SAP VC Health Check for Oracle CPQ

VCandBig - HealthCheck - ReportPg2We recommend when translating a SAP VC product model for the first few time you might want to execute the Avenue Health Check Report and refer specifically to the Formatting for Oracle CPQ | BigMachines category.   Of course, there are 8 other categories to review as well to help assure the VC model is in "good health".  

Other SAP VC categories that you might be interested in include: 1) Checks for performance pitfalls, 2) Good practices for Modeling Style, 3) Syntax, 4) Application Link Enabling (ALE) or 5) Characteristic Based Planning.

Extract a SAP VC Model

There is no need for a SAP Basis resource.  As long as you have authorization in SAP, all model objects can be extracted.  The SAP VC model(s) are extracted and imported to the cloud and into eSpline's Avenue Portal, processed and made ready for the translation.  In a production environment, you would not normally see this screen, it would be automated for you.
