Schedule Manager is an integral component of several modules in SAP such as Profitability Analysis (CO- PA), Product Cost Controlling, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Asset Accounting, and Funds Management among others. Because SAP did not tightly weave it into any particular application or module, making it more of a cross-application component, there is virtually no restriction on its use by any application or module. In other words, there isn’t one version of Schedule Manager for CO-PA and another for Funds Management — both use the same Schedule Manager tool and functionality. While primarily focused on period-end closing activities, Schedule Manager has become more versatile than its predecessor, Period-End Partner (PEP), and you can use it with more modules and sub-modules than PEP. The tool has no special requirements or costs and is part of the standard SAP releases since R/3 4.6 including R/3 4.7, mySAP ERP 2004, and mySAP ERP 2005.
