Equivalent of credit check

If on "sales order" you have "credit check" that you can use to see if the customer is good,

what is the equivalent of this when you are making a consignment transaction?

I want to limit the total quantity of stocks in the customer's premise (for consignment).

Which one should I configure?

Please help. Thank you.

    Hi Anwar2012

    You could use a scheduling agreement or a contract to limit the stock quantity to a customer, and after, you can create a release order. I don´t have sure if have a control to stock on sales order like the credit check in standard system.

    att,

    • Activating credit management for consignment fill-up should not be

      possible for the following reason:

      When you do a consignment fill-up, this usually is not relevant for

      billing and therefore no values are updated. This is the standard set

      up. The reason for this is that the material belongs to the delivering

      company as long as it is not picked up.

      When you do a consignment fill-up it usually is not sure if the

      customer really takes the material and therefore it shouldn't update the

      credit value. The next problem would then be the settlement between

      consignment withdrawl and the fill-up orders.

      See the following OSS note which explains the issues:

      > 492831 Consignment and credit management

      I hope this helps

    Hi ,

    You can use the quanitity contract - Standard SAP doc type ( CQ ) Please refer and create Z document type and refer your consignment fill up document type to this quantity contract . This way you can keep a check on maximum quantity of consignment.

    Thank

    Hi,

    If you want to restrict/maintain quantity to a specific customer.We can go with field exit in customer master>shipping tab as customer consignment.here you can specify the Quantity for consignment.It has to be developed at transaction XD01 level.

    Note: It is not suggestible to do so.as per my knowledge there is no other configuration in standard for this specific requirement.

    Even in business process this consignment is issued to the customers who are at top rating.

    Otherwise you can follow the above experts suggestion which is simple and easy.

    Thank you.

    You can carry out simple credit check and put delivery block if customer's credit history is not good. This delivery block can be removed by the person having authorization.

    Simple credit check doesn't update credit exposure and for consignment fill up, it is not advisable also. Because you don't carry out billing for fill up orders. For more info, please let me know.

    Hi Anwer,

    In my view you can control this through status profile, assign status profile to consignment fill up document type,once some one

    rise an order for specific quantity the order will block for some superior's check,so the authorized person check the order and

    quantity then release the sale order.

    Regards

    Ram
