Customer Specified Placement

Here are the steps to the successful use of the CSP or CSRP process.

  1. Establish your customer's placement requirements for their new server.
  2. Design and establish your placement requirements and create your proposed system using:
    a. SPT for planning and eConfig for order creation
    Or
    b. eConfig to define both placement and order creation. This assumes you have completed placement planning prior to use of eConfig.
    c. Final planning and design of your system must be completed prior to ordering the server.
  3. Submit your order to IBM.
