  3. Create R/3 source systems in the BW systems.
  4. Replicate the DataSources in the BW systems.
  5. Create or modify BW objects in the development system.
  6. Transport the objects from the development system to the quality assurance system for testing.
  7. After completing the testing, transport the objects from the development system to the production system.
