The Operations Management Workbench provides the following tools with various features:

  • SAP Monitoring and Control Tools which are used for monitoring critical system parameters as well as doing a root cause analysis if any parameter exceeds predefined threshold limits
  • SAP Preventive Maintenance Tools are used to anticipate errors that might occur in the future and therefore proactively take measures to prevent them
  • Reactive Maintenance Tools are used to analyze errors, their frequencies etc. so that measure can be taken to minimize further errors
  • Development Tools are used for Test Management, Change Management and certain other developer specific tools which can be used for analyzing logic and structure of programs etc.
  • Routine maintenance and Security Tools are used for User Maintenance and automated routine maintenance tools

The “SAP Monitoring and Control System” is the core tool which is used to monitor all critical system parameters of various satellite systems from a central location. The tool collects information over a period of time and uses statistical process control to determine if the parameter is stable or not. Since the trend is available over a period of time it can also be used for capacity planning. Also it can correlate different parameters that have been captured over a period of time to determine root cause analysis.
