do I find the areas in which I can face problems while upgrading?

The challenges that one faces in upgrades can vary from client to client depending on the functionality being used and the extent of customised programs being used.

An upgrade is inevitable given the licensing and the limited support that SAP will provide for older versions....

The SCM 5.0 version functionally will be able to cover every functionality that was available in SCM 4.0. If you want to use the additional functionality that is available in SCM 5.0 and scope some work based on that you can take a look at the release notes that is available on help.sap.com in the SCM 5.0 area.

The technical assessment will be available in the "system requirements" that can be located in the service marketplace.

The upgrade master guide will have the technical as well as some of the typical functional steps to be carried out during the upgrade. In addition please check notes OSS "832393 - Release Restrictions for SCM 5.0", "853797 - Actions to perform in DP after you upgrade to SCM 5.0" and "865334 - Upgrade SCM 5.0 Macros in DP and SNP."
