Impact Analysis activate Availability Check with Replenishment Lead Time

Dear SAP Experts,

Our client have plan to activate Credit Limit Check, where after further study and confirm with SAP, it only check Sales Order with confirmed quantity.

Btw our client more toward make to order concept, means production/ procurement will be made after receipt sales order, thus during SO creation, there will be no stock to be confirmed, thus the availability check also did not function, SO will be able to create even though the value is exceeding maximum credit limit, and credit exposure also not updated.

Only after PO created or stock updated, then when update SO confirmed quantity, the credit limit check will function again, and block the SO in case credit limit exceeded, but this a bit too late, as we already buy the item, but then realized that we cannot send this part to the customer due to credit limit check.

Our requirement is to perform credit limit check during SO creation based on SO Order quantity, and also want it reflected in sales value and credit exposure when SO value does not exceeding credit limit check, using user exit we can achieve to perform checking based on sales order quantity instead of confirmed quantity, but it doesn't help on second requirement to update sales value and credit exposure (Update table S066 which only updated based on confirmed quantity).

SAP Support provide me with SAP Note 52437 which mentioned that for this kind of requirement, we need to activate replenishment lead time in availability check rule, which guarantee that sales order will always have confirmed quantity, either based on user requirement or within end of replenishment lead time.

I would like to ask all expert here, this configuration changes in availability scope will affect which transactions? we planned only to change checking rule A (Sales Order) to have availability check with RLT, does anyone now what kind of transactions will be impacted if we change the configuration in transaction OVZ9? we want to minimize the impact of this configuration changes, and would like to know this changes will have impacted which areas? as my understanding as we only change under checking rule A (SD Order), it should only affected this area.

Please help and share if you ever have similar situation& requirement, many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Andre Hartono
