 Question Submitted By :: SD
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
 
Answer
# 1
Configuration: We configure the system to meet the needs of
our business by using existing data. Configuration uses the
inherent flexibility of the enterprise software to add
fields, change field names, modify drop-down lists or add
buttons

Customization: We customize or adapt the system accourding
to our business requirements, which is a process of mapping
SAP to our business processes. It is basically mapping of
business scenerios in system.We do all the customization in
IMG(Implementaion guide).

CONFIGURATION: The process of tailoring SAP software by
selecting specific functionality from a list of those
supported by the software, very much like setting defaults
(e.g., Word, Access)(changing switches or setting default).
It is what you do to have the system be able to execute
your business processes the way you want to be (configures
the system to meet the needs of your business by using the
existing data). It includes the physical layout,
interconnections and functional characteristics of the
system. It determines what the system will do and how its
parts will interact. It uses the inherent flexibility of
the enterprise software to add fields, change field names,
modify drop down lists or add buttons. Configurations are
made using powerful built-in tool sets.
Be careful with configuration. Once it is done, it is
very difficult to undo.
DOES NOT involve changes to the underlying software code.

CUSTOMIZATION: To customise or adapt the system to your
business requirements, which is the process of mapping SAP
to your business process. It involves code changes to
create functionality that is not available through
configuration. Customization can be costly and can
complicate future upgrades to the software because the code
changes/modifications may not easily migrate to the new
version.
If you change the code, SAP will no longer support you.
You should FULLY research before you make the decision to
modify.
Gateway Computer: not able to up-grade with JDE because
they made so many changes. They were stuck with a version
of software over a decade old without the functionality
they needed with the newest releases. (JD Edwards
Enterprise One is an integrated applications suite of
comprehensive ERP software that combines business value,
standards-based technology, and deep industry experience
into a business solution with a low total cost of ownership
(TCO))

Customization and Configuration are used interchangebly in
the SAP world and they mean the same thing.The Display IMG
structure begins with the SAP Customizing Implemenation
guide.The standard delivered business process through the
implementation guide can be referred to as
configuration.You can adapt the standard delivered
configuration to your company's requirement,which is
customizing.Sales process are controlled by Customizing for
sales documents.Cuatomizing can be done at header,item,or
schedule line level,depending on the structure of the
docment.
