Typical Checking Horizon setup for STO-RBATP scenario


Hello Experts,

I would like to know what is the Typical Checking Horizon setup for STO-RBATP scenario.

Scenario: Doing location substitution wherein an STR is being created and stock is being moved to the order location via STO.

What is the relevance of CH in rules based ATP (location substitution STR-STO scenario).

Is it necessary to maintain the CH or I can leave it blank. What is the consequences of leaving it blank?

I understand that the checking horizon in product master in apo =TRLT in the MM in ECC. If I leave it blank than, will I see any value being populated in the product master?

If the checking horizon is say 10 days, then does the system just checks the scope of check elements within those 10 days? If it goes beyond the horizon then what is the system behavior. Does it give the CSL to the SO assuming that there will be stocks?

What should be a typical CH days that should be recommended to Business? I know that its industry specific but consider Manufacturing industry for this case.

In my scenario, business people says its 4 months out and they have a specific date. So should I be using the CH calendar? Is it a good idea to have such a long CH. If yes then what is the consequences of having so long CH.
