Standard Application Software Product Families (SASPF)


Due to the fundamental renewal of the Bundeswehr the armed forces are faced with the greatest challenge ever since they have come into existence. Changes in the area of information technology are one element of the transformation process of the Bundeswehr.

The need for quick and reliable provision of information that is appropriate to the situation to support command and control processes had already been recognized in the mid-nineties. A number of more profound investigations ensued serving as a basis for new procedures. On 31 October 2000, the SASPF introduction strategy was approved by the decree of the State Secretary and its implementation was ordered.


In the future, redundancies, inconsistencies and different update versions of existing "insularities" of the technical information systems (FachInfoSys), which have grown over time, will be overcome and the costs for software maintenance and changes (SWPÄ) will be reduced by means of a "standardization" of the planning, controlling and supporting Bundeswehr business processes and the associated introduction of Standard Application Software Product Families (SASPF).

Objective of SASPF

Above all, the SASPF project is an organizational rather than a software project. IT is the core of the modernization of the Bundeswehr technical information systems and improves the quality of command and control information.

A holistic approach for process-oriented integration – across functional areas – of Bundeswehr processes on the basis of SAP products is the focus of the realization of the SASPF project. SASPF represents Bundeswehr business processes in an integrated SAP system and thus contributes considerably to an optimization of Bundeswehr processes.

With SASPF, approximately 55,000 users will be able to access constantly updated information via a uniform interface within the next few years. Another 85,000 users can be added in the area of Employee Self Service WHO, for instance, may plan and settle their duty trips or apply for leave by means of SASPF. In total, approximately 140,000 users will profit from the introduction of SASPF in the last expansion stage.
