SAP FI/CO consultant's role during upgrade from R/3 to ECC 6.0

SAP FI/CO consultants just need to test core business functionality after an upgrade from SAP R/3 4.7 to ECC 6.0.

What should the role be for an SAP FI/CO consultant during an upgrade from SAP R/3 4.7 to ECC 6.0? I have seen...

an upgrade done by an SAP Basis consultant, but what does a FI/CO consultant do during the upgrade process?

Upgrading to ECC 6.0 from SAP R/3 4.7 is what's called a technical upgrade. The core applications remain untouched. As such, the role of a FI/CO consultant should be limited to testing core business functionality after the upgrade.

However, this does not hold true if you use R/3 4.7 extensions, which are replaced by new components in ECC. If this is the case, extensive business testing is recommended. Furthermore, decisions related to modification adjustments and customer developments impacted by the upgrade also need to be tested in the new release.
