Top 20 SAP Transactions based on over 250 SAP Enterprises Worldwide

By Jim O'Farrell on July 21, 2011

Ever wonder how your firm stacks up with other firms in your industry in terms of business processes they are implementing with SAP? Or compare your volumes of business process as a metric in terms of competitiveness with your counterparts? For example, would it be interesting to you to understand what a benchmark for sales order creation would be in the Food & Beverages industry? Apparel? Aerospace? High Tech?

As we have been working on increasing our knowledge, information and data surrounding ERP Usability and in particular SAP ERP Usability, we have accumulated ST03N log files from hundreds of SAP shops around the globe. Of course, this information is confidential but looking at the information in aggregate is very telling. What for example is the number one transaction for business processing based on half a billion SAP fields and screens processed? Guess what? It’s VA02 – Change Sales Order! (Given the economy let’s hope it’s not about deleting sales orders!J)

There are many questions that can be asked and answered with this information for example… How many unique transactions are being optimized by this sampling of data? Would you guess it to be 500? How about 5,246 unique transactions – business processes — a fraction of the over 91,000 potential SAP transaction candidates… See the following table for a quick listing of the top 20 transactions.
