关于SAP蓝图是什么以及其中包含什么，我在工作中看到了很多差异，因此我决定要讨论这个问题并分享自己的想法。我不确定这个词的历史；我唯一可以追溯到的就是90年代’s when 树液’的ASAP方法论是关于“blueprint” was first used. I think this was a little confusing to some of us that were in software development prior to 树液 but I think it was partly a terminology. Certainly the term makes sense, but I think the industry as a whole would have been better served if it would have been called a functional spec. So why so much confusion? Part of the problem was that consultants that were coming into the field at that time had no background in software development . So the idea of a 蓝图/functional specification, or even in some cases the software development lifecycle may or may not have been meaningful to everyone that was placed on an implementation project. Now, of course 树液put together some decent training classes around ASAP (I took them) but even then the focus on the classes was the use of the tools 树液provided to support the implementation. So 这里 you have resources putting together a 蓝图 who do not completely understand it’的目的。他们所知道的是在Q的情况下&一个数据库，他们需要提出问题并记录答案。好的，我意识到SAP并不一定打算这样做，但是请相信我，这就是发生的事情。
To make the discussion easier let me throw myself out on a limb 这里 and define a 树液蓝图. I already alluded to the fact that a 蓝图 should be your functional specification.
My definition of a 蓝图:
“A software 蓝图 consists of the documented requirements and anything else that formalizes what the end product should look like from a user (Customer) perspective.” 这是 什么，而不是 怎么样 （这是一个重要的区别）。
如果您想获得有关功能规格的更多详细信息，建议您阅读有关软件的Joel。’功能规格说明 这里 正如我认为他能最好地解释它，以及为什么要重写它。
I’ll end today’建议：蓝图/功能规格至关重要，唐’做一个没有项目的项目，但要了解它的首要任务和需要的任务。唐’t just use the 蓝图 template that 树液provides (these days from Solution Manager). Use it as a starting point only. It should be developed based on your own needs. The term 蓝图 explains it all; you normally would not build a house without a 蓝图 but sometimes software is developed without a software 蓝图. Don’t do it. I’ll talk a little bit more about the 蓝图 and what should be included in it and 怎么样 to use it in subsequent posts.
