Key Concept

Manual Control Performance in SAP Process Control 10.1 enables business process owners and relevant teams to plan and perform control activities manually at the transaction level and to document their findings of control activities for subsequent control effectiveness testing and auditing.

Business users face challenges while performing control activities (for example, accuracy in control effectiveness). They strive to find ways to achieve timely performance using workflows and to upload evidence for activities. I explain how a business process owner can set up, execute, and document performance plan tasks that ensure faster execution, clear accountability of different stakeholders within the business process, and enhanced reliability and consistency of controls.

Manual Control Performance in SAP Process Control 10.1 enables business process owners to conduct control activities and deliver evidence documents to auditors. You can attach the evidence documents using an attachment feature. Business process owners can track multiple performance plans along with their statuses. I explain the setup of Manual Control Performance using a business scenario and show how to enable different stakeholders for different transactional activities at different levels within a performance plan.
